Bloating and Constipation
Quick history on my weightlifting experience. So i was 210 then lost 155 then jumped up to 170 when i started lifting weights. I've been hovering at 170-175 for awhile now and go back and forth between cutting and bulking when i feel like im gettign too fat. Which seemed to be alot quicker than others. Well now I've noticed that my puffyness and fatness could have been a result of the chronic bloating and constipation i have. Perhaps this has been going on for some time.
When i noticed it and put the pieces together i decided to do a colon cleanse and have been supplementing with fiber ever since. Initially it was amazingly successful, now the supplementation isn't netting the results it once did. Does anyone have an idea of what could cause this?

How much fiber are you consuming? Probably the #1 cause.

OP, does this mean you are back to experiencing bloating and constipation? Bloating only? Does the bloating result in looking like you're pregnant at times?
May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:

If OP were to take in more fiber that would cause more bloating

Excessive fiber causes gi distress , blockage and massive bloat
More fiber is not better most
People bulking get a lot through excessive kcals

Well based on my fitness pal it was 18-20g average and I take fiber choice and a pro biotic so it's around 25-28 after supplementation. My gas has smaller terrible lately and I'm scared for everyone else if I take more fiber.

Wow 35-40, I thought I wasn't doing that bad. I'll up it and see how it goes. Thanks, I hope this alleviates the problem. It's been like this for a long time. Just thought it was normal. Would you recommend a water pill to get some of the excess water out or would that be counterproductive?

I find it very hard to NOT meet fiber minimum's
Eat a few servings of veggies a day
a piece or two of fruit
Toss in some potaoes, oats, pasta etc, and your easily there.

Great, Normally if i was home i could. But the barracks i live in doesnt have storage for food like that. i have to resort to going to the galley or buying ready made stuff so i have to supplement in some way.
