fiber into my diet. I am falling short and need some suggestions of good foods with lots of fiber.

I know I've asked this before but it was a year or so ago and I obviously didn't take it in. Thanks!

What plan are you on? If you are a calorie counter these things should work: Black beans, hemp protein powder, lentils...here's a link with a chart:

Ever since I became vegan more than a year ago I have been SO regular (if you know what I mean).

So my advice? EAT MORE VEGGIES!

The only thing that I can add to Robin's exhausive list is ground flax seed (sprinkle it on salad or cereal).
