My favorite high fiber food that can easily, ahem, end backups (and it is yummy yummy yummy ) is split pea soup… make it yourself easy enough with:

split peas (dried bean section of grocery store, cheap too)

carrots (I use a bag of baby carrots)

chicken stock

either: bone from a spiral ham with some bits still attached, ham hock or two packets of Goya ham seasoning

i pressure cook for about 50 mins in my instant pot and it is sooooo tasty and has about 16 grams of fiber per cup! (If it’s too thick, add Water or stock)

I also use lentils too - they have good plant Protein and high fiber

Nutritional yeast (adds an aged cheese flavor)

chia seed pudding (make with a Protein Shake to add protein)

Ground flax seed (use in oatmeal or make flax crackers )

hemp seeds (also a good source of protein)

psyllium husk powder (what benefiber is made from) can be mixed into muffins, pancakes, or crackers. A little goes a long way!

Cocoa powder

Thank you all. I too love pea Soup. I'll also try the seed in my shakes.

If this is to "keep things moving", so to speak, you might benefit from consuming Probiotics (either in capsule form or in something like yogurt.). I eat a ton of salads that have lots of fiber and I still had issues and eating a small yogurt every morning has helped a lot.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
