I have been calorie counting for the last 4-5 months and have lost around 40lbs. The problem I’m having at the moment is suffering from constipation. I go for around 3 days or so without a bowel movement and when I do go I have to strain. During this time I feel bloated and heavy. I have been using a laxative (bisacodyl) on occasion to help with this and it works but I don’t want to have to rely on it.
My question is has anyone else suffered from this problem whilst calorie counting/diet and what did you do about it that has helped?
