Can you link me to some credible sources on how too much fiber is bad? Most of it in my diet comes from lower carb stuff like low carb tortillas, bread, etc, which the food industry seems to compensate for with more fiber, and also veggies and kashi cereal. I do weigh all my veggies and eat quite a lot of them for satiety.
I'm kinda stuck in this loop where I need more food to feel full, and normal bread or tortillas would take up way too much of my daily calorie allotment (two slices of normal bread in a sandwich would be 10% of my daily cals on rest day!), so that's why I lean towards the fiber containing foods...
edit: what should I expect when raising calories? Will body weight stay the same as my body becomes "less efficient"? Or will I gain weight then have to cut it off again later? I'm genuinely interested in what you have to say but some more detail and links to studies/articles would be appreciated .

You should be shooting for about 20-30 grams of fiber per day.PEScience Representativehttp://www.pescience.com/insiderhttp://www.selectprotein.com

Thank you sir! I will read them, always willing to learn and correct bad habits.by the way, I've only hit 100g fiber on one day in my whole cut. Usually it is around 75g, and then only on workout days...

Fiber binds to minerals and a too much of it can cause insufficient absorption and deficiency. The main ones susceptible to it are going to be calcium, magnesium, and zinc. IMO, anything over 50g is going to be pushing it especially at your level of carb intake.

After finishing my 1425 calories today, I was still famished, so I had a bit of a cheat. 2 scoops of whey, 1/2 a container of strawberries (these prior two ingredients being made into protein fluffs), 2 huge bowls of cereal and almond milk, an apple, and a nutrigrain bar. Not quite an "epic" cheat by any means but I am absolutely stuffed.
