    I need to eat more fibre (don't ask). Does a cherry and sultana flapjack have much roughage?

    I suspect I may have to start drinking more Guinness. In fact, that seems like a plan :)

    bananas, brown bread

    cant remember what else i was told though, but theres 2 different types of fibre, depends which one you need...

    but generally whole grain foods, such as brown bread, brown rice, pasta

    Better have your gas mask ready then!

    Rutty - don't drink too many fizzy drinks - they certainly can make you fart.

    Weetabix or All Bran is good to start the morning with! Cleans out the curry from the evening before! :)

    Dried bananas - not the yellow crunchy ones, but the black gooey ones - delicious. They are highly fibrous ;)

    Oh yeah, and no "mystery meat pie" or "curiously tasty omeletes" for you ... :eek:

    Digestive biscuits... as the name suggests they were first invented as an aid to digestion or something along those lines... keeps everything moving along! [​IMG]

    I was thinking more Darnassus Bleu or perhaps Crispy Spider's Legs?

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I've been very lazy with the cooking recently. Single life has seen me regress into bad eating habits - pizza, pasta, pasties and pies (no peas) - and I've been neglecting fruit, veg and a number of other digestion/nutrition-friendly substances.

    Naturally, my alimentary canal is revolting ;)

    Time to visit Sainsbury's and get some healthy food. Having just said that I've just eaten a packet of Nik Naks, drunk a bottle of vanilla coke and enjoyed a fruit and nut flapjack ;)
