30 Day Get Picky Fiber Choice Challenge Update

I have been taking my Fiber Choice fruity bites now for about 30 days, and wanted to check in with yall to tell you how I am doing and my thoughts on the product after using it for a month.

First of all, let’s discuss taste. I stated this in my last post, and 30 days later it is still true: These fruity bites taste REALLY good! I actually remember to take them most of the time and WANT to take them because it’s like popping candy in my mouth every day!

I was concerned about taking too much fiber too soon, so I started with just one a day then upped my intake to two (which is one serving) and on days when I felt like I needed a little more I would take a second serving.

Being this late in pregnancy, I know a lot of ladies really suffer from constipation. In my first trimester, I had serious issues with that, so when I heard it comes back late in the game I was NOT looking forward to it. I am happy to report I have had VERY minimal problems with constipation, and the ones I have had were really my own doing. (Either forgetting my fruity bites or eating way too much bread, etc.) Some fiber pills have given me issues with bloating and a really full airy feeling, but I have not had that at all!

I felt very in control of my body and digestion all month, and was able to indulge a bit on things that would normally not sit well with me (especially being pregnant!) and I was ok in the end. I definitely plan to make the fruity bites part of my daily routine from here on out to continue to keep me regular and feeling good, and highly recommend them to you if you are looking for a little extra fiber in your diet.

I will be posting one more time about Fiber Choice soon, and it will involve a CHALLENGE that you can join in and see what Fiber Choice is all about yourself, so stay tuned!

You can get more info on fruity bites on their website, and be sure to check out the Fiber Choice Facebook page.

Fiber Choice 30-Day Get Picky Challenge

When I was contacted by Fiber Choice about joining in their 30-Day Get Picky Challenge, I was immediately intrigued because I have never been able to find a fiber regimen that I was crazy about. They always seem to swing from one side of the pendulum to the other, and I was looking for some middle ground that wouldn’t upset my stomach, but would still be beneficial. I was cleared by my OBGYN to join in the challenge, and was so excited to receive my product in the mail. I will be switching to the Fiber Choice products for 30 days and at the end of the challenge will evaluate my thoughts. So far after a few days, I will say I really enjoy taking my supplement! These babies taste good! It’s like eating candy so I don’t mind (and never forget) to take them.

On and off in my pregnancy I have struggled with constipation, so I am curious to see what happens in these 30 days. You can take up to 3 servings a day, but I started at one as to not overwhelm my system with too much fiber at once, and will be working up to taking more.

I chose to try the Fiber Choice Fruity Bites for the challenge. These are chewable fiber supplements in gummy form with natural flavor and colors. Not to mention, they taste great! The supplements Fiber Choice makes contain 3 grams of fiber per serving (two gummies in my case). The natural fiber helps support your immune system and digestive tract, and can be taken every day.

A lot of Americans do not get enough fiber in their diets. (Recommended intake is 25 to 35 grams). Choosing to take a supplement is something that is important to me, especially since I have been very picky about my food choices since being pregnant.

All of the Fiber Choice products contain a prebiotic fiber called inulin, which is a 100% natural fiber found in fruits and veggies). These prebiotics help the good bacteria (probiotics) grow and support our well being. Fiber choice products are also gluten free, and are available at most mass merchandisers, drug stores, and grocery stores.

I will be posting about the challenge at the midway point and at the end, and will let you know how I am feeling. So far so good! Be sure to follow Fiber Choice on Twitter for news and updates!

QOTD: Do you take a fiber supplement? Do you think you get enough fiber in your diet?
