Is severe constipation a normal side effect of skinny fiber?

Julie k. asked this question Sep 16th, 2013 2:44 am

I have been taking skinny fiber for about 6 weeks. Super, super constipated. Is anyone else having this problem? Lots of bloating as well. I drink tons of water. Feeling quite discouraged.

Hey! How much water is "tons"? You need to be drinking half of your bodyweight in ounces. So I you weigh 200 lbs, you need to drink 100 oz of water (= 13 cups of water).

If in doubt, never drink LESS, always drink MORE.

I think some have had a problem with this. From what I have read it is the difference between soluble and unsoluble fiber. I still take pysillium husks like what is in Metamucil and it helps me. I have always had probs with constipation though and SF has not made it any worse or better. Join my group if you want:
