    I'm not kidding. I have tried EVERYTHING in the book: laxatives, oatmeal every morning, activia, and still I'd only go 2-4 times a WEEK. ugh. Then my sister suggested whole grain pop tarts and now I'm an every dayer. haha. Sometimes twice. TMI sorry.

  • Drink lots of water and eat prunes. Unfortunately the longer it stays in your body the harder it gets. You need to hydrate, warm drinks usually help. Try a decaf green tea and see if that helps. Be sure your diet is most fruits and veggies and that will keep you regular. Drink lots of water!
