Gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, or constipation can happen when first starting The Simple Diet. These should get better in a few weeks as your body adjusts to the diet. Be sure you drink enough fluid. Dr. Anderson suggests that if you do have a problem with constipation, use one dose of psyllium (which is Metamucil), once or twice daily as needed. Good luck and hang in there!

Kathy welcome to the team. I am glad to have you hear.

The first couple of weeks are the hardest. The suggestion by Deji is a great one. The crystal lite and Great Valu drink mixes are a great alternative. It will get easier.

Hi Kathy, Had the same problem first week. It doesn't HAVE to be plain water. Book says non-caloric drinks. I hate plain water, so I do mix stuff in mine, or have iced tea. I try to get at least 32 oz of plain water, but that's about all I can gag down. Try crystal light, or the walmart brands to give flavor, or maybe a slice of lemon or lime. Good luck

What have you done today to make yourself feel proud?

Hi, my name is Kathy. I'm 40 years old and have been overweight my whole life. I started the simple diet and so far so good except the water... I can't seem to drink enough and my body is acting strange. I lost 6 Lbs, but am not as regular as I was before (if you know what I mean) and I feel a little bloated. I'm trying to drink more water hoping that'll work! I really want this to work for me!!!!
