Fiber and carb watching

So I've been trying to incorporate more fiber into my diet...I know fiber can be really helpful with weightloss....but I'm a little worried about the carbs in high fiber cereals etc...I've tried the atkins bars which are very high in fiber ( 11 grams per bar) and very low in carbs...but I cant force myself to eat those for more than one meal a day... does anyone else know some fiber rich and low carb foods? And which should I be more worried about, avoiding excess carbs or getting alot of fiber?

What about a supplement like "Benefiber"? You can mix it into yogurt, or drinks, with no noticable taste or texture difference?

One thing I really like for lunch is a "wrap". It's basically a heavy duty tortilla. I think the brand name is Flat Out. They have a light or carb down version which has 9 grams of fiber, and very few net carbs. I get mine at Wal-Mart in the deli section. I put lean turkey and spinach on mine, with fat free dressing. It's great, I love it! Also, I don't know the carb content but Kashi Go Lean cereal has 10 grams of fiber in a cup and 13 grams of protein, pretty good for a cereal.

Check the sugar content (should be low) and then the overall calories, which are what matter most in the end anyway. A cereal like Fiber 1 has more than your day's worth of fiber (28g) in 1 cup for only 120 calories.

Vegetables are very high in fiber and low in calories, too!

I also like Kashi Go Lean. Try South Beach Diet bars, I find them in the cereal section of the grocery store, much more palatable than the Atkins bars.
