  • For me, it is as simple as a milkshake. Lactose and I don't get along. But for the kids, I give them a few glasses of apple juice. We don't like prunes, so we avoid them. The apple juice usually works. I've never had that problem for THAT long of a time though.

  • I bike ride and it always helps me poop.You mean for 2 weeks you have not pooped?That's really bad,I would talk to your doctor.Did this ever happen to you before.What have you been doing differently.I would start drinking 8 glasses of water a day and drink 2 in the morning and 2 after lunch and 2after dinner and 2 before bed and eat more fiber like bran cereals,leafy greens,and apples.But the best way I get rid of constipation is inserting suppositories into my anal, I poop right away,you should buy Fleet's ina green and white label,they work the best.

  • are you drinking enough water? cut out white foods (flour, rice, sugar) and other low/no fiber foods like meat and dairy. Eat lots of fruits (not banana, though), vegetables, whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, etc.) and legumes (lentils, tofu, beans, etc.).
