Soluble vs. Insoluble Fiber. Who ya got?
Thanks but which is more important and what kind of split should I be going for to maximize productivity.
They serve different functions. Soluble fiber helps with general health, such as lowering risk for heart problems and blood sugar problems. It slows down the digestive system because the fiber is absorbed.
Insoluble fiber doesn't absorb. It is passed straight through the digestive system and pushes all of the crap (pun intended) in its way with it. That's the type of fiber that makes you crap a lot.
You should try and get an equal balance of fiber. The daily recommended value is 25 grams for women/38 for men IIRC
Thanks. This is what I was looking for. So it should be exactly equal? Most labels I read just say dietary fiber. How do you know which you're getting? Just by the bulk of your dumps?
I got not being old ftw.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Not true everyone needs to poop.
Then go to waffle house if you need to poop.
I want to poop in a healthy bulkful manner. Just GTFO if you don't have anything to offer.
I just offered you the greasiest dump advice ever. No gratitude nowadays.
It depends on what type of food you're eating. I consider soluble fiber "wet" fiber. This is because soluble fiber is found in foods like wet grains and fruits (oatmeal and apples, oranges, berries, etc.)
Your insoluble fiber is going to come from things like wheat and whole grains.
Ok, so let's take an orange, for example. The pulp that floats around in the maelstrom is insoluble and just there to help blast refuse out of one's colon, but the softer core of the fruit actually kind of lives in your intestines for awhile soaking stank up and working it's way slowly down the tract? Is that rght?
It's not the pulp that acts as insoluble fiber. It's the skin. The outer lining of most fruits contain insoluble fiber. I'm referencing the inner part of oranges, apples, bananas, etc. That is where you find your soluble fiber: in the fruit itself, not its cellulose casing.
Gotcha. So poop-pulp is just detritus that's along for the ride?
