    When I was on Lipotrim I had to use Dulcolax twice a week due to the lack of fibres. For those who haven't heard of Lipotrim, this is a total food replacement diet (you only have 3 shakes a day). I was also using psyllium husk (natural fibres).
    I doubt we can use ph as there are 4 carbs in a tbsp but is there anything else we can usse as I don't want to go back to Dulcolax twice a week. Any suggestions?

    I don't know whether it's allowed or tolerated or anything but I do take a good glug of Cod Liver Oil every day, I mix it in with my dinner which tends to be fish anyway! Some people can't stand it but it's natural, hasn't stopped me losing weight and seems to have done the trick for me...

    Hmm, might give the cod liver oil a try... I love dry fried eggs with runny yolks but they don't do the trick for me I'm afraid :(

    This is What i do:
    Vit C every day
    Col cleanse x 3 daily
    Drink ICE cold water upon waking
    Stomach crunches before shower!
    Rhubarb on PV days
    Wheat bran
    ....and lots of water throughout the day. I also have the occasional hot water with a squeeze of lemon in - I know it's not allowed but it's only a little and really helps!
    Good luck!!! :)

    I've got those colon cleanse pills so might give those a try too. Will let you all know when I've been to the toilet.

    Maybe some runny food like soups would help?Chicken soup, butternut squash soup, beef and vegetable soup (argh, I'm making myself hungry!) Oatbran definitely works for me and lots of walking. Sorry I can't be of more help. Ooh, just forgot - liquorice or aniseed tea is meant to work.

    The only thing I don't like about Dulcolax is the cramps you get just before you have to rush to the toilet. I remember having taken Dulcolax in the morning and by evening time, I had to rush out of my bodybalance class.... :(
