The best time to start increasing fibre intake is at breakfast. Look for high-fibre cereals that contain 15 grams of fibre per serving and the least amount of sugar. Be sure to buy brown rather than white rice, whole wheat pasta rather than regular pasta and whole wheat bread rather than white bread. Also add lentils, black beans, green peas, tomatoes, celery, prunes, pears, broccoli, bananas and roasted almonds to your diet, all high in fibre content.
