I'll try that...

Yes, I'm a big fan of Lustig ever since I saw Sugar: The Bitter Truth.  He does seem quite credible.  He explains in great detail the reasoning behind what he says, and so if it were bullshit, it isn't like it'd be difficult for anyone to call him on it.  Yet the only arguments against him that I read are from people who clearly don't know anything about what he has to say.

I will have to try getting more fiber next time I'm at the store.  I used to buy whole wheat bread and pasta, but haven't bought any bread in a while, and switched to regular pasta after one day I couldn't find the whole wheat kind at the store.  I may have to look for some vegetables too, but I'm not a fan of vegetables so I don't know if I'll find anything.  Indeed, after buying some "Campbell's Chunky Soup" I'm kind of afraid of anything that comes in a can.  Seems they use the metal to conceal the incredibly cheap and near-rotten ingredients. 

As best I can estimate, I'm presently consuming 10 to 15 grams of fiber per day, from lettuce, tomato, and pasta.  ...or, well, probably less than that, because keeping fresh lettuce and tomato in the house is a pain in the ass and so half the time I just make tacos without it.  It's too bad the new Dollar General in town stocks no fresh foods, and instead only has a few aisles of sugar in boxes.  It'd be a lot easier if I could stop by the store every few days.  ...or if anything from Wal-Mart wasn't only three days away from rotting. 

How much fiber does Lustig recommend consuming in his book?
