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?
I used to have really irregular/infrequent BMs when I was anorexic. What's really helped me is having LARGE meals (well, large for ME anyway - around 700-1000 calories at a time). Something about having all that food go IN.... pushes some stuff OUT if you know what I mean ;) Blending helps to get those cals in.
eating 80-10-10 and a series of colonics/ colon hydrotherapy helped me tons. I went from once per week to 4 times per day! The SAD diet makes the colon really sluggish and sometimes its needs a boost to get it working optimally again
3 weeks is a pretty short time compared to how long you've been alive. If you eat enough fruit, I think the constipation will give way soon enough.
Sorry if this is a bit awkward...but do you squat?
It's very helpful, not to mention it saves the waste of toilet cover wax papers.
