    Has anyone else got constipated on SW??

    I am and it's v annoying! This NEVER happens to me, even when I had a crap diet and never ate fruit or veg!! But now I'm eating fruit, salad and drinking even more water than before, plus lots of high fibre foods... I am! I don't understand it.

    JestersTear Cute, but psycho!

    I did go through a stage of it, but it seemed to sort itself out.

    have a word with your consultant and make sure you're having enough fibre x

    Similar problem but it sorted itself out. Someone recommended peppermint tea - and I'm doing the same as that seemed to really help.

    Or a curry :D

    I get this.....quite alot! I bought slimatee from Holland & Barrett which is basically a herbal tea which helps you move, but not severely. My weigh in is on a Monday so I have one on a Saturday night before bed (if my plans allow) and so Sunday I can move, if you know what I mean. You shoudl try them. They help me soooo much :)

    I was going to start a post about just this subject! It's my second day on EE and I am absolutely VILE with wind!!!!! :eek: I know it's just the sudden change of eating loads more veg, but to answer your question! Yes , it's not exactly constipation because it's soft (sorry!), but my whole system seems to slow up for at least a week. (even with all bran!) I have been known to resort to senokot tabs now and again, but the pack in the bathroom has been there for over a year so I'm not a "user"! Rhubarb works best on me.

    Judimac that sounds exactly like me!! Tis very embarrassing! Are these normal healthy digestive habits? My average diet before used to be so much worse than my diet now so I don't understand it! So much for Gillian McKeith eh :eek: will definitely look for those tea things.
