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!

Research also supports your finding.
Fiber is your friend...and helps greatly with the feeling of fullness.

Hi All,

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?
