I thought this was a joke but I've looked it up and it's an actual thing used in food products and basically exactly what I'm interested in; indigestible fibre. I bet the breads that incorporate it are pretty expensive but I'll look into making my own. Not sure where I could get food-grade cellulose/tree-flour though!

Again...

I'm not sure what your thinking here is.

There are plenty of low calorie foods that can give you proper nutrition while also staving off hunger.

If eating sawdust was a good idea, nutritionists and diet doctors would already be marketing it.

If you go that route, you might want to buy a box of Depends....

I've found suggestions that the wood pulp is processed to obtain "microcrystalline cellulose" which is available at £5/Kg if you buy 5 Kg but I'll keep looking.

5kg PURE Microcrystalline cellulose | eBay

It's not like I'm planning to sustain myself on nothing but damn sawdust. It's a mere ingredient in a bread requiring conventional flour which also requires additional ingredients to make a sandwich which is just one meal in day. There even companies adding it their products to increase fibre and reduce calorie content. I don't want to argue about this any more. You do you, I'll do me.

Or you could just buy store bought shredded cheese. They use cellulose to keep it from clumping. The store brands use the most cellulose.

Just because someone will sell you something doesn't mean it's a good idea to eat it.

You did come here for advice, yes? But you don't want to hear it. It sounds like you just want validation. Sorry but sawdust is not human food.

Why not try foods that burn more calories for your body to utilize than they contain to fill up on if a proper, healthy meal is not enough food? The list includes celery, grapefruit, lettuce and most leafy greens, watermelon, clear, fat free broth, cucumbers and pickles made without sugar, clear, calorie free beverages like black tea or coffee, water.

Seems better than eating sawdust.
