...but if these VLCD companies know that constipation is a common side effect, why do they not put more fibre into the packs?

I know CD sells fibre powder separately (for about £8 a tub!!!!) but surely it would be simpler to just put a little extra into the food packs themselves?

Maybe it's just a money spinner for them, but as far as I can tell Exante don't sell any fibre supplement.

Yes, I'm grumpy because once again I have had to crack open the constipation relief tablets :mad: At least next week is add a meal week and I can have some veggies :eek:
