What products do you use for fiber?
I am trying to get away from the miralax. It bloats me out so much that if I take it at noon I won't be hungry to 7-9pm at night.
I have found that Citrucel is nice. (It is a non-fermentable fiber so doesn't feed the bad bacteria).
I don't bloat out as I do from the miralax but I have to take 12 grams a day. (I believe miralax is 16 grams in a dose?). The biggest problem with Citrucel is they added a freaken ton of food coloring to it. It turns my urine a florescent yellow collor (like a neon highlighter). I can't imagine that is healthy either. Citrucel sells caplets without all the coloring. The issue with that is the price. To take 12 grams of caplets is about 24 caplets a day. That makes it expensive!
Fibercon is another option. Anyone try it?
What about benefiber or metamucil? According to this benefiber should cause less gas:
"Consuming wheat dextrin can produce less gas and bloating than psyllium, and it doesn't thicken so quickly in liquids. Psyllium may cause bloating or gas, especially the first week or two of regular use. However, gas and bloating do occur with either fiber in some sensitive individuals."
Cereal fibers rich in cellulose, such as wheat bran, are relatively resistant to bacterial fermentation.
