You can add ginger to green tea. Avoid empty calories like soda pop. No artificial sweeteners.
If you have not tried MiraLax
, it is very helpful. Metamucil is good for you as it is high in fiber, but alone it was not helpful for me (I have a long and twisted colon). But I am experimenting with using both Miralax and Metamucil, and it is a good combination for me. I also have to take a strong Rx medication - Amitiza - but due to the expense, you will want to avoid that if possible.
