    Fiber simply adds bulk. If your digestive system is accustomed to a lot of fiber and you reduce your intake, yes, you'll get constipated. If you reduce it slowly, or use natural laxatives (magnesium citrate or Vitamin C as ascorbic acid), your bowels will eventually adjust. Poop is mostly bacteria.

      Namelesswonder ( fun name :-])

      Thank you! So basically one could cut out bulk fiber veg (broccoli, carrots ect...) yet still keep some well ( meaning melt in your mouth fermented ) cultured Veg for probiotic benefits. By just keeping suppliments like magnesium will result in a good functioning digestive system that peristalsis still could occur without much fiber?

      If so that's great, I could easly enjoy lettuce and cultured veg only next to animal proteins!

        Lean meats will leave one constipated, correct?

          you need fresh veggies PLUS fermented veggies. it's not best to rely on the preserved stuff.

          magnesium is lacking in most people's diets these days and yes it helps promote regularity, among other things, but it's not something you take "instead" of eating greens.

          any idea how much fat per day you are eating? i don't track fiber at all, but most days i eat 100+ gms of fat and take a magnesium supplements daily. my bowels run like a clock.

          you have healing to do though. take probiotics, take magnesium and eat bone broth once or twice per day.
          As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

            I was constipated all of the time due to a medication I was taking and nothing helped. I tried drinking lots of water, over the counter drugs, even consulting a doctor. I know this is an embarrassing subject, but left unchecked it can do massive damage to your digestive system.It got so bad that one night I had a terrible stomach ache and felt like I needed to go. What happened next caused me to seek help online. Constipation cure Since the waste couldn’t come out where it was supposed to, it found another route. I think you get the picture.Later on, I found out how extremely dangerous this incident was and that I could have even died from it if an infection had resulted.I just want to say that the only thing that helped was this guide. Thank-you so much!

              Even when my diet was over 60% fat, I would be constipated. I can drink coconut milk and still be constipated.

              Magnesium is what everybody recommended on this forum. I take it as needed when desperate.

              Since adding kombucha, kimchi, yogurt to my diet-- a little bit every day, I'm less constipated.

              I noticed better BMs since adding fruit like mangoes, watermelon, pineapple and decreasing fibrous veggies.

                George- did that book say how to "relax pelvic floor" if its in a constant tight state? That's usually the cause for people with "chronic" constipation so the eat mono meals, certain veggies or fruits, supplements, water ect... Does nothing to relax the pelvic floor therefore one is still straining in the loo bc the muscles are too tight there for poo to move out. It actually will pull up tighter when all other muscles are bearing don on it.
                I'm really curious if the author knows about this and how to fix this cause for constipation ??
