    I've only been back on SW for 2 days and ALREADY i'm constipated!! I'm gonna to try and drink more water, do some excercise in the morning, and maybe have an extra HexB and count it as syns...but blimey! When i first started in april i remember having the same problem, why's it SO common with the SW diet!?

    I was just going to say about the fruit & veg. It only seems to be green where you have loads of carbs & no veggies that people get this problem!

    Im having wayyy more roughage than I have been eating, I know how to get rid of the constipation and how to deal with it, but why is it so common on the SW diet?! Argh!

    It depends.... If i have too much pasta i tend to get this.. Im not sure bloating and swelling could blamed on an alpen bar.. As i said before.. Lots of water!! Usually Potatoe makes me go!! Large jacket lots of salad with loads of beans should clear you out!! X also make sure you are having your B's they help xx

    Rice is known to constipate you, it is the first food we give to children when they have had diarrhoea. For me, Quorn bungs me up every time I eat it regardless of fruit, veg and fluid intake xx
