Eat lots of fruits and veggies, drink lots of water, and cut out dairy. It should work wonders. What I do is drink 24 oz of water and 10 oz of coffee and eat a banana and a peach for breakfast, grapefruit for a snack, brown rice and beans and a salad with 24 oz of water for lunch, carrots and peanut butter for lunch, and steamed veggies (broccoli, green beans, carrots, and peppers), grilled meat, and brown rice for dinner. Then berries for dessert.

If you are still dealing with constipation issues after eating lots of fiber for 2 weeks, go on a fruits and veggies only diet until you go, then add in rice and meat.

My son was severely constipated before his diagnosis. Nothing worked for him, not stool softeners, laxatives, enimas, not even the drink before a colonoscopy. Once gluten free I promised him that by giving up all his favorite foods he would be able to poop. Well, I was wrong, going gluten free didn't change that much for him. Finally, this year, a new doctor told me to take him off milk (I was open to this before but the first doctor told me I didn't need to) and that solved the problem. He was off of milk for a total of 2 days before he began pooping everyday. It has been three months now.
