30 Day Get Picky Fiber Choice Challenge Update

I have been taking my Fiber Choice fruity bites now for about 30 days, and wanted to check in with yall to tell you how I am doing and my thoughts on the product after using it for a month.

First of all, let’s discuss taste. I stated this in my last post, and 30 days later it is still true: These fruity bites taste REALLY good! I actually remember to take them most of the time and WANT to take them because it’s like popping candy in my mouth every day!

I was concerned about taking too much fiber too soon, so I started with just one a day then upped my intake to two (which is one serving) and on days when I felt like I needed a little more I would take a second serving.

Being this late in pregnancy, I know a lot of ladies really suffer from constipation. In my first trimester, I had serious issues with that, so when I heard it comes back late in the game I was NOT looking forward to it. I am happy to report I have had VERY minimal problems with constipation, and the ones I have had were really my own doing. (Either forgetting my fruity bites or eating way too much bread, etc.) Some fiber pills have given me issues with bloating and a really full airy feeling, but I have not had that at all!

I felt very in control of my body and digestion all month, and was able to indulge a bit on things that would normally not sit well with me (especially being pregnant!) and I was ok in the end. I definitely plan to make the fruity bites part of my daily routine from here on out to continue to keep me regular and feeling good, and highly recommend them to you if you are looking for a little extra fiber in your diet.

I will be posting one more time about Fiber Choice soon, and it will involve a CHALLENGE that you can join in and see what Fiber Choice is all about yourself, so stay tuned!

You can get more info on fruity bites on their website, and be sure to check out the Fiber Choice Facebook page.

Disclosure: I was provided product and compensation for this challenge, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
