It depends on your lifestyle. I started eating healthy after years of soda, fast food, preservatives and no veggies. Now I eat lots of vegetables and fiber, but it took an herbal cleanse to get my colon moving. I had always had a "#2" every couple days to once a week. Now I know that is not normal. Also, suzen, you saw the inside of your colon AFTER you cleansed for 24 hrs before the procedure (my sister had to drink a gallon of prescription liquid to prepare her for her colonoscopy).

I'm much more in favor of increasing whole grains and vegetables in the diet to keep things moving along.
