I never have this problem so can't offer any suggestions, only sympathy.

I do know that when I make salads with lots of that Spring Mix baby greens... I especially don't suffer from any constipation problems! So maybe you could start including a lot of those little leaves of variety greens in your diet and see if they give you the same.. ahem.. results!

Sometimes magnesium supplements help. I take one every night. The only other thing I can suggest is lots of salad and veggies on DDs--you get more "bang for your buck" that way, as well.

I swear by a good Probiotic! It's a great way to help things along, and it's also great for our health. Laxatives can be harsh, but a Probiotic works with your own bacteria in your gut to balance things out and make them "normal". I take one a day and now have NO problems. I may "go" a little less on some days, but I always "go"!

The most gentle way to "go", I have found, is to take some soluble fiber like Benefiber--
WalMart has a generic version that is much more affordable.

IMO, the best supplement is Triphala.
Many laxatives (other than bulking agents, like psyllium) cause the muscles of the colon to contract/cramp (senna) or relax (magnesium)--
triphala works by strengthening the muscles and stimulating better digestion.

Another effective laxative is Swiss Kriss.
I always have a bottle of this in the house!

Flax oil also moves things along for me...
so much so, that I can't take it when my digestion is working well!!!

I agree that probiotics are a very important supplement.
But if you need something more immediate, I think probiotics can take a week or two.

I take two Swiss Kriss (long with calcium, B complex, multi-vit, vit c, glucosamine and chondroitin, & a fish oil capsule) every morning along with two fiber gummies. I also try to have yogurt after my workout Mon-Fri.

I have to work really hard at this cause I tend to have problems in this department.

Since I've been on JUDDD I have not had this problem because of all the veggies I eat.

However, when I was on HHCG, I did have the problem and so I used 'Calm' which is magnesium citrate and it is in powder form. Very effective.
