I don't take supplements but I do try to overload on vegetables so I handle all of my fiber needs that way. I do agree that if I don't get my vegetables for an extended period of time my plumbing completely gums up. My easiest fix at that point is to turn to beans because even though they're fairly high in digestible carbs, they run through the system fast, get it jump started, and best of all I get to keep shoveling protein into my pie hole

Then I just pick up where I left off and do the best I can.

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
