Psyllium husk powder
Basically soluble fiber - moves things along in the GI tract and makes for the best poops ever. Learned about it from reddit somewhere and it is awesome. We refer to the period before we were taking it every day to 'the dark times'.

u/chimeraguy · 16 pointsr/keto

Holy crap, what a coincidence that this thread popped up. Keto has been fucking my stomach up for over a month. I have had the most horrible runny sticky industrial adhesive shit. 3 days ago I just couldn't take it anymore so I bought a 24oz bag of pure Psyllium Husk Powder.


OMG, everything is better now. I have actual turds again instead of just sticky soft serve icecream.

I'll be taking this stuff everyday from now on. This should be part of everybody's basic kit when they start Keto.

u/Guyler-R · 11 pointsr/amazonreviews

u/nick_diesel · 7 pointsr/Fitness

It all depends on your tastes. I use apple juice for when I'm only taking fiber (psyllium husks) because it masks the "earth" flavor very well. If I'm replacing a meal, I simply mix it with my meal replacement and drink it all together. I use a larger 24ish oz shaker bottle filled to the brim with milk, almond milk, meal replacement and fiber. It's works wonders when I'm pressed for time in the morning. It won't last as long as something solid but it does the trick.

Psyllium husks can be found on amazon (now foods). It's primarily use is as a fiber, and a byproduct of that is fullness.

Yohimbe is commonly found in weight loss supplements, men's "virility" products, or ways to stay awake. I use it instead of caffeine because caffeine makes me jittery and anxious. Yohimbe does all the good for me and no bad. (also, anecdotal but... It works for bedroom performance pretty well).
Yohimbe "bark" contains yohimbine, the actual chemical. Don't go getting the HCL and put a scoop in your drink, because you'll most likely end up in the hospital. Yohimbine is usually in 5/10mg doses. Tiny amounts. Kills my appetite and hypes me up. Probably my most favored "drug".

Edit: psyllium husks and yohimbe have different purposes, but could be used together or at different times to help reduce hunger. I'm unsure if the fiber would or could affect absorption of yohimbe. Don't take fiber in pill form because you'd end up taking like 20 pills. Just use the powdered type (http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002RWUNYM/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_a_it?qid=1456953026&sr=8-2&keywords=now+foods+psyllium+husk&pi=SY200_QL40) and you can probably pick up yohimbe at most drug stores in the vitamin area. If not you can amazon/Google that too.

Psyllium Powder. 15g/day.

u/AlfamaN10 · 5 pointsr/Supplements

I recommend taking a soluble fiber, such as Psyllium Husk or Acaica Senegal!

They expand to ~10x their dry-volume in water (e.g. - in your stomach) & they slow digestion.

Effect: More full + full longer (win + win)

Dosage: I take ~5-10g/Fiber with a meal (this depends on the size of the meal and how much water I'm drinking - bigger meal = more fiber), usually 2x daily. Works great for me and my wife.

Tips: Drink extra water when you take soluble fibers; they absorb a lot of water. I'd recommend ~2oz water/1g of fiber.

u/Zurevu · 4 pointsr/Supplements

I have NOW psyllium husk powder.


It doesn't mix with water as well as Metamucil but it's drinkable.

Metamucil makes plain psyllium husk too but I can't find it online for some strange reason.

u/NeptunesCar · 4 pointsr/reactiongifs

Alternatively you can try taking Psyllium Husk before you go to bed. I use 3 heaping tablespoons mixed with orange juice (recently switched to lemon juice and water to cut down on the sugar.) I used to have perpetual constipation and mud-shit despite my substantial fiber intake. Now, my shits have satisfying bulk and there's very little wiping involved. The mud-shit is encased in the mucilage formed by the Psyllium Husk; the Husk is not digested and has a purely mechanical action in the body. It is perfectly safe and can also help reduce cholesterol levels.

Such. Satisfying. Shits.

