Fiber w/ nightly protein...
06-15-2003 11:36 AM
dunno if anyones ever used benefiber, but i wont recommend it. i ve been taking it for how long now, and twice the dosage. im still all backed up. id at least think it would help a little bit, but damn nada.
ill switch back to metamucil, and if that doesnt work then im gonna hit up some chia seeds.
btw, i heard that if u mix a lot of fiber with something wether it be a shake, corn, whatever, ur body cant use those calories. is this true?
thats why its been so hard lately with drinkin this stuff, cuz id eat a cow, then drink a fiber supp, then puke up my fiber supp.
but if i can mix it all together, then it would be probably a lot better.

The fiber you add to your shake will slow the absorstion of protein....good idea to use it at bedtime or in a MRP when you want it to last. I use phsyllium husks or metamucil. You can get the same (large container) of fiber (Target brand) instead of Metamucil for about $4.00. The night time shake I usually use is 1 cup milk.....2 tbs natty PB or a couple of handfuls of walnuts....1 tbs fiber....1 scoop whey.....skim milk powder can also be used....1-2 tbs flax when I have it.

There's something called Inulin, looks very promising is pretty much soluble fiber, www.proteincustomizer.com has it.
So, in summary:
- Use inulin as you would a fiber; calculate it in your total fiber intake for the day.
- Because inulin slows down (and possibly enhances) digestion, use inulin in any protein shake where you are not concerned about fast absorption.
- 2-3g/shake is a good upper limit; don't go much higher than this per shake.
- It is a thickening agent so it can be used in this manner to replace gums and such that are typically used.
