Thank you everyone,
I have been, and still do, drink over 80 oz. water a day. Water has always been my choice of drink :-)
I have been looking at my food intake and I think I am running short on Salad. Since they say you can eat all the lettuce you want along with 4 cups veggies, I didn't know that you HAD to eat lettuce. I think I have been lacking on the leafy greens. I eat steamed Broccoli for lunch with my packet and no salad then more steamed veggies for dinner and salad sometimes.
I live a ways from a store so I didn't make it there to get any of the items mentioned in here. I WILL be going today, as I don't want this to become a BAD issue.
I did have some OLD ground flax seed from years ago stored in my freezer (2009). I put a TBS in a glass of water and drank that last night and also drank a cup of chamomile tea. Will see how it goes this morning....
I never had this problem while doing the Atkins way of eating. I think maybe the packaged food is causing this along with the lack of greens.
I was stupid a couple years ago, after being on the Atkins way of eating for over 5 years successfully, and decided I was going to go off for the holidays and eat every cookie and pie I could get my hands on LOL. Well I never got back on track and put back on the 50+ pounds that I worked so hard to loose. I had been trying to get back on Atkins for the past year and haven't been able to do it. I heard of IP and thought it would be more structured so maybe easier to get back on track. Hopefully I can get this fixed and stay regular or I will have to do something different. I am down 6 lbs in as I am finishing up my 2nd week so IP is working in that sense but I don't like the side effects that IP/or myself has caused.
Wow...ramble on, sorry
