HCG dieters cannot escape constipation, in fact the more they are prone to constipation. This is easy to explain why; the truth is when you are on hcg diet you are consuming less solid foods. The 800 calories per day contains less solid food thus the regular bowel movements becomes irregular. It might take 3-4 days between bowel movement. And you might freak out already.
What causes these irregularities in the bowel movement is the lack of solid food along with the lack of water. Constipated is felt when you want to go to the restroom but nothing seems to come out and you feel the pain and difficulty of discharging the bowel.
If this should happen a few tips should be followed and the most common recommendation is drink plenty of water. Under the protocol, water is the beverage commonly reiterated to be taken in a day. The EZ Diet recommends that you drink ½ to 1 gallon of water per day.
However, if you still feel constipated try smooth move tea or senna tea once a day usually before going to bed to assist in regular bowel movements. If this is still not helpful enough, visiting a physician is best recommended.
