Does anyone have any tips for me to get more fibre in within the 800 cal – I absolutely love veggies so that’s not an issue, but I’m finding that there is no way I can eat 23g fibre a day. Using MFP to track macros.
Example, I’m doing TRE so just eating lunch and dinner, yesterday I had:
Chicken stir fry with soy sauce for lunch using a pack of bean sprouts, red pepper, shredded cabbage, carrots, broccoli and onion
10g walnuts with this
Pork in mustard sauce from the recipe book with 100g cabbage, 100g sprouts and mushrooms and onion and leek in the sauce
All added up to about 780 cals, MFP says 40g total carbs, 20g which sugar but only 6 fibre??
I feel like I’m eating a lot of fibre rich foods, I also love beans and lentils (in moderation of course) and I sometimes eat porridge (jumbo or pinhead) and I eat a decent amount of chia seeds, flax seeds, although these are horrendously calorific and I don’t find them filling so not enormous amounts of them, but I rarely get above 10g fibre a day, which I know is not enough.
For context, I have always loved veg, particularly leafy green vegetables. Prior to doing fast800 and previously BSD I also loved things like all bran, whole grain bread etc. I also have a bowel condition that was worse when I was a child, but the doctors answer was always “eat more fibre” and my mum used to joke she’d have to stew up cardboard boxes to get more fibre into me. I hate salad in all forms but will occasionally force some down. I just cannot work out how to more than double my fibre intake when my plate is already half full of green veg every day!
