Is anyone dealing with constipation on the diet? If anyone has a cure that we can use without breaking the diet, what is it?.

I am so sorry to start off on the blog like this! I started July 13th and have lost 14.6 pounds. The entire time I have been plagued with constipation. The gas I understand. I used to be a veggie, so I am well aquainted with gas!.

My husband, Roger, and I are on Nutrisystem together. He has no problem with constipation, but I have become the poster child!.

I drink 12 8 oz glasses of water a day and a cup of coffee each morning. Please, don't tell me to drink more. I just can't!.

And, my last thought, you know when you see the people on tv talking about just following the diet and the weight came right off, and you (I) said, "right, that can't be true"...... I am just following the diet and the weight is falling off. AND my body is gathering up the skin too. HOW!?! I have never worked so little to loose so much!..

Add more fiber. Remember your not eating the volume of fatty food you used to eat. At least I'm not. So I get stopped up..

I have a scoop of Metamucil every afternoon. 20 cals, so it's a free food. It works by the next morning...

I am not having problems with constipation but I am very bloated and have such a full feeling it's like I could not get another thing in me. I just started the diet on August 4, 2010.....any suggestions..

BTW I am drinking about 8 glasses of water daily (more than I ever drank before)...

I understand that adding magnesium helps with the constipation, and that caraway seeds help with bloating and gas. You might want to do a search of these threads for both topics to get more info. Good luck on your quest to lose the weight!..

I had to start taking mineral oil. It's the remedy I ended up having to use as a kid, and after trying everything else, it's what works for me on NS. Good luck!..

I have been taking one magnesium pill and one Phillips colon health every night and all is good...

Comment #5

One magnesium pill a day has worked for me...

I went 21 days then I became regular ever since- daily! And HAVE NEVER BEEN before. Go to "search" and type in constipation- you will finds tons of advice on it. It IS scary- but my Dr and I finally felt that there was not much in there to come out- it was being absorbed. Lower cals and burning it off I guess..

IF you get bloated stomach, fever, pain on compressions, nausea, vomitting- you need to get to an ER- do not wait for Dr. appt. Could have a twisted or ruptured colon. Don't play with it..

Last time I went to Dr he expected to see me look 9 mo pregnant- I wasn't. We were puzzled- but absorbtion was the only thing. I had done what many suggested, Mirialx too, 3-4 laxatives- nothing, then drank that crap for colonoscopies that cleans you out from you throat down in 30 min- nothing- drank 2 bottles of that!!! You bet I was scared. But things started working and have been fine since...

Add magnesium supplements (350-360 mg/day) to your deit, as long as no kidney disease. Will cure constipation-too much magnesium equals diarrhea-back down the dose. We lack this mineral in our diets. Helps with leg cramps and sleep as well!!..

I have found that if I eat almonds as my fat and 3 prunes as my dinner fruit I haven't anymore problems...and I'm hypothyroid so being regular is no easy task!..
