Probably some of the C'ers will have better advice as far as incorporating IF, but my best advice as an A'er is to be patient. I don't want to discourage you, but it took me several months to break the cycle, and I didn't really get "stable" until almost a year on the diet. Keep increasing your SF supplement, stick with the diet, and hang in there... the results are worth the wait, promise.

Also, how are you incorporating the IF foods? It's generally safer at first that they be cooked well and chopped small, if not actually pureed. Too much, too fast, can definitely wreak havoc on your system.

Oh yeah, and yes, the Milk of Mag is an irritant, as are all stimulant laxatives. You'll want to try to use that as little as possible.
