out of choices (sigh)


Silver Member
well, i am having little choice but to move over to the SW diet (the only other diet i know works for me).
The thing is i really love CD but im at the risk of ending up in hospital with constipation.
Have been thinking about moving over for a month or so just to get my body 'functioning' properly.
Went to the docs this morning and she told me i am putting my health at risk with the unresolved constipation.
i take maximum dose fibre suppliment(sometimes more than recommended dose TBH), plus have started taking laxatives just about every night. in the last 3 weeks ive 'been' to the toilet twice :eek: and even though the last time (last friday) was looser than i expected (sorry, TMI), it wasnt much and i wasnt left with the relief u expect.
Now my tummy is hard and bloated and very tender, also getting pains in my lower back which doctor said will be as a direct result of the pressure :cry:.
so, i will be weighing in on thursday as usual and then moving onto SW for a while.
I plan to start off on low carb red days for a while to reduce the risk of carb overload and horrible water weight but i do plan on coming back to CD again (i have a long journey ahead yet and want to finish the journey on CD) and i hope i will be welcome here in the meantime.

sorry to hear all the trouble your having good luck with SW and let us all know how your getting on hope to see you back soon xxx
Oh Cheryl I am so sorry you are suffering like this, I think you are making a very wise decision to move to something else, and give your body a break for a while. I was on the verge of giving in for toilet reasons myself but luckily I responded to the fiber supplements.

I hope that you are feeling better soon hun (((hugs)))
