I recently started eating this All Bran cereal for breakfast as way to start getting more fiber in my diet. I am trying to gain right now but I have noticed I am gaining maybe too much fat. My stomach has been sticking out lately, and I was like ‘whoa, I’ve got to eat cleaner and start doing cardio’.
But then I read somewhere that psyllium, which is in the cereal, holds onto water. Is this true of all fiber. Could it be that fiber is making me bloated? And I mean real bloated.
THe other day I weighed myself at 186lbs. holy shit!! I was 176-178 only maybe two weeks ago. Then on Tuesday I weighed 180. Then last night I was 186! WTF! I know its all water, but that seems like a lot. Plus I don’t like how later in the day I walk around feeling like my dad or santa clause. But somedays, I don’t feel or look bloated. So I started thinking maybe its only when I eat the cereal?
Any comments, or thoughts?
