Hi all

I decided to try Movicol as been having horrid time with constipation for 116 days! Just wanted to let you know that it definitely took me out of ketosis (it has lemon flavouring) and to make matters worse, didn't work!

So it's back to Dulcolax for me as psyllium husks didn't work for me either.

Just wanted to let all know that it did affect ketosis, in me anyway!

Sorry to hear you're having problems Frejja. I found Dulcolax worked for me when clearing constipation (good old Dulcolax :)) but I just want to point out that Psyllium husks aren't for CLEARING constipation but for PREVENTING it. You have to address the *ahem* backlog before taking PH :)
Thanks Russiandoll. I did try the psyllium husks as a preventative but nothing seems to be able to make me return to normal habits so I am stuck with the dreaded stay-in-all-day Dulcolax routine! I just hope things improve when I start eating again (scary thought!!)

At least you haven't got long to go now Frejja - and then hopefully a bit of natural 'foodie' fibre in your diet will get things back to normal.

I only mentioned the PH thing in case any newbies to VLCDs thought they were for treating constipation :)
