It's normal. I believe the book says you can have some flax to help get things moving, or some psyllium husk.
Metamucil makes psyllium husk pills, I believe the net carbs is 0 because it's just straight fiber. I'm actually googling right now to see if I can take them while on Atkins because they always helped me with my bowl movements and staying regular.
So far found this "Extra Fiber
Atkins recommends psyllium (the main ingredient in Metamucil® and other fiber supplements) and flax seed meal for more fiber. "
