Keto seems to require diet suppliments

Something I didn't catch in my first span of reading about keto... constipation is a problem. After searching the forums it seems like people recommend taking magnesium and/or fiber supplements. Psyllium husk powder was a common recommendation.

A quick look at psyllium husks tells me it's about 50% fiber so... a little bit of that should go a long way. I imagine it tastes like sand... I'm going to go with fiber gummies from the grocery store. I'm not a savage.

I'm amazed that I'm still losing weight despite half my digestive system not working; but progress has slowed. The last two days have been fractions of a pound, but like... that's good. I don't think shedding 3 pounds in a day is a healthy.

7lbs total so far. I imagine the next time I drop a deuce I'll be down another pound or two. ... I'm pretty uncomfortable right now.
