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

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
