I know someone with a condition where they have to eat a fairly low fiber diet. I don't know how many g she should have, it might be subjective based on how she's handling it. So anyway, she tried to cut back on her meat consumption, but in turn, eats too much fiber. I don't think she has any desire to be completely vegetarian, but I think she'd like the option of eating less meat.



Is is possible to be veg*n or eat considerably less meat, get enough calories and nutrition, and get less than the recommended amount of fiber?



This type of problem has struck two members of my immediate family, so I worry about myself, which is mainly why I'm posting. What if I end up with the same (or similar) condition? I'm not vegan but cannot tolerate dairy. I'm crossing my fingers that it was a fluke and not hereditary!

I don't really know, but is there a good nutritionalist you can consult about this? Good luck!

Does juicing fruits and veggies remove enough fiber? Oh, and maybe juiced wheatgrass for extra protein.

I think nuts and avocados are fairly low in fiber.

Yeah nuts and seeds are a no-go. Forgot to mention that. I think she can handle much smaller seeds, like strawberry ones, but not any you'd generally eat just for the nutrition in them, like sunflower seeds. My dad's condition he has to remove ALL nuts and seeds, even teeny ones, though he doesn't have as much of a problem with fiber.



I also told her to go get checked for allergies because she's having skin problems on top of everything else.

Oh geez, that's pretty restrictive...

I totally forgot about eggs because I don't eat them myself, but if there are no problems with eggs (ethical or medical), they seem like they would be invaluable in a case like that.

Look at the rightmost column on the... third... page. It lists a bunch of low-fibre fruits and vegetables.

Enjoy your diet of what looks like OJ and pumpkin pie.

That is very helpful thanks! Luckily it's not me that has to stick to that diet, but I will pass this along to my sister.

If you're just blending the fruit and drink everything in there, you're still getting all of the fiber. But if you're juicing it with a juicer, most juicers take out all of the pulp and bulky stuff.
