One of my FaceBook friends posted this link……..FiberOneBarsMakeMeFart. I clicked on the link and was so relieved to read the stories. I now know that I am not the only one who is really stinky after eating FiberOne bars. I love the peanut butter and oatmeal ones. I, actually, eat lots of fiber and have been drinking a glass of (generic) Metamucil for about 20 years. I started drinking the fiber drink on the advice of a friend who is, also, a doctor. He told me that the fiber would keep cholesterol down among other health benefits. I am pleased to report that I have never had a cholesterol problem for the past 20 years. And, I eat a lot of red meat! The last two times that I have had my cholesterol checked, the doctors (two different ones) told me that my total numbers were high but that my good cholesterol was so high that I had nothing to worry about. Both physicians asked me what my secret was and I told them that I drink a glass of water with fiber every night. Try it!
Now back to the FiberBars…..
Here are two excerpts from FiberOneBarsMakeMeFart…..
06/05/2008 07:42:17 PM Fiber will make you fart because your body is not used to that much of it, try eating whole grains for a few months, the gas will stop because you will become used to the fiber in your diet. its like drinking coke for the first time, you will feel very gassy. but once u drink it for awhile, the gas will ease.
06/07/2008 01:18:34 AM Listen dude, it is NOT the fiber.. The dietary fiber (while at 9g) is not nearly as much fiber as an average person has in a day. I could fast for 10 days straight; eat one Fiber One bar, and fart for hours. One could eat two gallons of Spaghetti, Two cups of Lentils, a gallon of Peas, a sack of Blueberries, a cart full of Bran flakes, a truck load of Oatmeal, two loaves of Rye bread, a bushel of Artichokes, and a barrel of oil full of corn and Turnip greens and not have as much gas as I do after one of these. There is something evil about them. They really defy all logic and all knowledge of nutritional information when it comes to fiber and farts. I don’t care if you are a trainer, you are coming to some knee-jerk irrational assumptions about this hell-forged snack bar.
So, if you eat FiberOne bars and are wondering why you find yourself watching television alone or it seems that your friends and family are avoiding you, check out that site! And, if you are not a consumer of fiber bars, you will still get a good belly laugh at some of the stories!
And because I am a 12 year old boy inside, I can’t resist posting a fart video…..
On another note: Right now, I am suppose to be at a dermatologist appointment but I woke up not feeling well. But, lately, I find myself not really wanting to go anywhere. Then, I spend a large part of the day berated myself for staying home so much. I’m wondering……if I am happy staying home all alone in my Boogerwoods house, is there something wrong with me. Whaddya think? Just wondering……….
