atroianos Posted February 7, 2013 Share Posted February 7, 2013 Hello. I've read several threads regarding this issue on here, and I did go ahead and get digestive enzymes. I take them before each meal as I was told to, but unfortunately, they are not doing much for me. This problem is a rather serious one for me, since I am someone who overcame severe constipation issues from childhood. I underwent surgery that was provoked by my poor eating choices which led to a barrage of health issues. The surgery scared me straight! And I was able to regulate myself and get off my laxative dependency. I dread the thought of being constipated and always assume that If I dont have a movement within 36 hours something is wrong. After changing many things about my lifestyle, I was good to go. Prior to beginning my Whole30 I was as regular as one could get; once daily and I was happy. Now that I am just finished with my whole 30 (last day was 2/5), I sadly have to say that the entire month left me with issues in that dept. On 3 occasions I took a colon cleanse (active ingredients are psyllum husk and senna leaf). I have every intention of continuing this style of life; i think it's wonderful! But I am concerned about my regularity. Digestive enzymes aside, is there any other solution to this problem? My diet mostly consists of the following: Gym first thing in morning (5am) Breakfast: Two egg whites (occasionally a yolk if I am really hungry) and a slice of turkey A fruit at around 10am Lunch: lean protein and veggies of some sort mid afternoon snack: Smoothie with kale, spinach, 1/2 banana and berries dinner: Protein (might be a bit more fatty than the lunch portion of protein) and veggies again If I crave something sweet after dinner, I will slice up an apple. I consume at least 100 oz of water a day as well (I have a liter bottle on my desk and always get thru 3 refills). I don't take any other vitamins or supplements since being on the whole 30. Thanks for any insight! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
