One safety wipe is all I need after shitting.
It really helps cut down on toilet paper usage.

Can someone homopill me on soluble insoluble fiber? I have no idea what I’m doing

How much fiber should I eat?

How do i eat a high fiber high protein diet while on a cut?
>>
>>45634891
insoluble = speeds up digestion, laxative, gets the bowels moving, typically nonfermentable (e.g. 0 calorie), typically found in green leafy shit. typically more stealthy but traps sulfates and although you fart less, whenever you fart the smell will be absolutely vicious

soluble = slows down bowel movements, basically turns into a big slimy glob in your intestines and helps sop up some cholesterol and slows digestion down for long lasting energy, some are fermentable though so they get broken down into short chain fatty acids in the intestine and thus have calories (though usually around 1-2kcal per g only). makes your shits huge and gives you lots of benign gas.

you need both to keep regular bowel movements. most sources from veggies are majority insoluble, most from grains and legumes are soluble. if you go lo-carb, try supplementing with psyllium husk though i like to have the occasional high fiber protein bar with resistant starch. otherwise eat a fuckton of legumes and spinach and you'll be fine.

eat as much brocoli/kale/cauliflower as you want. AND fish (not as much as you want)

>sop up some cholesterol
You realize cells are made of cholesterol? Actually fiber is for plants what cholesterol is for humans. Even the AHA knows dietary cholesterol isn't bad.
>you need both
Name one reason you need either
Resistant starch seems cool tho
>>
Data online for fiber is fucked, one place said cup of oatmeal was 1.5g, another said 4g

which is it?

don't be a fucking pedant, no one's trying to stop you from getting colon cancer at 40

Chris Kesser on JRE spoke about taking some potatoes and baking or steaming them. Then let them cool down and about half the carbs will be gone. He said that every time you heat them and cool them they lose more carbs.

What you are left with is Inulin. A non-digestible fiber that is extremely healthy for your gut bacteria. It is food for the good bacteria in your stomac. Some folks get Bob's Redmill Potato starch and mix that with water, it's a healthy option also.

>>45635547
resistant starch, same with rich, and green bananas

I already eat too much

Fiber is a fucking meme. Fuck shitting soft stuff. I shit bricks every four days and never bother with this literal crap.
>>
>>45635850
Nigga that's how you get hemorrhoids and start shitting red
>>
>>45634649
Drink more water with it unless you want anal fissures.
>>
>>45635903
Havent had that ever. I'd consider fiber if my poops went red though.
>>
>>45635850
Seriously stop unless you want to need surgery.
>>
>>45635915
Of course it doesn't happen immediately, it takes years for them to develop, but you won't like having to finger your ass every time you poop to ease the pain
>>
>>45635923
Yeah, yeah. At least i saved fucktons of money on TP.
>>45635957
>immediately
I'm 23 already.

>it's undigestible plant matter
Undigestible to you as an energy source but it has many uses in the body. It binds and helps excrete cholesterol, for example, and feeds and selects bacteria that promote a healthy colon
