Good morning!

Does anyone know if you can take Slimatee on cd. It is a herbal tea from Holland and Barrett which makes you go to the toilet. I usually use it when I'm calorie counting so have some in the cupboard... I haven't been to the loo since I started cd (on day 5 now) and feel that is quite a long time to go...

Hi Happyland,

Not sure on the tea but you can take Psyllium husks, also available at H&B - you can get them in a tablet/capsule form and they re basically fibre that helps to push everything through (sorry!)

This is what is in it;

Frangula Bark
Senna Leaf
Peppermint Leaf
Hibiscus Flowers
Goldenrod Herb
Mate Tea

I have no doubt this will work, but not sure if it will knock me out of ketosis?
Hi Happyland

I take slimates, that is the only way I feel a bit relax, and not discomfort, I have been taken it twice sine I have been on cd, that is been about a week, But the only thing is it makes you more thristy,

I am still in ketosis, But i made the tea very weak, just incase it kick me out of ketosis, but I have not taken it every day, But would like to know as well can I taken every day.


Dulcolax are not for the faint of heart!

Take them only if you haven't "been" for a long time because they are killers. If you haven't taken them before, start with one.

Lots of water can have a laxitive effect, especially with the water flavourings.
I suppose I may be worried for nothing as I really don't feel the need to go at all... I am drinking about 7 litres of water every day so that isn't a problem. I might try the water flavourings.. Do you have to wait till week 3 to have them?
I just keep a pint of water besides me all the time and as soon as I'm finished it, I go and fill it up.. Speaking of which Im all empty again!

might invest in one of those caravan loos to keep beside me too :D
