YIKES!!!! Constipation on Stillman Diet

Hi ladies and gents, I just started Stillman Diet last week so far 15 lbs gone. My only concern is the constipation. I have been drinking more than the 8 glasses recommended by the plan and the nothing just lots of peeing. I was wondering if you can have a drink of Metamucil or Colon Cleanse? In his book he suggests laxatives but I'm nervous that I will take it then get even more constipated. Let me know if any of you have this problem and what you've done. Thanks alot.

Hi Joe!! Congrats on the 15 pounds gone! Glad you joined us in the November thread! I didnt even spot this until now! I am by no means an expert but unless you are uncomfortable or in pain, it is very normal to "not go" for days and days. I dont remember reading about laxatives in the book, but sometimes a little extra fat will get things moving. After a few weeks/months on Stillmans/meat only, I typically go once a week.

You are doing so well for your first week! Keep us posted and keep it up!!

Thanks, for the information. I was going to take mineral oil but was kind of following the whole low fat-no fat rule. Nice to know, and happy to be on board with such a great group of people.
