    if we are not getting any fibre... does that affect going to the toilet? Sorry to ask but I wondered if this would be a problem.

    I start my packs wed and have my first meeting tues night so maybe they'll cover it then but any advice would be appreciated.

    thanks

    hi betty, i have had no problems in that department and now going into my fourth week. The water flavorings do have soluble fibre in so i suppose that will help, just been looking at some ingredients and the cranberry bar has fibre in and so do the packs. Some people do experience some problems and there are some products out there that can be used. Most importantly drink loads of water!! :tear_drop:

    Hi Betty - I struggle with this but to be honest I did even when I was eating. I take dulcolax or movicol but not regularly ...... am hoping that my body will one day get used!

    The water flavourings have fibre in them - so get some and use them. I never had any problems until I forgot to buy the flavourings one week.....won't do that again!

    firstly ensure you are drinking at least 4litres of water a day.. Are you? This makes a huge difference.

    If you are and you haven't tried the water flavourings, that is the next step.

    Remember you won't go as frequently or produce as much as you would while eating.

    Next is to try something like the psylium husks.

    If you still don't have any luck, THEN try ducolax or something.

    no the flavourings have aspartame in them and no fat

    Water flavourings are fine - they won't affect your weightloss and they give you that little bit of extra fibre that some of us need!
