    That sounds great but in practice all it did for me was bung me up, where I use to go very day now it is not and quiet stressfull. Once you inroduce fibre in oats, bran, flaxseed etc all is okay. Any suggestions?


      This is a very common problem when starting out low carb and I found it a problem myself for the first 2-3 weeks. Flaxseeds/linseed, chia seeds should replace the fibre of oats and bran. Increasing vegetable intake considerably (particularly green leafy vege) should make a difference. Drinking plenty of water is also very important when on low carb eating plans. I Hope this helps. However if you just can’t get the desired results then include some oatbran at breakfast but keep the remainder of your day low carb. Hope this helps.
