This is my first time posting on a forum, hope it's enlightening. I've had a very long journey with digestive issues and I've finally reached a place where I am making progress and no longer suffer daily. I've managed to understand how much fiber is truly beneficial to your health, nutrition and digestive system. For now, I try to get about 20 grams of fiber in a day through food or Metamucil. I've seen that men are supposed to get 20-35 grams per day. Right now, I am use my stools are very short in both size and sometimes volume. I've been told this is a sign of constipation although when I increase my fiber intake the stool turns very soft when I am looking for a longer healthy stool. Can anyone shed some light on their fiber experiences with me?
Thank you so much!
