Hi, thought I should finally register here, been lurking around here and there for the past couple of months.

I'll just do a quick intro:

Basically I wanted to lose weight, so in mid December decided to join the gym.

I weighed 96.8 kg and now weigh 71.9 kg, I'm quite happy but still want to trim and tone and then head to the 'medium-sized built tank' look :evillaugh:

I am currently doing cardio exercises only (running and cross-training) and the occasional 15-20 random press-ups which I just started in the last couple of weeks. Reason: alot of people advising, "can't lose and build at the same time".

I have a few questions to ask the pros:

I am concentrating on keeping the carbs low and usually eating alot of protein (chicken, tuna and eggs etc).

Just recently I've been hooked onto oats, as I don't feel hungry if I have some oats lol. Just wanted to know if I should watch my intake on these ?

Secondly, I recently started to feel constipated :D, whats the remedy for this ? I thought the oats would provide the fiber intake, doesn't seem to be working :confused:

My questions may sound stupid, but any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Brown bread does the trick for me, if this doesn't work - try taking a Vitamin B Complex tablet (it contains loads of yeist - that will make u poop)

This is from experience :) (p.s dont do laxatives - theyre bad)

Increase water intake.

25-35 grams soluble/insoluble fiber per day.

Laxatives if that doesn't work.

Doctor if that doesn't.

50g powdered flax seed a day in water will be all you need

also 1 gallon of fluid a day
