Prunes are the MVP for regularity

by JOE

I was advised by two doctors to eat more fiber. One said consume more metamucil. That didn't help much. The other said consume more natural fiber. As I experimented with different kinds of fiber, I found that 6 dried prunes, eaten as is, helped the most along with eating an apple a day and some high fiber whole grain cereal with ground up flax seeds sprinkled on it. Haven't had any regularity issues in the past few months.

Going away for a few days? Make sure you take a bag of dried prunes. Easy to get through the screeners at the airport. If you can't get the other fiber rich food, double your consumption of prunes.

Thanks for sharing Joe. I could not agree more regarding "natural fibers" vs. metamucil. I (finally) posted my thoughts on fibers supplements here :
The great fiber myth

Lots of push from the industry, when there is a simple and cheap alternative. Fortunately for us, you can't patent prunes!
