I'm so glad to be eating ACTUAL fibre, it is definitely making a difference to my indigestion system.
Sure fibre is in most foods you eat but there are also a load of foods that contain sugar in it. Sugar cancels fibre. I prefer to shove out a lot of sugar from my diet cos that stuff is toxic and eat a lot more fibre.
One thing I did think about at Christmas this year was how in the past Christmases my Nan would have a packet of dates on the table and a bowl of nuts as well as sugar-filled sweets and chocolates.
I can understand why now. I would rather eat a bag of pitted dates over a bag of Galaxy Minstrels now.
All those years when I was younger I used to intake so much sugar and that isn't good for digestion/bowels. Now, I eat a lot more fibre and my guts have never felt so alive :).
