For constipation, I like to take magnesium oxide 500mg-1000mg daily (usually takes 1 day to kick in). I take 1000mg, but this much gives some people the runs. Or, I eat more fat, but with your CO, your fat looks good. If you are constipated, eating insoluble fiber is not a good idea because it will just back you up more. Water does help keep your BMs hydrated and the magnesium pulls the hydration into the BM to get them moving in a very natural way. Lots of people are deficient in magnesium so keep your eye on that in the future.

this is the best way I know to ensure I am getting it right. For me, I would do way more green veggies (spinach, kale, salad greens, etc) and while you are trying to lose no apples or fruits with the possible rare exception of berries. that should help with fat loss (take you measurements as well as using the scale) as well as the constipation.
