Konjac noodles: 20 calories for 200 grams of food (mostly fiber)

I had 2 of these yesterday and fell below my calorie targets. They go to your gut and hang around for a long time. Apparently if you don't drink enough fluids this can even be dangerous. I ate them plain. Anyone else use these? What do you put on them?

I went back to bulking again, and now I've gained a bit more fat than I was expecting, but I...
