Pasta. 12g per serving.
Oats in my shakes
Beans (black has almost an equal proportion of protein and fibre. Kind of cool)

I working on becoming a vegetarian so I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits.

I also eat a lot of white rice (not a very good source of fiber).

I also usually eat a big bowl of hot oatmeal or granola a day.

Oh and I snack on Kashi granola bars b/t meals.

Mostly for health reasons, but environmental and inhumane treatment of farm animals are factors also.

Check out The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, its by far the best book I've read this year. Good luck!

.

Make sure to keep your caloric intake up as well and get lots of fats. Quinoa is close to a complete protein and so is tofu but I will let you decide whether to intake tofu or not. Everyone thinks they are an expert in the matter.

I ate a disgusting amount of beans and fats.

Organic is infinitely better than the grotesque stuff produced by factory farms but even then, from my preliminary and ongoing research, meat, even wild/organic is extremely harmful to people if eaten on a regular basis.

For most of human history, people have lived on a plant based diet and meat was a luxury- eating maybe only a few times a month if even that. Our bodies have evolved to suite this diet.

No society is however fully vegetarian, meat is eaten sparingly to get some nutrients that are hard to come by from plants. I've abstained from eating farmed animals but still eat some wild fish (sushi).

Here is a introduction to the benefits of going vegetarian or at least limiting meat consumption.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zG_tn...eature=related

For more in depth information (on research and studies) I recommend reading "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell and "Healthy at 100" by John Robbins. For information on how your meats are raised and processed read "Slaughterhouse" by Gail A. Eisnitz. All are available from your local library.

Do as much research for yourself as possible, keep abreast of current and new research and come to your own conclusions. Live long and prosper.

^ placebo effect

My buddy was hawking the same product few months back. I gave it a try since he gave me some free sample. the shit taste nasty and it feels like your drinking slime. Buddy said to drink it for at least a week, I will see improvements.

After the end of the week all I want to do is puke. what is wrong with getting the proper nutrient the old school way by eating the actually thing instead of slime?

i dunno how a FUCKING JUICE can give you fibre. unless the rind's or seeds are in it lol.

bah you guys are pretty much in the same place I am... lol.

I can say I'm a regular guy guy. I take a dump in the morning, maybe once in the mid-day and then one about 8-9 oclock.

even though I'm regular.... the fuckin shit varies in shapes, sizes and colors... i don't think it's supposed to be like that... lol

aren't they all supposed to be logs?
