Besides drinking a 12 pack of beer, what food should a person be eating to keep one "regular"? I eat a lot of bananas......is this part of the problem? I expect to get totally humilitated on this subject, but I was wondering what food to eat that would be helpful. If I can come up with the right foods, the humiliation will have been worth it. Thanks. vmax84

Eat one large orange (not the peel or the seeds) before bed every night.

Eat an apple a day. Thats what momma always said.

You need to be drinking about a gallon of water every day, the more fresh fruits and veggies, the better.

I've virtually eliminated fried foods out of my diet and have been drinking quite a bit of water as well. I do eat quite a few apples, celery, bananas, fruits and vegtables, Grape Nut Cereal (I love that stuff), but haven't tried oranges in a while. Still running, lifting, bike riding, and really watching the garbage I put in my mouth....ie, try to stay away from fried foods, sugar, pop, etc. But do slip on occassion and have a beer or two. What about eating cereals such as "all bran" or something like that? Isn't bran suppose to be good for ya? Thanks again. vmax84

For something with some flavor, try raisin bran. I like the Total brand personally.

YOu need to get more fiber in your diet. The one food which I enjoy for the aformentioned task is the potato. I eat them with the skin. I found that really does the job.

i drink tang flavored fiber every morning and every night. if i dont i go back and forth depending on what food i ate that day. but the fiber guarantees that i wont take off into space after i just downed some after death sauce.

Recently had a trip to the proctologist with telephone poles for fingers [shock]. He said that in order to avoid anymore trips to see him, I needed to eat Fiber One cereal. 1/2 cup till you get used to it, then 1 cup a day. Made a believer out of me? [bounce] L'man

Get a large bag of dried mixed fruit. Eat it and call me in the morning. [8D]

LOL! The old guys at work swear by Metamucil. As to your question about bananas, have you ever heard of the BRAT diet? Bananas, Rice, Apples and Toast. Use it when your little kids have diarrhea. So bananas might not be the direction to go in. Might be different for older people though.

"They" now recommend that men eat at least nine different servings of fruit or vegetables a day. I believe that the article that I read was referring to raw fruits & vegetables because they are much better for your digestive system as roughage. The roughage also apparently "carries" excess fats out of your system which keeps your heart healthy. There is nothing wrong with bananas but they do not have any fiber to speak of. Bran cereals have a lot of fiber, usually 5 to 7 grams per serving & they are the gold standard. Wheaties have 3 grams so they are OK. Don't suddenly go on a high fiber diet or you will be spending all of your time in the john. Ease into it with a little more fiber each day or every other day. A little known piece of trivia: Some "no sugar" candies use sorbitol as a sweetner & the sorbitol acts as a laxative. Every morning I eat Corn Flakes for the corn, Wheaties for the wheat & Cheerios for the cheer!

Yeah, bananas can be a killer; they seem to stop me up. Lately, I've been following the "Warrior Diet": [url]http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0938045350/qid=1053380964/sr=8-2/ref=sr_8_2/002-4662103-6924868?v=glance&s=books&n=507846[/url] In this diet, you don't eat anything but "live" foods during the day (raw fruits & veggies, and fresh juices). Then you load up on the fat & protein (and processed carbs, if you need them) at dinner. It keeps you [b]very[/b] regular, because you digestive tract isn't getting stuffed during the day; it has lots of time to process what's in your intestines. # of BMs > 1/day [;)]

Try Uncle Sam cereal. Besides its physical benefits, it actually tastes pretty good.

I expect to get totally humilitated on this subject, but I was wondering what food to eat that would be helpful. If I can come up with the right foods, the humiliation will have been worth it. Thanks. vmax84[/quote] "the humiliation will have been worth it. Thanks." We'll see as this thread progresses. Dates,Dates or prune juice. Stay close to the Head.

Broccolli, cabbage, cereal, and onions. And not all together or your gonna bust!

Throw some prunes in your cereal. They taste great! And you WILL be regular.

Plantains. Boiled, fried, it's all good. Also boiled yucca and ~name work well too. And a combination of all three... Well...you'll just have to find that one out on your own...
