Kellogs AllBran Buds. 1/3 cup has 12g fibre and 70 calories. What I do is mix that with a serving of fat-free Astro yogurt (50 calories) for a really filling 120 calorie snack. I used to take Metamucil, now I just eat this a few times a week.

Psyllium husks. I bought them in a bulk food store and add them to oatmeal, shakes, I even sprinkly some on my berries sometimes.

Hummus - 207 cals and 7.5 grams of fiber per half cup

I love scooping it up with vegetables (like carrot and celery sticks)

My nutritionist said to make sure that whatever grain you eat, strive to get 2g of fiber for every 15g of carbohydrate. That's basically only whole-wheat products (but not ALL whole-wheat products - check labels), but I don't mind. Ryvita crackers are good.

There are lots of grains besides whole wheat. Some so much more nutritional and tasty too.

Cool

I use unprocessed bran. You can find it with the cereals. I use about 3 tablespoons in a meal replacement shake. You can put it juice or milk or in cereals. I also take triphala. It is an east Indian herbal combination that helps keep you regular. I got the idea from Dr. Andrew Weil. Also, you might just try taking Metamuscil regularly if that's eaiser.

for maximum easyness, you might buy some low-carb high fiber tortillas. They have 7-8g fiber each and 50 calories - a good lunch might be a couple of wraps made with these with your favorite on-plan fillings. 15 or so grams of fiber in a single lunch!

Beans are high fiber. I understand about not wanting to spend lots of time cooking and then packing a cooler into the trunk, but blend up some canned beans with some spices and/or salsa, and dip veggies into them. No cooler or cooking needed. Also good in chili, tortilla wraps, soups. Rice & bean casseroles (Cuban, Puerto Rican, Creole, Indian -- lots of cuisines to choose from here).

If you're at all interested, I can post some recipes.

Whole-grain bread makes high-fiber sandwiches, especially if you stuff them with veggies.

Fruit has fiber.

Come to think of it, things that need a cooler don't generally have much fiber, because they're meat or dairy.

Every morning for breakfast I have 1 cup Fiber One cereal, with 1/2 cup Carb Countdown skim milk. 28 grams of fiber and about 140 calories.

Raspberries are very high in fiber (8 g per cup) and they have far fewer calories than whole wheat bread or bran flakes. If you have some good fibre cereal with a couple handfuls raspberries on top in the morning, it'll usually add up to 1/2 your fibre intake for the day.

Almost all sorts of beans are very good as well. Low-fat chili or bean/lentil soups will totally fill you up and give you tons of fibre.

I have used psyllium husk in caplet form, but if I dont order the one that has apple pectin, it actually does nothing for me in the bowel dept, in fact I kinda feel like it makes the situation worse, however, the one that has the apple pectin in it, seems to work fine.
