Like everyone had said, water, especially with more fiber. Get at least 8 glasses or more. I've been feeling the same way lately but I know what will run right through me on any given day so I went for it and kept it within my calorie range and, sure enough, it worked. See what works for you and try it, just watch your intake.

If you've increased the amount of fiber you eat (fruits, veggies, whole grains) make sure you're drinking plenty of water to keep things "moving".
It's not unusual for a person to experience some minor or not so minor constipation when they start eating a healthier diet. Your body will adjust, but it might take a couple of days. Don't take a laxative unless told to by your doctor.
When I was a child and had issues, mom gave me Philips Milk of Magnesia. Otherwise, do you like prunes ? Some folks have said that prunes work wonders.

I went from eating mcdonalds almost everyday to a diet full of fibre, veggies, fruit, and tons of water, and I had the exact same problem. It made no sense to me.
It happened to me on and off for about 2 weeks, and then started getting into a normal rhythm again.
I have found that changing my diet for the better usually helps ... move things along, actually. Make sure you're getting at least 25 grams of fiber a day, and drink lots of water to help the fiber do its job.
