I am a big supporter of fiber and how important it is in the diet.  Fiber has more benefits than a lot of people know about.  One of the biggest positives of fiber is that it is very important in helping to prevent colon cancer as well as some studies show that it can help prevent other types of cancer including uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, and even breast cancer.  Other benefits include helping to control weight, relieving constipation, and lowers blood cholesterol levels.  I am all about trying to prevent cancer as cancer terrifies me so anything I can do to help prevent it, I do it!

Every morning I always have a bowl of oatmeal – oatmeal is super rich in fiber and is a nice way to wake up my stomach, intestines, and bowels and get them going.  Graphic, I know.  Being incontinent does not mean you should not keep your intestines and bowels running good.  Its still extremely important.  I usually by the High Fiber Quaker Oatmeal – it has about 40% of the recommended fiber intake (10 grams).  Through out the day I also try to eat a lot of vegetables and fruit even though I don’t always succeed.  But, I probably consume at least 25-35 grams of fiber each day…some days more and some days less.  Forces me to change my diaper a bit more since it makes me even more “regular” you could say – but, its worth it to me to be healthy.

I encourage everyone here if you are not getting enough fiber that you should.  It will just make you feel better, trust me.  Try eating more whole grains.  Simple things like substitute your white bread for 100% whole wheat bread and throw some nuts into your daily intake…preferably almonds!  Almonds are one of the best foods for you – good for protein, fiber, and healthy fats.  Healthy fats are super important too but that is another post for another day.

Plus, if you eat healthier and more whole grains, etc etc; your poop will be “firmer” (we are all adults here, graphic but only way to describe) and will come out easier and actually will not smell as potently.  One of my tricks 🙂 Anyways, the point is that ever since I have been making sure to get fiber I typically poop at least once or twice a day which for me is healthy because I know my body.  Some people may go more or less – there is not set number for everyone.  Just be sure you have a good diaper to contain it all if you have been constipated or what not and you start taking fiber – because more than likely at first you will go a lot – like I did 🙂  I know this post was all over the place but hopefully you gleamed the important facts from it.

    Hi Adrain. Nice topic regaurding fiber. Not to long ago, I got me some fiber laxative caplets just to try them out. They are a lot better than a regular laxative if anyone one has been backed up. Yeah, we are all different when it comes to poop in ones diaper for how graphic one can go for satisfaction of a messy diaper from time to time of point of view and keeping grapichs in check on this blog here.

    When I was wearing my diapers late last year in the reply I post to the last topic posted, I kept track of my diaper usage in terms of regularity. I’m going to start that again along with writing down what I eat and my workout routine to get some unwanted wieght off and get some energy back.

    As crazy as my hours are for me, Its still tough to get oneself in a routine for sleep and eating better than just getting by in the day. Not to mention the heat in my part of town is not fun right now. Yeah, salad bar at work and fruits and stuff like that are a lot better than what is on the steam table in the deli where I work. I also take my lunch that I make from home now and then. Two sandwhiches bag of chips things like that. Most of the time I will get me one from a subway. Just depends on “no pun intended to Depends” what I feel like eating when I’m hungry. Ha!Ha!

    Lets all stay healthy and regular with our diapers and have fun. Take it easy everyone.

    Great post. Very timely for me. I have been thinking alot lately about making a healthier me. I will add more fiber (almonds) and eat more fruits. I think that I will also start doing a little more exercise. It is always good to hear from someone doing what everyone knows they should. It can give you a little nudge in the right direction. Any other tips from Adrian would be appreciated by me.

    I recently started work in a pharmacy and am soooooooo surprised at the number of people with high blood pressure & diabetes. So I checked my own blood pressure and I was high. I am starting to cut soda out of my diet and eat what is good for my body. Diabetes scares me alot. Besides being very unpleasant it is probably to most expensive medication to purchase. You think you spend alot in diapers?!

    I have diabetes (Type 1, from birth) and that is cause of my incontinence, diabetes is awfull, but if I see video’s about what some American people eat and how fat they are it’s their own fault they get diabetes(type 2) because they are overweight.

    I do everything I can to stay as healthy as possible…

    Okay, so i know this is a wierd question but im curious. I have urinary incontinence and how it feels….but like…how does it feel to have bowel incontinence , like does it just happen ?? does it come as a surprise or do you have warning. I know this seems like a stupid question but ive always wondered.
