Get Going!

What to do if you can’t poo.

Not going enough (fewer than three times a week) or having a hard time when you do? Gastroenterologist Sanford L. Taffet, MD, of New Rochelle and Mount Vernon has some simple ideas to help you get things moving:

1. Step up your activity level.

2. Drink more water.

3. Increase fiber to 20 to 35 grams daily. Try uncooked fruits, baked beans, nuts, and sprinkle unprocessed bran on cereal. One cup of pitted prunes has 12.5 grams!