Edit: Use plenty of water/juice when mixing your Husk. Mix with a little liquid initially to form a sludge at the bottom of your glass, then mix with the rest of the liquid. This prevents caking/dust. Good technique with hot chocolate as well. Staying well hydrated throughout the day helps immensely.

u/spectre323 · 4 pointsr/Fitness

Best supplement I added was for fiber. Psyllium Husk is amazing. It takes 3-4 days before it starts taking effect but man best dumps ever.

u/fastertoday · 3 pointsr/soylent

I've been making "soft-serve" soylent for a while.
I discovered that adding ground psyllium husk significantly improves the texture.

u/dustinyo_ · 3 pointsr/leangains

I would also add some fiber for the sake of your bowels but really everyone I know who's tried to do liquid only gives up after a couple of weeks. It sounds really convenient, but you'll be surprised how much you miss real food. All-liquid meals never seem to make you feel full either, even when you're hitting all your macros.

u/SpaceStationEarth · 3 pointsr/keto

I'll third this comment. Whole Psyllium Husk makes you nice and regular...almost life changing and I'm not exaggerating. It's also good to take with water about 30 minutes before a meal to fill you up before you eat. Though a word of warning, it swells in water...great for filling up your stomach but if you let it sit it will swell up before you drink it and then you'll have to eat it like cream of wheat.

I recommend working your way up from 1 tablespoons to 2 then to 3...if you increase the dose too fast, your body biome won't acclimate properly and you'll get loose shits and instead of nice logs. The cheapest I've found is the Now Whole Psyllium Husk on Amazon.

I also use the Now Probiotic.. I'm now very regular with a good BM or two everyday and no more IBS or hemorrhoids.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/ibs

I've had similar symptoms. You might find that psyllium husk helps firm things up. It's sometimes marketed as a laxative but as someone whose main IBS symptom is diarrhea I found it made my poo a lot more solid, and it can even make me tend toward constipation if I take too much. I take 1-2 tablespoons a day, mixed into oatmeal or soy yogurt - it tastes better that way than with water.

As the other person says, loperamide is also helpful. I usually take 1-2 pills a few hours before I need to go anywhere important. If I take them every day it can be a bit too much. Getting the right dosage seems to be very individual though.

u/ReallyJeff · 2 pointsr/shittingadvice

Four 500 mg caps is only 2 grams! Get some bulk psyllium (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002RWUNYM) and take at least a 9 gram Tablespoon once a day.

u/UnlikeSpace3858 · 2 pointsr/keto

You need to take psyllium husk powder daily. Try a Tbsp blended in a low carb protein powder shake, or mix it with a packet of Natural Calm magnesium citrate before bed.

u/Pimplicate · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes
  • 150 g blanched almond flour (1.5 cup )
  • 6 tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tsp salt (I use .5 tsp of salt, this is WAY too much)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 120 ml boiling water
  • oil for frying (about 1-2 tbsp)



    I've tried multiple recipes for tortilla wraps, and this held up the best. I make a batch every week or so and use it to make turkey wraps for lunch every day.
u/_ilovetofu_ · 2 pointsr/soylent

Psyllium Husk is also great for added fiber.

u/PROPHYLACTIC_APPLE · 2 pointsr/sex

Along with all the other great advice, what's your diet like? Maybe try adding a little bit of fiber, specifically psyllium husk:



It'll make you more regular and make things stick little less.

u/IkeKim · 2 pointsr/omad

Hey, thanks for that! The only thing that I can give you in return is that my Doc told me to mix some fiber w/ my Orange Juice at the end of my OMAD dinner and forget about bloating and cholesterol. Enjoy yourself.

u/PrinceAli132 · 2 pointsr/fitmeals

I don't have experience with it but look into Psyllium Husk Powder. I found one on amazon.

1 tablespoon (9g) = 30 calories = 8g carbs with 7g of fiber.

I've incorporated fiber via beans, lentils and low carb tortillas (90 cals with 15g of fiber).

u/dimmak · 1 pointr/AskReddit

The first 15 seconds to Colon-Blo is pretty accessible and the song itself does a fantastic job of promoting fiber and recommending that one avoid dismemberment.

Here all the lyrics to help sing along:
>Sticking to the walls of your insides
A corrosive enzyme lives and breathes
only to be excreted
with help of fiber and balanced diet

>Tilting equilibrium
makes way for nausea
Rectal muscle gives way
flooding down your leg

>Enhanced nutrition
sliding right through the body
No time to digest
Colon bursts out the chest

>Sickening stench
of methane and bile
Colon blows like a rubber hose
the sweet odor invades your nose

>Trying to grab your gasmask
sometimes an uneasy task
when your pubis is dismembered from your abdomen

u/PcIqArzl · 1 pointr/Fitness

Add this shit to your diet before you go to bed and you will have no problem getting to the gym to shit before you lift.

