Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
I agree that you do need to increase your fiber intake and taking metamucin is a good option actually.
So yes I would encourage that you use metamucil as it will only benefit you and will not interact with the diet that you are on for weight loss.
Let me know if you have more questions.
