  • Need a laxative recommendation.

    Title says it all, I guess.
    Start Date 9.24.12
    Starting weight 285ish ( scale is acting funny so I don't trust it, but 285 is close )
    CW - 271 pounds
    First Goal - 255 by 2013
    Main Goal - To be healthy for my family... I have an awesome family.
    Other Goal - to get off some medications
    Final goal - to get to about 180 pounds by 2014
    NEW GOAL - When I can start a new journal called "Your dad is not so fat!"

    Your Dad is So Fat

    My gastro recommends Miralax--supposedly it can be taken daily and doesn't have the negative effects of other laxatives.

      I apologise for this because I realise this is a serious question, but try this (and you did say in your journal that you like your food hot!) Being stupid, me and my brother tried it, only once mind, and it is mildly piquant!!

      The Chicken Ringstinger

      A dish originating from just south of the North Circular, London. This dish is loved by all, but I'll take no responsibility if you're a bit too much of a big jessy and you end up on the toilet for days on end after eating it!

      Serves 1-4

      Ingredients:
      2 lbs Chicken
      6 Medium Onions, chopped
      4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
      8 tblspn Ghee or Vegetable Oil
      2 cans of chopped tinned tomatoes
      24 fresh Habaneros Chillis, chopped
      30 dried red chillies,crushed
      2 tspn Red food colouring

      Spices:
      2 tsp ground turmeric
      2 tsp ground cumin
      2 tsp ground coriander
      5 tsp ground hot chilli powder
      1 tsp dried fenugreek leaves
      A couple of capsicum pods

      Optional (for the clinically insane only):
      bottle of tabasco sauce (try eating a teaspoon neat!)
      bottle Encona West Indian Hot Pepper sauce (mmm)

      Mandatory
      12 large jugs iced water
      15 rolls of Kleenex
      1 week off work
      1 ambulance.

      Method:
      1. Fry the chicken, onions, garlic in some of the oil. Put all the spices in a bowl with a bit of water and mix to a paste. Fry this paste in a second pan for 10 minutes in some of the oil. Now combine all ingredients in a large vat or saucepan and simmer for 1-2 hours.

      2. Add 3 tablespoons chilli powder and some more dried red chillies towards the end. Add a teaspoon Garam Masala 5 minutes before serving.

      3. Leave to cool for 2 minutes before serving.

      4. Serve on a bed of rice, followed by a bed in hospital.

        I read this somewhere probably a year ago, and have found it to be true for myself. Eat soup. Make a nice chicken & veggie soup with homemade broth (so you know what's in it), and let it all cook in the broth for a while to soak up liquid.

        I believe the rationale was that eating food that is really bulked up with water kind of encourages everything to push through a lot faster. Just drinking a lot of water won't do the same thing as eating a food that has been saturated in water. I am sure there's a more detailed explanation online, but I can vouch that this method works for me. :-)

          A couple of tablespoons of coconut oil works for me.

            I personally prefer to make a glass of Natural Calm & add a teaspoon of vitamin C crystals.

              Little bit of Bubbie's Sauerkraut or Kimchi.

                Magnesuim Citrate.
                10 ounce bottle followed with 3 8 ounce glasses of water. Stay close to the bathroom after you drink it. I would use this if you need instant relief. Miralax would have to be used 'off-label' in order to relieve you immediately, it's more of a daily, longterm use product.

                  Strong coffee on an empty stomach tends to get me moving, if you will.

                      ive read these problems are typically associated with lack of fat or having problems with fiber

                        Coconut oil. Just don't take too much at once or you will have the opposite problem.

                          I've had luck with many of the above recommendations, but I thought I would also add Smooth Move Tea, a laxative called Colon Super Cleanse and Epsom Salt Baths. But, overall, more fat in the diet and less fiber generally does the trick for me.

                            More fat, more water (especially as fiber increases, else it'll stop you up), probiotics and if ongoing, get thyroid checked... and make sure they test FT3, FT4 and rT3.
