    Its called Fibresure isn't it? I didn't take any fibre supplements while on LT and got mildly constipated first time I went to the toilet, all other times after that have been fine so that might have been a water thing.

    The Fibresure stuff increases your fibre intake without any additional calories. It bulks up the waste in your gut so theres a mass for your intestines to push along. In basic terms your intestines sort of contract and relax to squeeze material along it, if theres more material because of fibre, your intestines keep pushing it along.

    However, it is important to keep your water up because excess water is absorbed from what you eat in the large intestine, if you don't have enough water this will result in dry and hard stool ie constipation.

    It really seems to vary from person to person as to whether you need to use the stuff or not, I didn't and haven't encountered any real problems or needed to use laxatives but others have done.

    One thing to ask yourself is do you normally have any trouble passing motions and how regularly you go. If everything is fairly normal in that department then perhaps the fibre supplement isn't necessary and just watch your water intake. If you feel you do suffer from constipation at all or seem to have a very long digestive cycle then ask for the fibre supplement which the chemist should sell.

    I don't know how LT safe it is but you can find similar supplements in Boots, one I currently use now that I've stopped LT is Benefibre. Dissolves in pretty much anything and two teaspoons gives me something like 70% of the fibre you need daily, does seem to make you pass wind more often but its completely odourless which is a good sign biologically speaking.

    The Pharmacy where you do your LT should have free samples of Fibresure for you to try, I was given one today ( only took one dose so can't really comment on it yet ) the sample has a few doses in it. My Pharmacist also said they sell it and should cost me around £5 for a tub.

    I use this regularly now........ and would recommend it. It keeps me more regular, almost like I used to go before LT lol, but I just didn't enjoy feeling backed up.

    So now I use FibreClear, its made by the same people who make LT so I know its ok to take. (Not fibresure - thats the one in supermarkets, may be the same, but didn't want to risk it lol)

    Anyway, if you stop going regularly, its better than taking a laxative that will make you explode (reading some of the posts on here lol)

    Eeek, I have just noticed the mistake I made in my last post, it was Fibreclear I meant to say not Fibresure.
    Had a few doses from my free sample now and it seem's to work for me too, I shall be buying a pack when I go for my next weigh in.
