Sorry, I'm off work today with the weather and have lots of questions. Sorry for posting so much. But this question is about fiber. I am on the spinach/sunflower diet. I am also not consuming gluten. so my diet pretty much consists of eggs or oatmeal for breakfast. Spinach, sunflower seeds, and carrots through out the day. Supper normally consists of LEAN red meat of some sort ( venison, lean beef burger, lean steak ) fish about once a week, and chicken about once a week. I also normally have either brown rice, redskin potato, or green beans with dinner. No bread or grains to speak of. I do have some rice flour that I will use at times, but I like to cook not really bake.
Now my question is that I am getting enough fiber? My stools are loose, but I understand that can be a side of the spinach.
Next question.... If I'm not getting enough fiber, do I have to be on liquid fiber like beneful? or will the fiber con tabs work also?
