another fiber question: supplementing on a cutting diet
so currently i consume id say around 15-18g of fiber a day in a 1850 calorie cutting cycle.
im not constipated or anything like that. i only have to go once every two days.
anyways, since i only consume carbs breakfast, pwo, and ppwo. when is the best time to take a fiber supplement? is it ok to take it all by itself? say inbetween two meals?
i looked at metamucil today, didn't say how many grams of fiber it had. said each serving was like 20 calories.
how much fiber does a fiber sup. usually have per serving?
so how will this affect my cutting diet? is it ok to get a product that tastes like orange, or does it have unessary ingredients?
will taking a fiber supplement with say breakfast subtract the carbs in my oatmeal from the fiber in the fiber supplement?
with adding fiber supplement, i am going to have to cut calories else where to make up for the added fiber sup?

In a nutshell, just take some psyllium husks, Metamucil MAY have sugars, you have to check the back. Eat fiber with whatever meal you want, just not your post workout shake, it slows digestion.

Rambo nailed it...take fiber at any and all meals - just not PWO as it slows digestion.
and the calories from fiber supps should be negligible...don't change your diet to compensate.

sorry dont wana hijack but if it slows digestion would it be good to take right before bed so it slows the protien down?
