    Is anyone else having trouble with constipation? I'm 7 weeks into the diet now and have noticed i'm going less and less. It's been 4 days now and it's starting to get uncomfortable. I have my WI tomorrow as well :cry:
    How can i sort it out? I know fibre but it's quite limiting on how much each day, maybe that is part of the problem. How about any free foods?

    Sorry guys but help is needed

    This has been my problem too.

    I think that drinking loads of water is supposed to help it along the way. I'm going to give that a go tonight and see if it helps cos i have WI as well tomorrow night.

    I have had this problem too, but as I am most likely eating more fibre than before SW, I'm guessing that it's that that is causing it. I was told more fluids.

    Not been too bad this week, but last week it was a whole week between 'visits' :whistle: I was worried about WI, but lost 3.5lbs :D

    I supose, the less goes in the less can come out. I've got the opposite at the mo. Never been so much. But it's the 1st time in years that I'm eating properly and healthily. Just a shame I'm not losing any weight.

    I have been kind of irregular all my life and it was worse when I started SW.
    Senokot is really good and I found having Activia on a daily basis is also a big boost.
    However, as long as you don't feel uncomfortable I think your body will tell you when it's time to go.
    A doctor told me years ago that anything from going a couple of times a day to once every four or five days is totally normal.

    I had this as well but I started drinking more water and it helped a lot. Also eating more beans helps a lot too (not baked beans but things like cooked barlotti, cannellini etc) I made a dish using brown beans and ate it nearly everyday for a week and I went every single day, sometimes twice! That week I lost 3.5lbs too! I think I'm going to cook me another pot :D

    I also find i'm more bound up when I eat bread so stay away as much as I can. Again drink plenty of water to flush everything through.

    Having a pear almost every day also helps...also they say plums are also good for this.

    Oh dear !!!

    Fruit, water, veg, scan brans, senna as a last resort. Scans should do it if taken every day.

    Good luck

    I drink lots of water and eat loads of fruit and veggies so I am usually OK, but if I do have a problem I take a couple of 'Dulco-ease' capsules - and they soon sort out the problem - (only to be used occassionly though)......
