  • I stick to only one a day. I eat a fairly high fiber diet, maybe that helps with the gas. I don't have that side effect too much. But more than one a day and I'm in the bathroom a lot.

  • the side effects lessen once your body gets used to the fiber? one bar and 12 hours later, I can expel enough gas to fuel my gas grill.

  • LOL. I think they do. I still get bad gas depending on what veggie I might be eating, but I can usually tolerate the Fiber One bars just fine.

  • if you like yogurt, try activia, i love it and it won't make you crazy gassy like fiber one bars. oh and it doesnt have that funky artificial sweetener after taste.
