Is citrucel or any other fiber supplement connected to weight gain?

Is citrucel or any other fiber supplement connected to weight gain?

No: Fiber supplements are not digested - that's what makes them fiber. They just sit in your intestines and attract water, helping to soften stools and make bowels regular. Since not digested, no calories or weight gain. Some may contain other ingredients to make them more palatalbe and tasty (i love the fiber brownies!) - then these do indeed have calories. Read container and see if lists calories. ...Read more

Possibly: Each state differs some in what they allow food stamps to be used for. Fiber supplements and vitamins are likely to be allowable since they can improve and maintain overall health.

What are some techniques to cope with anxiety? My parents don't want me on medication but I shake constantly and I worry about every single thing I do

General Anxiety: If you are medically cleared for any physical disorder, I would suggest trying some cognitive/behavioral therapy. Medication is not always necessary and you could be taught techniques to control your thinking and physical reactions. By the way, the worst thing you could be doing is panicking about the anxiety- this always makes things worse. ...Read more

When I drink too much alcohol I start to shake, is this because of my medication escitalopram?

Sigh: You are on Lexapro (escitalopram) because you are depressed, and you are telling me you are drinking heavily! This is very bad for your depression and your overall health, and doesn't allow your medication to work. Talk to your doctor and get help! You should not be drinking even socially, let alone heavily. The shaking may indeed be a reaction to the combo. I am more concerned about ur drinking than shaking. ...Read more

Will drinking Chia seeds in my protein shakes cause a false positive on a drug test?

Highly doubt it: Chia seeds are very healthy (see https://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/patientinstructions/000727.htm)

Is guave shake good during diet?

Sure: Just go really easy on the sugar. Don't expect any magical health benefits. While you're dieting, you know to avoid anything heavy on sugar, salt, or grease.

Is it bad not to shake medcinie when it says to because you forgot?

Not sure it matters: I don't think it matters if you shake the medication well before use or not. The only reason it's needed in most causes, is if it has been sitting in one place for a long time without use. You may not get an even dose of the medication if it's not shaken well, however you'll eventually get the amount that your suppose to get if you finish it completely. Not sure if I went the right direction... ...Read more

Citrucel, how often should you use this?

What'd U want it 2do: 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 and improves bowel regularity. Fiber can be used as an adjunct to weight loss by filling you up without excess calories, and in so doing restricting fat intake.
