I'm not going to comment on the Diet itself, other than to say that I don't believe in them - healthy, balanced nutrition and portion control is generally the best way to not only start a healthy lifestyle, but also to continue on it the rest of your life.
As far as the Flax is concerned, it is quite likely that you have upped your fibre intake considerably, rather suddenly. That is NOT a good idea. When fibre is increased, you really should do it slowly to give the digestive tract a chance to get used to the changes.
In the meantime, if you are still having difficulties, I would suggest increasing your water intake, and also ensure that you are getting enough fat. A lot of people cut fat right down or out - without realizing that our body, bowels included, actually NEED the fat.
IF you still have issues, then perhaps talk with your Dr about what has been going on! If need be he/she can give you something to loosen you up but not cause problems. Strange as it may seem, not all laxatives are created equal.
