first - make sure you're getting enough water. And part of that means not counting your protein drink in your daily water intake.
And ya need fiber. As Zeitgeist noted - there are lots of OTC forms. or you can make sure you eat enough [which might mean more than usual]. My family each has their own little trick. Oranges and coffee work for me [but i don't usually drink coffee]. Bananas work for someone else. lentils and chick peas work, too.
good luck! and i don't usually have a problem with constipation as long as i eat at least one piece of fruit a day and at least 2 servings of veggies [with some whole grain something or other as well. brown rice works well, so does barley]
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
