    Hi Audrey

    I haven`t had any problems....cept for the wind.

    As unhappy says try drinking plenty of water and see if things settle down.

    Hey Audrey,

    For the first few days I experienced bloating, gall stone pain, headaches(not drinking enough water!) AND constipation sad BUT it all settled down @ day 4-5 so don't get disheartened just yet, ride it out and it will be worth it when you start shedding those pounds :!:

    TTFN Kal :wink:
