    Losing weight - a little advice please

    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

    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 , whats the remedy for this ? I thought the oats would provide the fiber intake, doesn't seem to be working

    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
