I need coffee to poop

I have a cup of coffee every morning to "get things going".

How do I break this habit? Some mornings I don't have time for coffee which means I don't go. I eat plenty of fiber and drink lots of water, but I've always had a hard time going without stimulant. Help.

You may want to wake up earlier so you can exercise until you have moved things around. In addition, eat 5 to 6 times a day so your metabolism can get going. I am not suggesting you eat more, I am suggesting you eat smaller meals at different times.

I recently went off of caffene and found myself "stopped up". I was eating very low fat - so I added a little healthy fat to my diet (use a vinegrette dressing on your salad, avocados, etc.) and that helps get things moving.

maybe you could try that Activia yogurt to make yourself a little more "regular."

re: poop!

I have been doing Atkins for 1 1/2 years, so what I eat may be different from you. Here is my solution, I eat cabbage, or spinach, or nuts. Other things that seem to work is Earl Grey Green Tea (yes there is such a thing) Gren tea in general really helps move things along. Things that stop the works - BLACK TEA, like the orange pekoe you find everywhere. Also check your vitamin suppliments. Try adding a flax-seed oil (OMEGA 3) pill.

Find a good green tea... I drink 1 cup of a brand called CHINA SLIM TEA (you get it at a oriental market, its in a green box with black lettering) drink one cup a day make sure you follow the directions and dont steep it longer then 2 minutes (or you'll get the runs) and that will keep you regular

good luck

I have the same problem, and I consider it a major issue! What I have found is that the days that I do not wake up to an alarm, and let myself REALLY relax in bed, I can go in the morning without coffee. I don't know if that is an option for you, but it is an indicator that a good night's sleep helps. Also, at least 10 glasses of water.

Make some prune compote (just put prunes, a little bit of water and a tiny bit of sugar in a pot, bring it to a boil and then let it simmer for a while), and eat 2-3 every night before going to sleep... works wonders!

i hardly ever poop anymore...
i stopped abusing laxatives about 6 months ago, after using them for over 10 years, and things are not working. I am hoping that in time my body will learn to work for itself...same with coffee. let your body learn to work without it?
what does everyone else think?

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can learn more and download the 26 page PDF that outlines the system.

The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
