    My fibre arrived today and it says not to exceed two teaspoons a day but do you take two a day or one a day usually? Do you have one spoon in a soup or do you split it up and have half a spoon in each soup/shake?
    Advice please :)

    Hey AlexIce,

    I was advised to have one teaspoon a day (in a shake/soup) although I think I have to up my intake..it's not really enough :( lol

    Hi guys - i am having BIG issues in that department at the moment... this morning was the first time since 5 days.... i just had to take a fibre supplement last night (double dose so .8 carbs and 14 kals) made from wheat dextrin and is supposed to be "all natural" with no sugar or sweetners - it just dissapears into my glass... might see the chemist to see what else i can do as it is def not healthy! I am worried thought that this extra little bit of cals and carb will hinder my SS'ing???? Any suggestions are very welcome!! thanks Kat

    oh jeez. eek.
    i had a similar experience (but not to that extent)... it was the most horrific pain i've ever encountered. I cried. Like a baby. On the loo. I'm a grown woman ffs.

    Even my OH was concerned... he checked on my about half a dozen times... i was in there for ages.

    Not funny.

    oh dear - very sorry to hear that Mince - sounds like a trip to the doctors for some other remedy might be a good idea.
    Let's hope we both get answers soon.

    I resorted to Ducolax... two did the trick... and then i bought that Fibre 87... i really didn't take it every day tho...

    I am much better now thankfully. But i'm not SS (or SS+).

    It was nasty when it happened tho.
