Is it weird that I eat raisin brand or fiber bars everynight in order to go poo in the morning? I cant go without it and im only 19. Is this bad?
Fiber is good 4 you: Fiber (water soluble & water insoluble) 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. Consider that your diet throughout the day may be too low in fiber otherwise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many protein bars, etc add FOS (Fructo-oligosaccharides). Is it used for adding fiber in their product? Do they provide same benefit as fiber from foods?
No way; all sugars:: Fructose=a specific sugar (very unhealthy when concentrated) & saccharides=chains of sugar. Oligo means short (i.e. easy to digest quickly into simple sugars which are rapidly absorbed; also rapidly converted by liver into triglyceride fats for storage if not physically very active when consuming). Study: http://goo. Gl/uDGIwD for understanding. FOS is added for sweet-tooth/low$/sales, NOT health! ...Read more
Is just 1 fiber one bar a day healthy? I like the peanut butter one that has 9 grams of fiber. I eat that with banana and green apple
Neither good nor bad: A Fiber One bar is by itself neutral. It is not good enough to be called "healthy" (it is a highly processed food material), yet it is not bad enough to call "unhealthy". Therefore, whether a Fiber One bar is healthy or not will depend on what the person eats during the course of the entire day. Healthiness of one item is relative in this case, and must be compared to the other items of the day. ...Read more

I been having gas from fiber bars, green apples and bananas and whole grain bread. Will the gas eventually go away if I keep on diet and toughen it?
Don't think so: People who eat lots of fiber tend to have lots of gas, as the undigested fiber is a picnic for billions of bowel bacteria. There are reportedly more billions of bacteria inside our bowels than the number of cells we have making up our own bodies. The bacteria will likely keep eating and keep making gas, as long as the "food" keeps coming down the pipe. One can try weaning down the fiber. ...Read more

Haven't had a bowel movement in 9 days. What do I do? Have tried laxatives as well as fiber bars, nothing is working.
It: It is crucial you seek medical attention. The constipation can be due to a bowel obstruction, which is best described by a small or large blockage in the intestines. Continued obstruction can cause a perforation of the bowels - where the fecal matter punctures the intestines. This can be life threatening. I recommend going to an urgent care or emergency room. If the constipation can not be relieved with enemas or other treatments, further tests, such as abdominal xray or ultrasounds studies will need to be performed. Get help. ...Read more
What to do about constipation in 3 year old? 3 year old doesn't want to use potty---holds it. Is taking miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily. Eats fiber bars. Doesn't like apple juice. Is constipated. Rectal suppository not working.
More miralax (polyethylene glycol): Talk to your doctor, but if she is still constipated on MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) she may need a higher dose of miralax (polyethylene glycol). If she is eating fiber bars make sure she is drinking plenty of water. She should also sit on the toilet for at least 15 minutes after each meal. Get her a foot stool so it is more comfortable to sit on the toilet that long. If all that doesn't help, she should see a pediatric GI doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
