You might want to try taking a laxative to help you, and then after that, make sure you eat foods with plenty of fiber. An optimal diet would typically include: Breakfast Bran cereal (All-Bran 13 gm; Fiber One 18 gm) Lunch A large salad (Dinner Plate) Dinner Two one cup servings of vegetables (broccoli, etc) Starch 4-5 oz chicken or fish Salad Learning how to change one's eating habits takes deliberate work over many months. When shopping, one must be familiar with the calorie and fiber content of all foods, and plan and purchase with menus in mind. One must read the content information on the package. This process can take six or more months to master.
