For low cal and high fiber, try spinach and other leafy greens like collards, swiss chard, and rappini.

Other vegetables high in fiber and low in calories are broccoli, artichokes, asparagus, cauliflower, eggplant and pumpkin (even canned).

Plus, the benefit of getting your fiber from vegetables (vs supplements, or grain producs with supplemented fiber (aka labed "high fiber")) is that the fiber is naturally combined with the water your body needs to handle the fiber!

(I get about 70 grams of fiber a day and don't take supplemented fiber, nor supplemented products.)
