I remember my grandma always telling me that rice will bind you up. After a couple months gluten free my D is completely gone! (just on occasion I'll have extra loose stools with some cramping but not quite D) I have been having more frequent constipation and I assume it's b/c of the rice products I'm eating?? I don't eat white rice. I always buy brown rice and brown rice tinyada pasta with rice bran- does the rice bran add more fiber? or does it really make a differance if i buy it with or without? I was always wondering this. Then I saw that some people cant have rice bran or rice at all because of the protien it. :huh:

I eat plenty of veggies otherwise I dont know what I would do LOL - I'd be completely plugged up and dry. I ussually have brussel sprouts or broccolii- theses work the best for me, and I find that canned peaches help also, I eat apples everyday. Carrots I have to stay away from unless they are cooked well and potatoes just bother me altogether...

besides rice for my grains I also eat quinoa, kasha buckwheat cereal and occasionally corn tortillas. If there's anything else natural that helps with dry stools I'd luv some advice :) I cut back on the rice and notice the differance already. I'm not so much C but just really dry. (wow, gotta luv the poop topics) :lol:

This seems obvious, but gotta ask. Are you drinking enough fluid throughout the day?

ahh this sounds familiar, i know drink loads of fluids during the day, as well as more fruits and veggies then any human should, not to mention that i do drink tea that is a detox tea, its gluten free and it just helps things move along, it NOT a laxitive, its mostly green tea, dandilion, and a few other plants, you can get this in a drug store, i use one from Lame Advertisement, most of their products are gluten-free, itll take time but you will find something that works for you! GOOD LUCK!

thanks.

and yes, I drink plenty of fluids, mainly just water. Actually to help me drink more water i will mix it with a little lemon and clear liquid stevia. I often wonder if I drink too much water, but if I dont drink as much as I do I feel dried out. I also drink detox tea occasionally and green tea once or twice a day, they are both gluten-free. I definitly eat an insane number of fruits and veggies, but when I'm working it's hard to eat as much. I will keep searching for something...

A OTC gentle way to help hard stools is Colace Stool Softener

They are non habit forming and do help. One a day (usually) is all you need.