u/Malatesta · 1 pointr/leangains

Brand/type does matter. I've had the whole husk kind--the one where it's kind of grainy and that thickens a little (absorbs water), but the NOW Foods powder one definitely act differently being a finely milled powder like GlycoMaize. Check the reviews and you'll see people talking about slamming 'em down fast otherwise they get too thick to drink.

u/Billmarius · 1 pointr/kratom

Have you tried taking Psyllium Husk before you go to bed? I use 1 heaping tablespoon mixed with orange juice. I used to have perpetual constipation and mud-shit despite my substantial fiber intake. Now, my shits have satisfying bulk and there's very little wiping involved. The mud-shit is encased in the mucilage formed by the Psyllium Husk; the Husk is not digested and has a purely mechanical action in the body. It is perfectly safe and can also help reduce cholesterol levels.

When I say a lot of liquid I mean a lot, like, find the biggest glass you own (maybe plastic to compensate for the vigorous stirring without cracking glass) put the heaping tablespoon in the bottom and stir vigorously as you pour.

After a while I was going through too much orange juice, so I switched to adding a glug of straight lemon juice to the bottom with my Husk and pour water whilst stirring vigorously. It basically tastes like pulpy lemon water which is not the best flavor but if you give it a go and see what kind of awesome shits you're capable of you'll commit to this unpleasant moment in your evening and it'll become part of your life. The days that I plow through half a pizza, for example, and don't drink my Husk I revert to shit that looks like it was extruded from the Soft Serve machine.

Now I go to my local health food store and they have it in one of those plastic containers that I can weigh out my own bag. It's cheaper and saves on shipping.

u/blurfocus · 1 pointr/keto

Looks like you have thoroughly researched keto.

Avoiding heavily processed foods is generally a good thing. Of course, time and budget may limit some people's ability to do it.

Losing 10+ pounds has a huge positive influence on your health. This positive influence may outweigh the negative influence of a few extra nitrates. As you near your goal weight, it may make more sense to focus more on avoiding processed foods.

I've lost 45+ pounds in six months even though dairy is a fairly big part of my diet. I eat heavy cream, cheese, homemade yogurt (low-sugar, high-fat), and butter. If you limit your dairy intake to dairy from grass-fed cows, you'll even increase your intake of omega 3 fatty acids which is a good thing.

With dairy, let your diet progress guide your intake. As the saying goes, your mileage may vary.

Add potassium, magnesium, and sodium to your list of supplements to keep your electrolytes balanced. Also, take a B12 / folic acid supplement to keep levels of homocysteine under control. Fish oil is more effective per gram than flaxseed oil. Read this link for details http://www.health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/Why-not-flaxseed-oil.shtml

1 gram of net carb to get 3 grams of fiber sounds like too much. For example, psyllium powder has 7 grams of fiber for every gram of carbs. http://www.amazon.com/Now-Foods-Psyllium-Powder-24-Ounce/dp/B002RWUNYM

Also, magnesium supplements will help to keep you regular. I don't supplement with extra fiber and seem to do okay. Again, different people may have different results.

Raw vegetables are better. As for cooking, steaming is probably better than boiling since fewer vitamins and minerals would be leached out. However, heat is the thing that denatures water-soluable vitamins. This link has some useful information. It claims that the fat-soluable vitamins aren't damaged as much by heat - http://healthyonraw.com/does-cooking-destroy-nutrients-in-vegetables/

Nutrition labels can be misleading because any carbs / serving that are less than 1 gram are rounded down to 0. The calories per serving can help you to work backward and discover the amount of calories that may be due to carbs. Protein has 4 calories per gram and fat is 9 calories per gram (MCT oil is 7 calories per gram). Take the calories per serving and subtract 4P and 9F to find the calories due to carbs. Divide the result by 4 to find the grams of carbs. Of course, protein and fat grams are rounded as well which will affect the result.

Some people report no problems with artificial sweeteners. Some can't tolerate them at all. Some are okay with some, but not others. Try to see what works for you. Best is to avoid them altogether if you can manage to do so.

