3. Oats

A healthy OAB diet should include both soluble and insoluble fibers, and oats are a great source of the soluble variety. By soaking up water and forming a gel in the digestive tract, soluble fiber slows the digestive process, keeps you full for longer, and uses excess water – which means less to fill your bladder and trigger OAB symptoms after the meal. Low in fat and high in a variety of minerals, a helping of oats can also add healthy, low-calorie bulk to meals and treats, too: think about swapping steel cut oats for breadcrumbs in savoury dishes, or quick-cooking oats for flour in muffins and crumbly toppings.
