    I had such an painful experience after being constipated and having to use supposatires last time that I'm wary of trying it again. I was drinking 3-4 litres of water a day so it couldn't have been lack of fluids.

    How can I stop this happening again? Don't want to get into taking laxatives all the time. Even the Fibre89 didn't help (which I must admit I did only take for a week).

    I did eat a frozen tetra every night, could it have been those?

    What to do, I could so do with losing a couple of stone and just can't stick to Weight watchers. :(

    Any advice for me please, I'd really appreciate it.

    Hiya

    How about trying psyllium husks, I know alot of people have them in their soups every day or make porridge out of them and they are supposed to be really effective.

    first cause of constipation is lack of sufficient water in the diet ... you say you had 3-4 litres so it can't have been down to that ... but perhaps an additional 500ml to 1litre would have made all the difference. As Porgeous says, also try incorporating psyllium husks into the diet as a PREVENTATIVE measure - so ensure you take it every day. It works for me. Some don't find it so helpful but maybe they are the people who have a little more trouble in that department at the best of times even when not on the diet? don't know, just a thought.

    hope you do well with what ever you do

    I can only echo the psyllium husks, wonderful things!
    You do need to drink extra with the tetras though but 4 litres should cover that...
    Good luck with what ever you chose.

    good luck to you, I concur with the other's about the psyllium husks, or alternatively you could try going on 880 (or 790) whatever it is these days LOL.. That would incorporate some vegetables in your diet, which should help cos it'll bulk you up

    I had a pretty bad toilet experience last week too. Since then I have been taking the fibresure capsules. I take 2 every morning and it's keeping me regular.

    Thanks girls, I was going to get some Fibre89, but would the psyllium husks (where do i get these??) or Fibresure be better.

    I so want to shift at least a stone, but am terrified of going through that pain again.

    Seeing CDC tomorrow, so will be starting on Thursday! :)

    Healthspan Psyllium Husks Digestive Fibre - 300g tub for the husks .... great to make porridge, thicken soups. Or Holland and Barrat do Coloncare in powder or capsules but are more expensive ... but not as "gritty" as husks from Healthspan.

    Agree about 790/810 meals with plenty of cauliflower/broccoli/sprouts/cabbage.

    i buy my psyllium husks from ebay and can't believe how amazing they are, i had real problems before and i was adding fibre powder to every shake and everything.

    But the husks (i have mine as porridge) are an absolute godsend.