Good plan to avoid exceptions. They will derail you if you let them.

u/gobol · 1 pointr/Fitness


I usually do 15g twice a day. Usually every 12 hours. 6:30 AM when I eat breakfast, keeps me full until I eat again later. Then again around 6:30 PM after my last meal. I never really get super hungry on huge deficits during a cut.

u/Back-in-the-Saddle · 1 pointr/Fitness

Hi, I'm late to the party on this thread so I hope someone gets a chance to read this. Cravings have always been a big problem for me so I do a lot of things. In general I try eat a near ketosis diet (/r/keto for more info) staying away from fast absorbing carbs in general keeps my appetite down. Next biggest thing I do is I buy bulk Psyllium fiber and gluccomannan and put them in a nice easy open container and spoon out a teaspoon with meals and a tablespoon with very low fiber meals (it's mixed in water and then you have to drink it really fast). This helps me from over eating. I also do lots of things like drink water when I'm hungry and leave raw whole walnuts and almonds in jars on my counter so I'm tempted to eat a few throughout the day. Another thing that helps with the cravings is baby carrots a little more expensive by I don't have to get a knife and cut carrots up which makes me eat more. I also throw a few carrots on the side of my plate with every meal. In general as well I try to eat tons of healthy fats through out the day. I like avocado, tuna, I'll have some coconut oil in my protein shakes as well. I've found if I skip meals I then over eat on the next meal which causes insulin spikes which set me up for a three day roller coaster of overeating so I don't skip meals! Hope this helps!

Edit: I also supplement with cod liver oil which I think seems to help!

u/ryeguy · 1 pointr/Fitness

Here's what I got. There are other sized bags (10lbs even) on there too, as well as powder and capsules.

u/unforgiven60 · 1 pointr/keto

Yes it happened to me. I say "happened" because I have found a solution.

A little background first. I have had "watery stool" pretty much all of keto (~18 months) and before I started Keto when I was eating badly. I don't know if it is due to some form of IBS (probably) or whatever, but it wasn't so bad that I just had to get it checked out.

I started IF this year and I noticed that after every meal (only 2 meals) I had pure water coming out of my ass almost. Like clockwork. I do eat veggies some and am not doing a full zero carb diet or anything. But I did notice that I wasn't getting much soluble fiber (veggies seem to be mostly insoluble which doesn't slow down the works).

Anyway, I was tired of this pattern messing up my plans of having to actually go places and do work after lunch (but I wanted to keep fasting). Anyway, did some reading and decided to try a fiber supplement first. I had some old fiber I had in my desk from early in Keto. I had trouble mixing it and I didn't like the taste, so I gave up on it early on, plus it didn't help. Anyway, I still didn't like it and it barely helped.

Long story short, I came upon Psyllium husk powder link and tried it. I've been on it about a month now maybe.

After some experimenting with dose timing, I started taking one TBSP mixed in about 32oz of water WITH or a few mins BEFORE my meal. I also mix it with crystal light so it doesn't taste like I'm eating mud. With the crystal light, it's honestly no issue to drink it. DRINK IT FAST THOUGH! If you wait too long, this stuff will turn into a sludge and it becomes much harder to drink.

It may take some time for your body to adjust to this, in terms of changing your bowel, but it has for me. I stopped having to go in the afternoon after lunch. I pretty much go one time after dinner now. The stool is more firm but still not hard. I would describe it as "fluffy". Much more pleasant experience.

Someone else said "more fat" but I think it's the fat the caused my problem. This stuff, when taken with a meal, seems to soak up some of that stuff in your stomach, intestine and keeps the liquid from flowing down so fast. After you've been on it a while, it finally starts to work thru your full digestive system and regulates everything.

I haven't noticed that many side effects. The only ones I've seen are I've started farting again (whether this is bad, only others can say) and once in a while, I will get some stomach rumbling as things settle after a meal or approaching my daily movement. Nothing painful, but I can usually tell when things are ready to move. I don't really see this as a negative either.

Anyway, maybe you should check it out. I read that you should get 25-35g of fiber a day, and especially on keto, I was getting nowhere near that. Especially soluble since it comes mostly from fruit. With 2 doses of this a day, I can get pretty close to the goal.

I'm not guaranteeing results, it just worked for me. For about $20 (counting buying the crystal light) it's probably worth trying. Also something to consider, there is some buzz around gut bacteria and things like that. While I don't know all that much about it, some of the beneficial bacteria that feeds off carbs likely dies out when on keto. This stuff can rekindle some of that bacteria and theoretically re-balance that system. Probably should do some of your own research if you want to know more. I'm no expert.

EDIT it also helps you feel quite full after you drink it, so it can help you possibly cut down on the calories in your meals and make hitting macros more attainable.

Hey, this is the recipe I started with!

The flax is definitely terrible. I considered it undrinkable. I replaced it with this and found it much more manageable.

More recently I reworked the recipe to eliminate the flax altogether, replacing it with psyllium husk powder, and my DIY is now silky smooth.
