Everyone Poops


Constipation, fiber and bowel movements are one of the most discussed topics by my clients.

Being constipated and not have a bowel movement are two different things: on this diet you are eating less food, you've removed processed food and junk food, and you are eating fewer calories so your body is using most of what you give it so there isn't a lot of waste left over i.e. you won't have to go as often.

If you are constipated I do not advise adding fiber to your diet but instead making sure you have the correct amount of sodiumand I recommend buying magnesium citrate (in pill form or in powder form like Calm brand magnesium), take it before bed and you will not be constipated in the morning as it is a non-stimulant laxative.
