Oh gosh, yes, I actually said that. But it needed to be said… because I get an awful lot of questions about constipation.

If you've been feeling blocked up lately, it’s no wonder. A high protein, low carb diet is likely to be low in fiber.

You see, fiber is found only in plant foods… vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains… often the foods that need to be avoided early post op or are erroneously avoided long term post op.

But don't worry; I’ve got the solution to your pooping problems. Nobody likes to talk about this topic, but I’m here to break the silence and give you the scoop on how to get things moving like a pro.
