I track my fibre intake - I generally need around 42g daily and some times need over 50g (when I am on certain medications.) My Dietitian even prescribed Benefiber to help me reach it because otherwise I suffer terribly :-(
I certainly notice that the days I don't reach it, I am hungrier!
I've started tracking my fibre intake using SP and making an effort to reach 25-35g per day. I've noticed that it has a massive impact on my hunger and I eat far less calories when I meet my goal. I also tend to eat less the following day too.
What do you track with SP apart from carbs/protein/fat? Do you aim to meet it and does it have an impact on your overall diet?
