  • Drink Lots of water, try eating more natural fiber in your daily diet as well. The key is to prevent it in the first place. Metamucial makes a pink lemonaid fiber additive you put in an 8 oz glass of water and it tastes like the real thing and is NOT thick or fibery.

  • Before going to bed, if constipated, I eat a bowl of whole-grain fiber cereal, like Nuts & Oats, or Multi-grains.Eatting an apple will help clean & move your bowels in the morning too!
