  • Yes, fascinating and simple stuff. Fibre and vinegar. Brings back memories of decades back when I worked for a vitamin firm and Apple Cider Vinegar was all the rage for pretty much everything from digestion to hair.

    I'll have to watch again, I didn't get that soluble fibre was the most effective. I took out of it that insoluble fibre was the answer.

  • This episode was inspiring! The everyday remedies of high-fibre and a Vinegar supplement are simple, cheap and apparently effective. There's quite a difference between soluble fibre (eg Chia, Okra) and in-soluable fibre (example is Celery perhaps?) and I gather that the soluble is the more valuable.

    Searched online recipes for 'high-fibre recipes' only to find there are supposedly hundreds but picking them out from the flashing ads and the half-told stories with links to so many other pages … aarrhh, I've found a list of highest-fibre foods and will work from that instead.

    List here: in brief it is ...

    Apples, Pears, Parsnip, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Spinach, whole Grains, Quinoa, Amaranth, Legumes, Beans, Flax seeds and Chia seeds.
