Well....after eating all my own suggestions, my Dr told me to take Metamucil! I take 3 capsules a day and yes, it is working better than any food...sometimes Dr know what they are talking about :)

fiber one "honey squares" is a great cereal (both for breakfast and snack) only 80 cal per serving helps too :)
I eat alot of the "fiber one and fiber plus" snacks and cereals (certain ones are only 90 calories per bar)

If you are into veggies (I am!) both cabbage and broccoli are great fiber sources
and as mentioned beans and rice as well.

Kashi cereals are LOADED with fiber and taste so good !!

My favorite is Kashi go lean crunch has 8 grams of fiber.

Kashi makes hot cereal and bars too.

Beans can be added to a lot of dishes, or used to make tacos. I enjoy popcorn and fresh fruit as a snack and that also adds some fiber.

I have added flax seeds and nuts to my diet as I was always low on fiber.

My husband eats the Kelloggs Fiber Plus bars. They have the "sneaky" fiber in them, but it is better than nothing.
Beans, ground flax seeds, broccoli, sweet potatoes, steel-cut oats, just a few of really good sources of fiber

Two easy ways to boost fiber are raspberries, they are loaded with fiber and there are several tortillas that have as much as 14 grams for one and they are low fat too. I use Mission brand and find them at Kroger's. Popcorn has good fiber, I use an air popper

My son had the same problem and one thing that helped was more water. My son drank way too much soda and very little water. If he likes beans, that is another easy thing for him to eat easily. Bran flakes or any other high fiber cereals are no cook, easy to eat foods. Green leafy veggies, even frozen or canned have fiber also. If he will, metamucil is an easy way to get more fiber. (My son refused this advice!)

I need to help my son (adult) eat better. One of his problems is constipation. What type of foods should I recommend for him? He lives alone and doesn't like to cook. Thanks for your recommendations.
