Hi Candy,

We have to minimise carbs as much as possible to gain the maximum benefits of ketosis so almost 10g of extra carbs a day is going to take its toll!

Why don't you try physillium (sp) husks!?
You can get capsules from Holland and Barrett and they will get you moving (so to speak) with no carbs. You have to take them with quite a bit of water too so that will boost up your water count! Killing two birds with one stone!

If you drink plenty of water you shouldn't have too much trouble going to the toilet.
If you do become constipated then dulcolax pico perles are fab and you can take between 1-4 depending on how 'bunged up' you are :)
Just DONT go for the regular dulcolax.....there are horror stories about those on here!!

Hi everyone.

Keeping regular seems to be a side effect to VLCD. I posted a question about this a few days ago and it was suggested I try a product called fibre clear. However, this has 9.5g of carbs and 0.5g sugar in each sachet. Wondering if this will effect ketois? Anyone got any good suggestions on this?

The fibre clear I used throughout has 3 calories a serving. Sold by lipotrim and on line. Never stopped me losing weight and avoided constipation. You just need I find what suits you.
Dulvolax pearls are gentle as BB says.
