I thought fiber was supposed to help you go?

Ever since I've been eating more fiber I've been constipated. Nothing else in my diet has changed. Whats the deal?

  • If you are adding fiber but not drinking enough water it can add to the problem. Make sure you are drinking at least 8-10 8oz. glasses a day.

  • Fiber only helps if you have adequate fluids. Without enough fluid, fiber makes things worse.

  • Try fiber with liquid like metamucil.
