I don't have a lot of experience with constipation, thankfully, but I just got over what was a pretty awful bout (thank you, stool softener!). If I tracked my food, I'd know what I did to contribute to it, but I've been just concentrating on following the plan meal-by-meal and haven't been tracking. I really, really want to avoid a repeat. What are the most/least constipating Medifast foods?.

The recent changes I can recall are eating more bars, since I was getting down to the end of my supply and had been saving the bars for when I needed to be mobile, and making the frozen shake or hot chocolate recipe...

I don't know if any are more/less constipating, but I had a terrible problem with it in the beginning. I added a daily probiotic and that did the trick without having to use a stool softener. If, on occasion, I am still having a problem, I drink some Licorice hot tea in the evening and the next morning - Bingo..

Hope that helps...

OK, I have TOTALLY the OPPOSITE problem, if you get my drift! I'm finishing out Day 3, and have been running to the bathroom - not just to pee from all the water I'm drinking, either! I can't believe people get constipated on MF! I'm just hoping to get back to "normal" without having to take 4 Immodium tablets every day ....!..

If we get a list of more constipating food, maybe you could eat those!!.

Hey, try the bars and the hot chocolate fudge and let me know if it "firms" you up. LOL...

I became horribly constipated when I was starting to have 3 or more "portable" Medifast meals per day. Puffs, Pretzels, Bars. I particularly remember having 3 puffs for a day or two, and oh my goodness. I won't be doing that again.

But then my husband can eat 2-3 bars a day and be fine. So I think it is purely individual...

WeightyThoughts, I will try the bars and hot cocoa fudge TODAY and let you know!!! ;P..

I have been completely normal since starting MF. Infact today was the first time I didn't go in the morning. But yeah, I've been regular! And for me that's a big deal because I have IBS-D big time!..
