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.

http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/que...lefibercal.htm

"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."

I inadvertantly discovered something when I was dieting. Although I
managed to lose down to a very slim and trim 136 pounds which is right
where I should be, but I learned how to control hunger. The secret?
Fiber. Fiber has to be eased in to though. You can't comfortably start
eating 500% of the minimum recommended fiber without suffering
bloating, etc. But you can build up to it very easily.


For breakfast I often have a serving of Wheatena hot cereal and I add 1/3 -
1/2 cup of wheat bran to it. The wheat bran adds loads of fiber and very
few calories but it really bulks up the cereal. You end up with a massive
bowl of the stuff. I add fruit (fresh as much as possible but sometimes I'm
out and used dried), Equal, unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze milk and
cinnamon. It's very filling and yes, it will keep you regular!

Informative post on how to not feel hungry all the time and like to add to not feel hungry all the time, break meals in small frequent meals and add fruits and vegetables more in your daily meals.

Sounds absolutley delish! I would just ensure having some banana there as well! Nothing starts the day better than a good banana (perhaps a little honey, if you are indulging) and thay are also, I have found, settling for the stomach.

I'm a huge fan of natural mild yoghurt to keep those hunger pangs away

EXACTLY my situation! I'm obsessed with food. I would eat pizza, KFC,
cookies, bagels, cakes all day every day. If you told me I have only a
month to live, I would pig out all day.

I've started buying large quantities of vegetables. I have to find a
way to eat all that. I've just finished another big salad with red
leaf, cucumber, one tomatoe, dried parsley, onion, black pepper and
salt. Very low calorie meal and very water-dense, with lots of
vitamines and minerals. After that, I steamed brocoli. Later on, I'll
cook a steak.

I'm very happy to hear about your success. Do you take any supplements
like vitamins or minerals? Do you think having minerals off multi-
vitamins has the same effect as having minerals off food?
