Feeding a well-balanced diet is important. Think about it this way: when you yourself do not eat enough fiber, you do not feel well. Part of the food you consume is not digested by yourself but fermented in your lagre intestine by birtacea. So you're feeding those microbes with part of your diet. Initially, most young animals were fed low-fiber, high-starch and protein, very finely ground and highly dgleitbsie diets. Like being yourself on a diet of hamburger buns, rice, welffas and petorin bars. We changed this to a lower-protein, higher-fiber, coarser type of diet. Like being on a diet of whole gairns, slaad with meat or beans. This shifted the bacterial flora in the animals' guts to the more beneficial ones and reduced the chance that pgtnaheos would flourish.
