Cutting plan

So I'm trying to build muscle as well as lose some fat. I know you guys might roll your eyes at the suggestion, but just tell me if my plan is flawed. So I start off with a week or two of purely gaining muscle. Lifting heavy weights, increasing my calories just enough to support muscle growth...

Do you count fiber in your macros, when taken as a supplement?

So I take metamucil a couple times a day to keep things regular on such a high protein diet. Do I need to log this? It's sugar free. But it's still carbs, right?
