Angry Lesson Learned: No Fiber One Bars for Breakfast!

OMG!!!

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT EAT FIBER ONE BARS FOR BREAKFAST! I had two and Ive been paying for it all darn day!

Im at work so trying to hold "things" in has been miserable....and my stomache has been grumbling and growling all day

My advice: Dont do it!!! Wait till you have some food in your gut already before eating these!

Fiber One bars give me those same symptoms no matter what else I've eaten during the day. I can do the Gnu Flavor & Fiber, but the Fiber One kills me...

I made the mistake of letting my 3 year old grandson eat one. Lesson learned!!

The thing about fiber one bars is they are not kidding when they say they have a lot of fiber. 2 bars for breakfast is 66% of the recommended amount of daily fiber. If you go from a low fiber diet to a high fiber diet, yes you will pay. I have found gradually increasing my fiber intake has really helped, and I can now eat a high fiber breakfast without a problem.

I have them for breakfast all the time but I've been eating a high fiber diet for years. I think it's all related to what your guts is used to.

There is a reason they are nicknamed 'Farty Bars' around here. Even the kids have learned not to eat more than one. My 5 year old once ate two of them. Yowza!

Actually, that's why the commercial for their yogurt is so funny. They have the older woman from Desperate Housewives eating a bunch of 'samples' in the store and then they all laugh about how much fiber she just ate and the woman is clueless.

I had one for breakfast too. Good thing I don't work in an office! LOL!

Could be the type of fiber.

My diet includes a lot of insoluble fiber which is what Fiber One uses - it's considered a gut-fiber. Soluble fiber is the type in things like oatmeal - this type of fiber is good for lowering cholestrol.

I left a box at my exes. He had no food and he ate the whole box. He messaged me later saying he was on the toilet for hours.

I eat them a lot for breakfast and have had no problems...my best friend can't handle them so I guess it depends on the person

I've never had the Fiber One bars, but I know that a serving of Fiber One cereal and a strong cup of coffee works better than an entire box of Ex-Lax!

Heh, I posted about these things a few weeks ago. They give me what my son used to call "gurgly bottom". I eat one some mornings for a mid-morning snack, but just ONE. And if I eat them two mornings in a row, stand back! My poor gut will start rumbling and bubbling like there is a volcano about to blow! I really like them and I can handle them every other morning, but not every day. And for me, I don't think it's a matter of building up to it because I've been trying to get used to these for a couple of months now and I've found that I can only do them in small doses.

One of my boys can eat them just fine, though--they don't bother him at all.

ROFL...I had a "binger" last week on Kashi cereal--four bowls to be exact..I went to sleep afterwards..the next morning I woke up and almost couldn't get my kids out the door--I was way too busy running back and forth to the bathroom!

I had eaten it on an empty stomach too--I had gone all day on only egg whites and coffee..then decided the cereal sounded really good..NOT!

Funny, since I had my gallbladder out when I was 18 there are a lot of foods that have this effect on me, but strangely, not fiber one bars. I frequently have one for breakfast or lunch (never get breaks at work) and have not this reaction. I guess I do have a decent amount of fiber in my daily diet though.
