I have always had a constipation problem no matter what I eat from SAD to 80-10-10. So this is what I've gleaned from this site on ways I can resolve this issue.
Basically I have been doing everything bulleted above, except the eat 1 type of fruit per day, and I am still constipated after being 80-10-10 for 3 weeks. Any ideas?
Also, I think bananas are okay, but u need to drink water after or make smoothies with water, cos they can feel a bit dry.. I am in my first weeks too & I know what it's like to walk around with a ful belly & feeling all the pressure & going a bit insane wondering what the hell is going on in ur body? But come on, lets just continue this & give it tie to adjust.. I'm giving it at least six months before i'm going to do my first evaluation, cos I know that years of bad eating cannot be cleared out in a few weeks only..
Okay gang, this is what I’m going to try for the next few weeks after reading all your wonderful ideas—thank you!

I like eating a lighter meal before bedtime and always while it’s still light out.

Most of my greens are going to be juiced, so I think I'll be okay. I've read in other posts that flaxseed is supposed to be good. I've not tried flaxseed in my diet yet, so I'm going to see how it goes since it still keeps at 6% fat overall. I haven't talked with Freelee or Harley, I didn't know I could access their advice directly. But I feel I need to exhaust all my, and everyone here, ideas before I bother them.
You're a gem, thanks for checking on me.
You and tanawana talked me into it. I'm going to visit mono island for a few weeks first and then incorporate aspects of my plan one at a time. Thanks sweet girl.
you need to eat bigger meals and less frequently it seems...perhaps your meals are overlapping and there is not enough time to digest each. i do 2 large meals and then a liquid meal at night and always not later than 7 or else i find it backs me up.
mea1 #1 watermelon
wait 15 minutes or so
meal #2 banana/date/spinach smoothie with like 10 bananas/15 dates
--wait 2-3 hours in between
meal #3 large salad meal with cucs, toms, perhaps cilantro/lettuce
or papaya cut up and banana date smoothie poured over it with celery to munch on the side
dateorade with dates and coconut water to make a thick shake.
of course 1L water upon rising and after exercise.
p.s. flaxseed with constipate you.
what were you eating pre-811 and how long ago was it?
This is almost guranteed to end your constipation! Not proper food combining perhaps but it doen't bother my system and i drink it a lot.. another lovely lady on this forum tried it and it helped her..
Smoothie with RIPE bananas ( 3-4 ) , orange juice ( including all pulp ) from 5-6 oranges and 4 ripe kiwi fruits.... The seeds in the kiwi fruit just really help to get things moving along....
So eating anything with small seeds like that will help... kiwi fruit, figs, come to mind... Also make sure your fruit is RIPE! Let us know.. xx
