First question I have is What is the best site online to find middle eastern Medifast recipes? Thanks for any answer or 2. Second question.. My hubby asked me what percentage of us suffer from constipation, generally, and how many suffer from the opposite problem. In all my.

Reading.

So, I would like to ask all of you to get a straw poll:.

Primarily a stool struggle; or.

Loose as a goose?.

For those who are 'normal' feel free to chime in...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

4 months out and go every eight days. Hard as cement. Take stool softener but doesn't really help..

I used to have a huge problem with constipation. Now go regularly every day or every other and pretty normal with the addition of.

Probiotics.

To my daily routine. If I miss it for a couple of days in a row I get constipated again..

Normal/loose for me. Depends on what you eat. Constipated once in a while but not often..

Well since you asked nicely I'll tell you exactly..

I swear but since week two post op my average big potty dump takes about 15 seconds. FYI it is one piece about 10-12" long. I eat a very simple plant based deal so it is also one wipe and done. Not like the one wipe dumps when I was a fat slob who could barely wipe their ass. You all know that one! LOL.

I have never taken a stool softener in this entire journey. I read what so many here eat and it's really no wonder thi is such an issue..

I beleive that it's a combo between worthless type Medifast food and poor protein selection. FYI any protein without fiber is just going to knot your butchered systems up. My Medifast diet is all about fiber and protein not protein and than fiber..

Just sayin Lu..

LOL, thanks for the visional Lu!.

I am 4 weeks out and definately having hard stools! I know for sure it is because I need more fiber! I am so consistently worried about getting all the protein in that I don't even think about the fiber part of it! I was thinking about investing into some.

Benefiber.

Or something to help it along! I have put a cap of miralx in my shakes a couple of times!..

Well, I am a hard stool gal, but am principally on proteins. I try fiber, probiotic, and.

Benefiber.

Twice a day, and now am on.

Colace.

And things are getting a bit better..

I drink 1.75-2 litres of water a day, have started some carbs and a few more fibers..

Lu, you have been, erm - blessed - with a body that will process Medifast food healthily: I know you are not the only one who makes good Medifast food choices, and many of those people are still struggling with bowel issues. Good ploppin' tonight. ;).

O..

I am normal. I did have an issue with constipation due to the.

Iron.

Pills mg increase for anemia but fortunately it wasnt't bad enough where I had to take a laxative or stool softener..

Every morning with out fail my breakfast is yogurt and a protein shake. I limit the carbs and have added a great deal of veggies and drink nothing but water and it has made a great impact. If I have a salad or make a sandwich I use spinach instead of lettuce..

Adding fish 3 times weekly helps too b/c of the omega-3 oils...
