Fiber conflict: Fiber, of both water soluble and water insoluble variety, provides health benefits. Fiber accelerates how quickly food transits through the gut. Fiber adds bulk to stool ; improves bowel regularity. Fiber can be used as an adjunct to weight loss by filling you up without excess calories ; in so doing restricting fat intake. Too much fiber can make you gassy ; increase stool volume--hence conflict.
