I found magnesium to help with the "go". I take a Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc supplement in the morning and at night 2 (400 mg) High-Potency Magnesium liquigels. I do drink a lot of water, which also helps, I believe, but with the fat flush, Mg is depleted. I can tell when I forgot to take it; I get leg cramps and/or charlie horses. When that happens, I take an oz. of Magnesium Citrate (the cheap bottled stuff docs used to rx for pre-op patients to "clean them out"). Don't over do it, though... unless you have plenty of time to spend in the bathroom! Yikes! Hope this helps!

I am trying to remember when I did this ten years ago. I had olive oil daily at that time. I use mineral oil occasionally. I might add coconut oil to my morning smoothie and see if that helps. The fiber is making me bloaty and uncomfortable!
Slow and steady wins the race.

Help! What are your go-to tricks to help you, well, go? I am drinking fiber at lunch with my protein shake. I am adding fiber to my diet with greens and salads and fiber pills. I am drinking so much water I feel like I slosh when I walk. Anything out there to help and not mess up the keto?
