Can We Talk About Fiber?

* I completely missed the Biggest Loser on Tuesday night. Sorry folks, but no recap/analysis here.*

So, fiber. We're told to get as much fiber in our diet as possible, right? Well, one thing we don't consider are the repurcussions. GAS. Seriously. At first it was the infamous Fiber One bars. I'd eat one and about two hours later, my belly would be grumbling and revolting against me... only for the problem to be gas. I'm finally finished with my box of Fiber One bars from Sam's so I thought my gas problem was over. I bought a box of Kashi Go Lean Crunch this week, and the gas is back. I LOVE the Kashi Go Lean Crunch. I want to continue eating it for breakfast. But how is it that at 11AM or noon, my belly starts grumbling and making weird noises. I had a student in my office yesterday when this happened. Instead of saying, Oh, it's just gas, I lied and said, Oh, I'm hungry, I haven't eaten lunch yet. I wasn't hungry! I was gassy!! So, eating healthier has turned me into a walking gas bomb. And I've heard that it isn't just me. So, are we all lying to each other when our belly rumbles and we say we're hungry? I'm beginning to think that .....

Yes! Fiber is such a double edge sword. I recently discovered the Go Lean Crunch and I agree...it's worth the side effect. ;-)
