    I am trying to lose weight but suffer from IBS and do not pass waste regularly. Sometimes it may be as much as 3 weeks without so much as a rabbit poo! I am weighing myself weekly but i need to know how this constipation affects weigh ins. Not only is it very dejecting to see no loss it is also too easy to explain away a gain!!! If anyone can advise on this it'd be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Samski, I would advise speaking to your GP before embarking on any weight loss plan/diet.

    My only suggestion based on my experience with lighterlife lite is that they strongly advise everyone to drink at least 2 litres of water a day to help prevent constipation.

    I imagine this would apply to anyone on a diet as the saying goes, 'the more you drink, the more you shrink!". However, like any other medical condition it is always wise to check with your doctor.
