Fiber !!

So let me ask, does anyone have a problem when they eat too much fiber?  Maybe this is one of those TMI post but let me say yesterday I had approx. 25 g of fiber and late at night I was in alot of stomach pain.  Like the amount of pain where you have to sit very still.  It almost felt like a cramp or you know when you get a charlie horse and your foot gets stuck in that stiff position.  Well this is how I felt, but it was my stomach.  It was awful so today I am not having that much fiber. 

Yesterday I ate 2 Healthy life wheat bread with peanut butter for breakfast, then lunch I had a salami and cheese wrap on a wheat tortilla, and dinner I had rueben wraps on two tortillas.  Maybe it was all those breads and tortillas and no veggies?  Mmmm I am not sure.  Just wondered if anyone ever experienced this?  Maybe as my body gets use to the amount of fiber, I will adjust.  I did drink approx. 64 oz of water so I know that shouldn't have been the problem.  Anyways sorry if its too much info.  But I had to ask....

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

  1. I've never really had a problem with fiber, but maybe your body just needs time to adjust like you said. It sounds like you need to increase your fiber more slowly. Good luck with that and let us know how things are going.
