Everything I have read on fiber states emphatically that it doesn't affect blood sugar. I have been on a strict under 20 grams per day eating plan for 4 months. Those carbs consist of broccoli, cauliflower and green beans. I wanted to experiment with adding more fiber and variety into my diet, so I tried flax meal in the form of minute bread (flax meal, egg and baking powder) and shirataki noodles. I tried different days eating one or the other and both times it knocked me out of ketosis and I gained presumably water weight. I didn't eat anything else those days that was different than my normal plan and did exchange the vegie carbs for the fiber. Not wanting to take the first reactions as truth, I tried a couple more different days of adding in flax or the noodles and had the same reaction.
If fiber is not supposed to affect blood sugar, am I abnormal in this reaction or am I missing something? Have I made myself even more carb sensitive than I was before?
