    Ok trying to do this without TMI lol! I drink lots of water eating more than enough fruit and veg go the gym 3 times s week and swim, yet I always seem to suffer from extreme lack of number 2 visits :-D it only happens when I eat healthily and I only go if I take laxatives. I've been on the plan nearly a week and 'been' once with the aid of Laxatives. This always happens to me when I change my eating. Anybody got any suggestions of what I can do xxx Lisa

    I used to take laxatives but find it's a vicious circle and have stopped unless really really necessary. My best tip is drinking hot water or herbal tea. I was in agony my first week but soon settled down and only have the occasional problem now. I have also ordered some aloe Vera and peppermint tablets as they are supposed to help the tummy !

    Laxatives are the WORST things you can use! Would you consider a colonic? you need a few sessions but it would definitely sort you out, my FIL got it done and he swears by it, gets rid of stuff that has been in there for years and clears out all the toxins etc

    I would be willing to try anything. When I don't 'diet' my relationship with the toilet is fine and regular. I know laxatives are not my friends but they are the last resort else I simply wouldn't go :$ I'm beginning to wonder if I have UBS even though I haven't got many of the symptoms xxx Lisa

    how about trying to eat scan bran as your HEb ?? I find when I at have 5 a day then i am regular as clockwork , if I dont then i dont go very often !!
    I would recommend a colonic to be honest , our bodies were not designed to have anything going 'in' that end , you are best to clear any blockage with a gentle laxative ( movicol is one of the best as it is very gentle , and also very very effective at clearing blockages .)
    Then you need to try and find something , like scan bran , or physillium husks ( holland and barrat sell them ) or fibre sure, benefibre , supplements that will keep you regular without effecting the way your bowel works
