Dear Reader
If you still experience constipation when eating quite a lot of high-fibre bran and dried fruit, then I would suggest that you a) have a medical checkup b) buy Fybogel (a gentle laxative) and use as directed c) buy Bifidoflora or Bifidoforte ('good' microorganisms - buy at health shop) to normalise your bowel flora. Keep up the exercise and restrict your additional liquid intake to 4-5 cups a day - excessive water intake can also be harmful.
