Today on the show 7/17/12 (Tues) the colorectal surgeon mentioned more water and fiber to prevent constipation. While this has shown to be true, IMO there are exceptions ... I'll use myself as an example: I have IBS, and the more fiber I have the more constipated I get. I've tried it. It constipates me so bad that I need to take some laxatives after. The fiber seems to make my colon slow down.
The worst foods that I can have are the high fiber ones. I can have one high fiber food at a time, but only occaisionally. This is with adequate water intake during the day also.
Any one else have the same problem?
