Can anyone advise me on the best source of INSOLUBLE fibre? Possibly requiring gluten free?
Let me explain.
I am eating lots of soluble fibre atm, so my poop is way too squishy, some days more like "the squits". (my keyboard won't remind me how to spel dia-wotsit and I am not willing to embarrass myself with a rather shoddy attempt) so I need advice on good reliable sources of the insoluble stuff to firm up my #2's…
I took up oatcakes instead of standard bread for lunches, but it turns out I appear to be allergic to something in them. (severe "squits" and going up to 8 times a day, sometimes watery, other times even squishier than the norm)
Can one randomly develop a gluten allergy?
Incidentally, (warning, going off on a tangent for a moment) why is gluten-free food so fecking expensive?! It's a dietary requirement for medical reasons, not just some celebrity-induced latest fad!?
Who do I need to talk to about being tested for a possible gluten allergy?
PS. For Those of you who don't know. Soluble fibre helps make the poops soft and squishy. Insoluble fibre goes through and absorbs the fluid content, making them harder.
A healthy balance of the two provides with a decent poop that you hardly have to wipe afterwards
Whereas too much soluble and you're in a soft squishy and sometimes endless mess, too much insoluble fibre and you poop rock hard bullets, looking like rabbit poop.
