Since he is eating low carbs...he is not getting much fiber to keep himself regular. There are two options...one is to buy fiber tablets....they are called Fiber Choice Sugar Free Fiber Tablets... just make sure you get sugar free...i am sure there are other brands out there also... and also you can get the clear mixers like the Fiber Sure clear mixing tastless powder...you can mix them in foods you cook or in your drink...they are tasteless. Hope this helps! Very Happy

Have him try drinking prune juice. Works wonders and it's natural. Just make sure it's room temperture so it taste a little better. I also eat something small right after to get rid of any aftertaste.

For 8 oz you get 43 grams of carbs. I think. I guess thats a lot.

Atkins recommends psyllium husks. I take mine in capsule form from the chemists

i also use to have that problem in the beginning but i realized this time around that i didnt.. the thing that got rid of it was me drinking 2 cups of green tea, wit splenda, and lime juice..thats just me but i guess green tea does work pretty well and its the decaf one.. good luck

I have 2 words for you all.....Turkey Rhubarb. You can buy it in a health food store, it's in capsule form and they work great for constipation without any side effects.

I had two Atkins bars yesterday and two today. I was warned by someone on this site that they "flush your system" and to be careful. Needless to say, I think these things could cure the worst case of constipation...and they are yummy too! They kicked in the second day for me.

YES! LOL.... Laughing Those little bars are LETHAL if you eat more than one! Will do a number on your insides for sure! I can't eat more than one about every other day or I had better be alone the next day!

I find the Flaxseed oil 3 times a day helps bigtime. But take it with your food or it will give you indigestion.

Yes Im glad to hear about the bad breath thing. It is only my second day and I went out and got me a 6 pack of gum cause I couldn't handle it. Im not sure why maybe its from lack of variety in foods?????
