If you haven't had a bowel movement in 4 or 5 days is it permisable to drink a cup of smooth move tea? I have been on the diet for 7 days
What diet are you on? Are you drinking enough?
Most kinds of tea does not contain any calories, so, I guess there's no reason not to drink it.
Yes. This happened to me in the first week because the body is not getting enough fiber to bulk and cause your bowels to move. I purchased the smooth move tea (regular) in my 4th day on the vlcd and It worked for me but also try drinking 1/2 -1 gallon of water a day.
