I know, I know. It goes against everything we've ever been told. Big shocker! Here ya go.

u/allryuken · 3 pointsr/keto

I don't think they do..

I personally don't eat any fiber.

Like rootyb said, most likely an irritation. It might also depend on your fat intake, too much too quickly and it will cause this problem, and if you go way too far you'll throw up (you know how I know that?! lol)

You might want to check out fiber menace, I know /r/keto and /r/paleo say fiber is OK but I am not so sure, but this book is by no means perfect, read the reviews for reasons why.

This is a good start...

I went complete carnivore on Jan 2nd, 0 fiber or vegetables since then and have 0 issues with bathroom habits, bloating, etc. Fiber is not necessary for a healthy, normal functioning digestive system.

There was a Russian doctor who made the case the fiber in our diets isn't the panacea it's been made out to be and wrote a book. I haven't read it, but have read some of his online comments and he makes some good points. I think the fiber = good thing simply got popularized without much scrutiny as these things often do and the media took off with it. My diet is high in fats (butter especially), animal fats in particular, eggs, fish, meat and veggies with some carbs and almost no sugars. My weight is proportional to my height with a BMI of 24.4.

Relevant book: fiber menace.

It is a dollar as kindle version.

I do not know about conspiracy.

But the book is solid and lists the studies.

I guess this keeps going.

In my field, I always like to check the opposing view of what I've been taught and what is standard dogma.

I work for a company that makes nutritional supplements. Fish oils are huge. So when I come across something like this I dive right in with an open mind. Same with fiber supplements and so this becomes very interesting. Linus Pauling is derided as a loon? I guess I'll read Linus Pauling then, he won two Nobel prizes back when they meant something and his work is in text books for chemistry
and biology. (Take your vitamin C, btw - weak collagen is aging and cardiovascular disease.)

I'm a contrarian and that's how I find the truth. This also helps by Christian faith. It's just how I operate.

So when I say gravity could be wrong (and I include incomplete in that) as an example, it means that I'm open to it being wrong because our understanding very well could be incorrect or incomplete. And this is what smart physics people (like Tesla) believe as well. How else does a field advance to the truth? It gets wobbly standing on the shoulders of mere men.

And you're still doing the atheist quoting thing.
Yeah, well* YOU SAID:

You can quote me until you're blue in the face. Mankind's understanding of how things interact and fall and attract is evolving. Maybe gravity is wrong, maybe it's a secondary force to something more fundamental, maybe the virtues are holding everything up and pushing them around. I don't know. But if my bible said it was the virtues, then the virtues it is.

You could watch whatever you want on YouTube, it's a good medium for ideas and things. Try this, but make sure you have adblock, my new favourite:

All of the necessary vitamins are available in animal products and in fact more bioavailable in them.

I am familiar with Brock's diet/story. The (LIBERAL! jk, i consider myself liberal or at least progressive) media may tell us that Brock got diverticulitis because he didn't eat his veggies. They also tell us that we should be eating 7 servings of grains a day and 5 servings of fruit. I was diagnosed with intestinal issues when I was on a diet high in veggies. Since I cut them out no problems.

Vegetables are not necessary for a healthy diet. They can be an effective antidote/medicine if you are eating other stuff that you shouldn't be eating. And fiber is only necessary if you are constantly plugging yourself up with constipating foods.

" You need fiber to stay healthy."

Unlikely. Fiber doesn't have any essential amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, or minerals. Dirt has more nutrients.
