How to supplement your lack of fiber on the keto diet
The keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that’s thought to have many health benefits. But because many fiber-rich foods are also carb-heavy, getting enough fiber on the keto diet can be a challenge, making regularity a problem. Keto constipation is a phenomenon that plagues many keto dieters – the lack of fiber in the diet can leave you with hard, stubborn stool, and a bloated gut.(1)
Adding a fiber supplement like Metamucil is a great way to add more fiber to your diet to keep you regular* so you can see the benefits of your keto diet without drawback of constipation.
Both the Sugar-Free and Premium Blend types of Metamucil are sugar and gluten-free, so they are keto friendly.
Talk to your healthcare provider before starting any new diet.
