    Dude, it felt great, honestly. I felt a lot better after that. Fiber isn't really absorbed by the body, it just kinda bulks up (you have to take a lot of water with it or it will actually constipate you), and acts like a sponge - it slowly crawls through your guts and collects old junk along the way.

    Dammit.. WHERE'S NBJMD WHEN WE NEED HER? ;D or PowerMD? Whatever happened to him?

    Dr. Belle! back me up here! :p

    Hey there,
    You are right about the fiber. It is not absorbed and literally gives your colon something to move around, taking anything that is stuck against the walls with it. However, taking 40 or 50 fiber tabs is more like loading your colon. Again, if you drink enough water, you will not end up with concrete in your colon. You really don't have to even take the fiber tabs, you can chew on your cocoa mat and with enough water and saliva, you can have your "massive gassive".

    The long "sausage" was your colon lining sloughing off with that fiber load. The slough usually happens a few million cells at a time but you got all of them in one swoop. Nothing serious unless you see blood streaking. In that case, get thee to a colo-rectal surgeon or gastroenterologist (read medical doctor with long black tube to inspect entire colon).

    njbmd :D

    Methinks I'll avoid taking the 40-50 capsules to avoid the need to have that procedure performed on me, even if the chance I'll need the procedure is minor. :eek:

    Thanks for all the info, njbmd!

    You ought to see the gleam in her eye whenever she thinks about how close I'm getting to age 50 and all of the recommended procedures for men that age. :hair:

    Well, I'm still not adding any fiber to my fasting plan.

    It's almost time for bed, those who are in on this with me... Remember not to have any breakfast in the morning...

    I know I'm gonna have to write myself a note to stop me from just automatically walking to the kitchen and making some Lucky Charms...

    I used to do a chinese tai he cleanse every year. You basically take like 6 caps and eat certain high fiber foods and avoid red meat, beer, red wine, ...etc.
    Well I got so used to the diet part that all I do now is eat healthier foods and I very rarely have problems at all.

    prime ...I think you've discovered boudin dude! :thumbsup:;D

    The Pop-Tarts in the corner of the room are wispering sultry temptations in their dark language. "High fructose," they say. "Partially hydrogenated," they tease.

    It's going to be a long day. :banghead:

    Well, CB, how are you doing so far? :)

    Well, It's past lunch-time, and I'm still fine. After the initial hunger from skipping breakfast passed, I don't feel hungry anymore. I've had about 4 liters of water so far.

    On a related note, I just peed, and when I was done, the water was still crystal clear. I consitered not even flushing, but then I did anyway...

    It's probably advisable to take a multi-vitamin, as long as it doesn't contain much iron (that will constipate you).

    And then you'll want to take more fiber. ;)

    I'm afraid I wussed out. Made it to 4:30 (20 hours without food). It's not that I coudln't handle being hungry, but I had a hell of a day at work, and I didn't want to be irritated and hungry. Best of luck in your remaining hours, CB :thumbsup:
