What about fiber supplements? Consistently eating a balanced diet is a challenge for me. I rely on vitamin supplements to fill in the gaps. What about taking a fiber supplement as well?

Getting adequate fiber intake can be tricky and it does take some effort and planning. I always suggest that people try their best to get their fiber intake from whole foods (fruits, vegetables, whole grains etc). However, I do know that people lead busy lives and this is not always possible. If a fiber supplement is required to help you consistently reach your fiber goal (20-35 grams per day), then I would recommend a supplement such as Benefiber, or a powder fiber supplement which dissolves 100% into liquids and food. Mixing this with water or juice, for example, is a double bonus because you will be getting extra fiber in addition to much needed fluid, which can help you to have normal bowel movements.
