    @quiltingjaine Thank you for your insights. As for Keto, I tried it and liked it, but it was the last straw for my problematic digestive system and I ended up with a hemorrhoidectomy in Dec 2018. Even last week, where I was eating "correctly" from a digestive point of view, I got constipated and risked damaging myself again. It was pretty nerve-racking as that is only the second time since the surgery that I have had an issue, and the first time had a clear cause of trying a single day of iron supplement. Unless I solve my system, diets like Keto cannot be in my future. As for IM, it's intriguing. I would have to figure out how to have my diary hit all my goals. But worth thinking about. Sorry if that was TMI. :P

    I swear by inulin if you gradually work your way up with it. It helps keep me healthy digestion wise. It's lightly sweet, so I put it in yogurt or tea or whatever I'm feeling that day. It's a soluble fiber and helps feed the good bacteria in your gut...so it can also make people gassy if they eat too much and their gi tract isn't used to it. But I love it and my stomach is unhappy without it.

    Thank you for the suggestion @playhardkf2017 My CRS has me on daily Miralax and Benefiber for life, and I still managed to get constipated last week. Just crazy. I'll definitely check out the inulin. I have heard that magnesium and Vitamin C are also both natural add-ons that I should incorporate.
