Does anyone recommend a fiber supplement that does not have an artificial sweetener in it? I think I spent 15 minutes staring at the fiber shelf the last time I was at the my grocery store! Other than tablets (I prefer not to take one more pill!) only one had no artificial sweeteners in it... metamucil wafers, which I'm currently using.
I'm generally happy with them except that one serving has 120 calories, which seems like a lot.
Before this, I used benefiber wafers which didn't work nearly as well, and I think the artificial sweetener contributed to my problems. And this is just a hunch, but I suspect that the orange coloring in the benefiber wafers may have tended to make my "D" look more reddish. Maybe I wasn't bleeding, at least as much as I feared I was, after all.
Have you found a fiber that works and you like?
