I agree with blkane--both types of fiber are necessary, and the major issue is how hard it is to pass stool. Oatmeal or other whole grain cereal, metamucil, and fruit neatly solve the problem. My father knew what he was doing when he insisted on having fruit to put on his AM cereal every day. He indoctrinated all of us that ceral plus milk needs fruit to taste good. At this time of year, it's either bananas, craisins, or dried apricots. In the summer, I go for peaches or berries.
