ok, as embarrassing as this is to be asking about, i am getting seriously frustrated. I have always had constipation issues. that is not new. Generally, if i am drinking a lot of water and working out, it helps and i can go to the bathroom at least every other day. I recently started working out again because i had put on a little weight and i am ridiculously backed up! it has been WEEKS since i have had a decent BM without using an enema. if i do go, its like 2 or 3 tiny little pellets. like marble sized pellets. (sorry for the TMI) i will let that go for a few days, trying to have a decent one. but by the 4th day i feel like crap and here comes the enema again. Then when i use the enema, i literally lose 2 pounds! its ridiculous! Im drinking tons of water, green tea, eating a very high fiber diet, and taking stool softeners each day. what gives? its definitely frustrating my weight loss.Answer Question

There could be something more serious going on. I would see a specialist. Until you get an appointment try senekot it's a natural lavative. You just take a couple of pills at night.

Try cutting back on the fiber a bit. Fiber bulks out your stools and that could what is causing your constipation.
