Hiya, I had the same problem a few days ago :eek:. Took 2 sennacot and they really did the trick. Not taking anymore chances, so I have some Cambridge Fibre now too. Not had probs since. Good luck! :)

Not really supposed to, but I had awful problems to start with, then started to eat half a pot of Activia a day and that works wonders and doesnt kick me out of ketosis

Hi, i suffered really badly with this and read previous posts which recommended Movical, i bought some from the supermarket pharmacy and my goodness they work a treat :D (thee only time in my life me thinks when i can compliment on a public forum, bowel stuff!!). I thought senakot would bring me out of ketosis but have since read that is equally as effective.

I got very bunged up before and took ducolax which is foul!

I now start my day with a strong coffee mixed with a bit of banana or vanilla shake a splenda tablet and two teaspoons of physillium husks, followed by a cup of herbal tea. The coffee stimulates the bowel and the husks swell to form a gel, that not only makes me fill full but also has meant I have Had 'a movement' everyday for 3 weeks. I also make sure that at least 2 of my drinks during the day have husks in. I even quite like them in the soups as it reallythickens them. The husks also help reduce cholesterol and balance blood sugars, so that can't be a bad thing

Last time I didn't go for nearly 2 weeks and felt really bad.

they are a fibre supplement and stool softener which helps to counteract the effects of this diet, I have been using psyllium husk capsules and they work a treat
