Default How to not feel hungry all the time..

Not that I recall, but I sure could have missed The Fiber Diet or
whatever they called it. You know I have looked at fiber supplements
and even bran, metamucil, etc. before, but I was kinda confused about
why there were calories listed for it. If it's fiber there shouldn't
be calories. Then I figured out that it has other stuff in it, so
there will be a few calories in the product.


Actually, I think that soluble fiber is counted as calories and that's what
those powdered supplements are. Insoluble fiber, like wheat bran, is very
low calorie.

"According to the FDA, soluble fiber is listed on food labels as having
calories because it does, in a roundabout way, contribute calories to the
body. This is because most soluble fiber is used by the bacteria in the
colon to produce short-chain fatty acids which, in turn, are used by the
body. These calories do not raise blood sugar, so when counting carbs, those
in soluble fiber (like insoluble fiber) don't count towards the total. This
same situation is also true of oligosaccharides, which may or may not also
be listed as fiber."
