I am glad to hear you are on the right path to make a change. Perhaps you might want to consult with a naturopath who can help you make the transition. Diet is essential as well as incorporating a good fiber. I use the colonix fiber daily and it really helps keep me regular. Drinking water is also important as well as your diet. Keep us informed and good luck with your challenge. You are on the right path.
