    Yes, I said it.
    Anyone get it?
    I don't know what to do.
    I 'go' about once every 3 days. :sad:
    I used to go daily.
    I even bought (and have been taking...3x a day instead of 2x like recommended) these natty laxative pills.
    Nothing is helping.

    :(

    LMAO!! :funny:

    Since you are gonna make me respond, yes, there were times when I was. Usually, I was able to eat salads instead of broccoli (b/c I could eat more lettuce than broccoli) and it filled me up and got things moving along. That and extra water. If that wasn't enough, coffee, GULPED. I'm not talking taking sips of hot coffee, I'm talking letting it cool to nearly room temperature and gulping the heck outta the cup. :lol:

    I'm not prepping for comp, but I'm dieting pretty hardcore and have noticed this has become a greater problem since I've been low-carbing.

    Have you tried sugar alcohols? Like in S/F gum? They always used to make me bloaty and gassy but I'll chew some every now and then when things need to get moving. Also, sometimes caffeine helps for me- like a monster cup of coffee.

    Also, those natty laxative pills usually do it for me, but for some reason it takes 1/2 a day for them to kick in.

    Maybe eat some more veggies (for fiber)? I'm sure you're chugging the water like woah already... Sorry, that probably wasn't all that helpful :oops:

    Thanks for the replies!!!

    B-- how does lettuce help more than broccoli? I figured broccoli would get things moving cuz it has more fiber, no?

    Sara- I've already had my allotted artificial sweeteners for the day...lol...I am a recovering splendaholic...I'm trying to limit them precontest...All these pills are doing is giving me bad gas. :lol3: :sad: :(


    I'm going to make more coffee.

    Damn, I'm going to have to use another whitestrips then......

    It works for me. I'm able to have more volume from lettuce than broccoli. The extra volume helps. :shrug:

    Hmmm.
    Maybe I'll try that.
    Just regular iceberg or a green leafy kind?

    I like romaine, but others would probably work just as well.

    I know of one sure fire thing that works.. It is somewhat pricey- but dang- you will definately go- no doubt. It is called Oxy- Powder.. you get it from www.oxypowder.com I would definately suggest it.. It comes with instructions, and one of the things they have you do is drink water with a squezzed lemon in it.. It is a definate colon cleanser.. I know it all sound graphic, but you will be shocked at what actually comes out...:blink: look at the bright side- your tummy will feel beter and be flat as ever!!!:laugh:

    I feel like they just take care of what's 'at the end' and not from inside. KWIM?

    The oxypowder is not an enema- they are magnesium capsules that you take with lemon water at night on an empty stomach. It has done wonders when you have not "gone" in a few. A little pricey but you can save it for those desperate times.
