As I posted separately, I am new here and just started using the beginner’s formula with a few tweaks. Since I live in the U.S. and have Amazon Prime, it took all of five minutes to order everything (USD$178) and some items arrived in two days.
The fiber took the slow boat being non-Prime eligible, and just got here today. The container is tiny, and there is only a week’s worth of fiber in there. While I ordered a larger bag of some of the other bulk ingredients such as maltodetrin and whey, there is apparently no larger option for the ON Fitness Fiber. FYI while waiting for this to arrive I have been taking two fiber pills (methylcellulose), one each morning and one each evening. That seems to help keep what little I have in my guts moving along nicely.
While my lower GI has a clean bill of health at the present time, Celiac and Crohn’s run in my family and I do have diverticulosis (i.e. I am ok as long as I get enough fiber). Some people may be able to do this without fiber but I absolutely have to keep traffic flowing or I can end up with serious problems.
What are other people doing for fiber? Pills? Powder in the Soylent? Is there a better option? What do you guys recommend for me: keep taking the pills, or find a different (more economical) powder?
