    Sorry to raise this question, but does anyone else get constipated when on the plan?

    I'm eating more fruit and veg than ever, drinking loads of fluids and still struggling.

    Anyone else?

    Any ideas of how to get things moving?

    Me and my white marble friend hardly speak when I'm on SW and before we used to "converse" every day. Someone told me about red tea last time I did SW and that helped. Much nicer than the alternatives too!
