    IDK what the deal is, but I go to the bathroom about the same time everyday. Whether it is a fasting day or not.

    haha yeah mink I had to hit the milk of magnesia up and I do drink a lot of water. It might of just been me and my body having a hard time adjusting to the new eating style. I really thought more people would have this problem thats a lot of food to squeze in a short amount of time its bound to cause some sort of blockage imo. Im back on IF right now but im taking colex this time to help out with that problem

    Hahah glad that gave you some relief. I actually meant you start taking a magnesium supplement. I take one with calcium and vitamin D as they all help to absorb one another. Colex? That sounds like an uber laxative. If that's the case, avoiddddd.

    I was actually just reading through an IF study today and it said that 4/12 people who did the IF protocol had mild constipation for the first several days. I guess you're not alone.
