Experiment with Soluable and Insoluable fiber, thoughts?
For example, how could this combo (carb restriction [with reason], and a fiber combo) reduce water, under a calorie controlled diet and fitness plan, and aide a person to lose the last bit that seems rather impossible to lose?
Seems to be a fairly feasible and reasonable approach once you analyze what carb restriction is "capable" of doing, and the general properties of soluble and insoluble fiber, and the diuretic properties of each. Sure some of its water, but under a solid diet and fitness plan, one could lose this water, lose fat tissue, and personally receive better and improved results.
Thus learning that water increase/fluctuations (and hunger cravings) can be controlled just by diet-----manipulation.
I have been doing some experimentation with myself the passed two weeks along with my carb cyclic diet. It is difficult to get about 35-40 grams of fiber (while keeping the other nutrients up, and within calorie restrictions) in hard foods, so to combat this I have been taking a fiber supplement (for about 12 grams approx of "soluble" fiber) in my diet. The reason for the "personal" experiment is to see if the fiber along with carb restriction aides in being "dual combo" natural diuretic, and how in certain combinations how powerful this could be.
The results have been truly impressive actually. I did experience some gas the first week, but this has tapered off. Additionally, my food cravings went down (I feel full more often than normal), and with no modification in my current caloric/carb intake or meal frequency, my skin is as tight as leather (I need to drink more water than I generally do, and adjust because of the increase in fiber). It has brought about even more definition albeit a little dry for my size. I feel so damn tight and lean. I am going to stay on this track, and see how my body adjusts to the dietary change. Before I was only getting about 12 grams of fiber per day, and had concentrated more on the micro and macro nutrients, so going from approx 12 to 40 is a big change (though done in two phases).
Thoughts? I have performed reasonable diet experiments before (this is one reason I have been successful). Diet is the Boss. End.
I believe its rather interesting.

Sounds interesting. I have been thinking about taking a fiber supplement lately because it doesn't seem to me like I am getting enough through diet.

I play a lot with low carbs but have never given much thought to fiber.
Can you explain to us a bit more about soluble and insoluble fiber. I assume all fiber supplements are soluble?
