    Hi,

    Just wondering if anyone else experience a really upset tummy when having bars ?
    I love the taste etc.. but they make me have terrible grumbly tummy pains, and have to rush to the loo ( dont mean to be graffic ) :sigh:
    Whats in them that does this, are they covered in Ex-lax, lol

    anyone else having the same probs ?

    This is quite common when you first have bars, but it's not usually an ongoing problem - phew. :p

    I have only even had 2 bars, and each time they seem to have the same effect, i think ill steer clear from them in the future..
    but i love the taste, especially the cranberry one,

    They are very high in fibre apparently, so can cause wind, upset tummy and dy..um diori...um loose poo :D

    I once gorged on 5 bars in one day...needless to say I never did that again :giggle:

    Dont have them at all now, I stick to shakes only :rolleyes:

    I think the bars are the next best thing to treat constipation.. lol
    I dont like the grumbly, gurgly feeling tho, ! then all of a sudden you have to do a 10 second sprint to the loo.. lol
    I will stay away from them..

    I experienced this when i started the bars. The first day was very bad. But by the end of the week i was ok. I think you just have to let your body get used to the bars. You also have to drink a glass of water with the bars, i think i read this on the wrapper. Maybe that will help abit.

    It does get better :) xx

    Try cutting your bars in half and eating them at different times of the day. Always eat with a drink, as you are not using fluid to make them up like you do the sachets.
