Need to get things "moving"

I am probably at least 2 lbs heavier than I would be if I could GOoooo. What do you suggest? Dirt? How does it taste, and where can I get it (cheap)? I am so resistant to taking supplements, but I need some relief!!!

I feel your pain!

Going on 3 days (at least) of sluggish plumbing myself, made worse due to a condition I'm too embarrassed to divulge. At any rate, I finally started taking my Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc caps (about to take my 3rd one of the day) which usually help tremendously.

Milk of Magnesia, if I didn't have the supplement, would be my next option. I've tried Colace before, but I reacted badly to it. Most people don't, so it may be something to look into.

I'm also extremely lactose intolerant, so another thing I sometimes try is ingesting dairy without lactase enzyme supplements (Lactaid)...it's a guaranteed trip to the restroom. And if that fails me, spinach will do the trick. I love it, but whoo lordy does it do a RotoRooter on me.

How do you take it Kristin, how much, and how does it taste? Do you recommend it over probiotics and magnesium? I never had trouble before dieting. This is new, and not welcome.

Need a bag of those Katie. I meant to buy metamucil last night but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I think I'd rather eat a fruit or veg that helps.

try the prunes then. Two at night and by morning they work! The two nightly came about after I had to eat a ton of them to get moving again. The two now are just to keep it moving! I used to do metamucil but after a while the whole thing gets to me.....Hate drinking it! Tried the fiber pills but I think they actually stopped me up more! My mom said to do prunes or apricots...I dont like apricots much so went with the other!

I'm on my 2nd piece of malitol candy. I hope it isn't too late in the evening, lol. I know it works because I ate about 6 of these babies in a staff meeting one afternoon and could hardly make it home!

I found the best info on the main board right here at Low Carb Friends!

Get some Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, the one with the "mother" in it. Put 2 tablespoons in a large glass, one packet of splenda or sugar, fill glass with water and drink! Has worked like a charm for me for over 6 months now!!! I use warm water, but you can use cold too. I drink it with a straw too! Then i drink one more glass of water. I do this first thing in the morning. You can buy Organic ACV at Wally-World, where the other brands of vinegar are, under $6.00 for a quart!

This info is just the very best thing that has happened to me here at JUDD. I have had problems for years, but no more!!!!

As of the last month or so I now take just 1 tablespoon and that is doing the job too!

Good Luck and let me know what works for you!

Leona

Leona, how long did it take to work? I am open to trying something every day, but I need some immediate relief, if you know what I mean, lol. I have ACV, but it might not be organic. I think it has a mother in it, but probably because it's so old. Something is definitely floating in that sucker!

Leona, do you have Wal-Mart? You should be able to buy it there, Nature Made is pretty common. In fact, just about any CVS or Wallgreens should have it too.

Yay, I just found my Nature Made magnesium supplement! Going to start taking those right away.

I tried Mg, and CO (which helps a bit, gradually). The candies worked but it wasn't pretty. And shirataki has the opposite effect on me.
So we're all different.
I use about a teaspoon or two of dirt in a glass of water. It tastes pretty much like dirt in water. It tends to sink so I keep filling up the glass with water again, swirling it, and drinking it. There is a huge thread describing various benefits of the dirt. I love the stuff.

I felt a bit nauseus after reading that Kristin, lol. I'm not sure I'm ready to hit the dirt. It's been in the back of my mind for some time now, so maybe I'll ease into it...after trying everything else. I've read a bit about that suppl on here somewhere, and I also want to get some for my dogs, whether I eat it or not.

Yes we have WM but that brand is not the right KIND??? I've been told it shoudl have the word magnesium citrate
and the stores here only have the word magnesium with a ( now I forgot what it was maybe oxide, whatever ) Will get back to you on the right kind when I find it!!

Sorry about the mix up!!!

Yeah, stay away from it! I swore, I SWORE that the dirt sisters were too crazy for me, that eating dirt was going too far. And here I am, brushing my teeth with the stuff , scrubbing my face with it , and cleaning out my intestines.
Crazy. Let us know how your experiments go. We'll all learn something.
(So happy to hear your DDs are getting easier, by the way. You deserve it. Good on you for sticking it out. )

ok, I so struggle with this.....

2 things that are natural (I dont take tablets because everyone else I know that has used them HAS to use them to go now) are....
- Potatoes in their skin - full of fiber and since starting the potato hack (eating potatoes all day) I have been super regular. Ate normal a couple of days, slowed down again. Just finished 3 days of mainly potatoes, bang! Can't wait to weigh in tomorrow! (sorry for the tmi)

- kiwi fruit in its skin. I know, I know, WTH you ask? It is like a scrubber for the intestine, if you are having trouble and you can stand to eat it (I like it, I slice it really fine and eat on its own or with yogurt), Have one in the morning and give it 12 hours. I really works.

I love that we can be open about this stuff, I can't tell you how many people scrunch their face up to me face to face, lol. It's a running joke with me, it's what I'm best known for love u judd budds!

Yeah, dirt. There's a HUGE thread here on diatomaceous earth, which sounds a lot prettier than dirt, but that's what it is.
I find the potato hack working in this department, too, though surely, "eat potatoes and nothing but potatoes all day long" is even weirder than saying, "eat dirt."

I used to use it in my garden (not the food grade type) for slugs. It's fossilized diatoms (type of algae), high in silica.
