I have done the water, the extra mag pills more cal-mag, olive oil. stool softners, enzymes, can anyone help with this I am losing and do not want to stop, but the pain I go through is starting to take over the desire to lose 20 pounds.
Are you eating your vegetables too? Spinach gets me quite regular ;-)
Magnesium as I said helps. I take my own, either CALM or the pills I take at night at Metagenics MyoCalm P.M.
Make sure you are also getting enough activity. Something as simple as walking can aid to move things along too.
I've dealt with the big H too and believe me NO FUN... if you have them hanging out try to shrink them with the ALUM solution... man that is great. I had one strangulated too BTW due to some diet pills I took that must have had Sena or something that really aggravated them.
