How can I increase my intake of dietary fiber?

To increase your fiber intake, try starting the day with a high-fiber cereal and eating fruit for snacks. Limit the amount of foods you eat with almost no fiber, such as cheese, meat, ice cream, and many processed foods. If you are not used to eating high-fiber foods, add them gradually to your diet to prevent gas, bloating, or diarrhea.
