    Generally they say it's 8-12 hours before they take affect. So it depends what time you took them last night. Personally I've found they take around 24 hours to work for me - that's if they work at all which they often don't!

    Hi natasha1974, I did exactly the same last night! Was feeling the same as you so thought I'd take something to get things moving - took a senekot max strength last night around 9pm and still nothing today! :-( I'm not convinced they work as I've taken them before and not really noticed them working.

    ive tried senokot before, and i dont think they actually work.

    make sure you have plenty of water to push those scan bran through or you may get a bit clogged up!

    BRILLIANT. So I am not theonly one who finds themselves getting oober bloated on this eating plan.

    I had two nights last week where I thought I was gonna pop. Needed to let off so much but can't bring myself to do a minute long parp infront of my fella! I didn't really find anything to help, think I might have just let off in my sleep and woke up wind free!

    for the first few weeks i think everyone gets bloating due to the body getting used to a new diet it does wear off but i get the odd few days every now and again dont think i drink enough water. Anyways i had jacket spud and beans for lunch and then a brisk walk home from work an hour ago am feeling lots better now ;)

    I was getting concerned about my lack if movement I was considering going to my GP so it's not just me then! Is it due to the limited amount of fibre (or am I getting it wrong and fibre bungs you up) in the diet plan that causes this? I had a SW curry and it took 4 days for anything to happen which made me feel sluggish and bloated
