Rice milk is the only thing I consistently drink every day, so i'm wondering if that is whats causing me so much trouble. I also drink the vitamin fortified kind, so maybe its the vitamins that are doing it?

I don't think the rice milk should give you that much trouble. I was drinking it, until I realized there were not many nutritional benefits from the rice milk. You drink the fortified? I haven't heard of that. I know they say that rice is a binder and not good for constipation, but I don't see where the rice milk should cause you any trouble. My diet is pretty consistent as well, but I still get constipated. Sometimes it's not exactly what you eat; it could be what you ate two days ago. In other words, I have not had problems with rice milk. Can you drink almond or soy milk? They are better for you nutritionally, and to me, they taste better. Hope that helps!

hmmm... have you tried cutting out the rice milk as well? I know you probably want to drink something other than water all the time. But you might need to try, at least until you are stable. Have you tried the probiotic KEFIR? If you put it with your rice milk, it might work. Do a search for KEFIR on google, and I know you can order it somewhere. I don't really remember the website I got mine from, but I just started using it and it helps a good bit.

I love my cereal too! I really love my milk, real milk! but I said so long to that a while ago! I take an L.Acidopholus supplement every morning with my breakfast. It seems to help. I also eat soy yogurt. You need calcium too! Make sure you are getting plenty from other sources. Ya gotta have strong bones to support that weak tummy! lol
