South Beach Diet - Question...

View Full Version : Question...

Did anyone else have trouble with... constipation I guess... in the beginning? I know this is total TMI but I haven't gone in a couple of days and that's not normal for me. I picked up some sugar free fiber tablets, can you tell me if this goes against the diet? I haven't had a chance to get to the library and pick up the updated book yet, coming up on finals week in school so going off what I know from about 6-7 years ago.

If you'll scroll down on the South Beach page, you'll see a thread titled "Possibly TMI," where several people mention that it's a common problem at first. Ranks right up there with . . . the opposite problem. : )

YES! I had this problem bad. Now I mix benefiber into my water a couple of times a day. Been more regular then ever! LOL

Beans help. And drink lots of water.

Beans definitely helped me.

Make sure you're eating your greens and your beans :)

Konjac root is good for this as well... its what Shirataki noodles are made of, full of fiber and little calories

Thanks guys. I was just worried if taking the supplement would throw things off. Glad to hear it's okay. I'm not much of a bean person, so don't eat them. Probably part of the problem. LOL

My "problem" just started two days ago, I started taking the benefiber but was only doing it once a day and Im going to kick it up a notch. However, I do have to admit I have slowed down on my greens just out of boredom.
