Well, I have major gas, too, but not from Fiber One. Bananas, broccoli, stuff like that. Sometimes nothing at all triggers it.

I have no cure for you. I just fart a lot! If you figure something out that works, let me know.
DISCLAIMER: I expect to lose this weight over the next 6 months to 5 years. I'm not going to feel like a failure if it takes an entire month to lose 1 pound. I'm going to feel like a success when that happens! I may offer advice that I'm currently not taking myself. Feel free to call me on that!

I've heard people talk about having gassy side effects to eating lots of fiber.
I asked my doctor about that once and was reassured that when your body gets used to the higher fiber loads that particular side effect goes away Wink

Good luck with it though! Maybe provide people who live with you a gas mask until you reach a balance? Razz

I had the same problem with fiber1 bars! I didn't have a problem with any other fiber, and I also take metamucil. I had to stop eating these bars. It sucks because they taste so good!

Gas Ex Works So wonderful. I also found I'm lactose intolerant. Regular milk gioves me same problem. Switched to lactose free milk and drink lots of water with fiber products.

I think the problem is with the "extra" fiber in fiber one products and the like. Real fiber doesn't do this to me, just the fake-o extras. I gave them up for just this reason and starting focusing on adding more whole grains and fiberous veggies and beans (which create another musical problem,of course.) This was a double whammy goodie for me, because it got me away from yet another processed food and into more whole foods I can eat (and my kids can eat) for a lifetime.
