    have been doing quite a few working solution days... just having a very small chicken breast with cucumber and lettiuce & sprinkle of bullion to add flavour... i havent been to the toilet in days and days properly and my stomach is sticking out!

    Want to know if i should be prepared to see a gain when i weigh myself due to this? i feel bigger than what i did five days ago :(

    You can take psyllium husk just before your shakes to stop this happening again, and it can make you feel a bit fuller too. Not if you already have a problem though, but its just pure fibre so very good and gentle on the bowels H&B sell it in capsules

    I have a big 2l bottle which I put a 2/3 teaspoons of soluble fibre into every day (with a funnel!) and then fill with water, and that gives me fibre for the day in the water that I have to drink anyway. I think it's called Benefibre, but it's really good & completely taste-free. It does work to keep you regular!

    In short, yes constipation can make you gain/retain weight. One reason could be that you are dehydrated, so have you been drinking the minimum 2.25L of water a day? Otherwise I would recommend Fybogel or any other sugar-free alternatives that will relieve the constipation yet keep you in ketosis.
