I have a gallbladder problem that I use to control by eating lots of whole grain and high fiber things like bread and oatmeal and such.. I have been doing induction now for a few weeks and my gallbladder is starting to let me know that it is there again. Any suggestions on how I can get more fiber in without going over 20 carbs/day?
Also, are green beans and spaghetti squash allowed during induction? Couldn't find reference to them in NDR.
Thanks so much!!

On Induction you should be eating 12-15 carbs of allowed veggies & salad. For even more fiber, Dr. Atkins does recommend the psyllium husks Leenie mentioned. And as Shauna suggested, flaxseed is also an excellent source of fiber. The Induction friendly flaxseed muffin is a good way of working more fiber into your eating:
I have some fiber tablets that I used for a few weeks when I started eating low carb - don't need them any more which is strange because I'm still not getting a lot of dietary fiber but my system seems to have adjusted. That said, I don't have gallbladder problems that I'm trying to manage.
