@Curious jorj Thanks for reading! Unfortunately, we do not have the medical expertise to weigh in on individual circumstances. That being said, our research suggests that the healthiest choice is to go whenever you feel the urge (or at least as soon as you can find a toilet!), rather than holding it in. If you are concerned about your personal situation, the best advice is always to seek the input of a medical professional.

@loxo39Thanks for reading! Unfortunately, we're not qualified to offer individual medical advice. Our research does show that whether or not constipation is linked to an increased risk of colon cancer is still up for debate (see: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/10/121022081228.htm, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9647901, and http://www.nature.com/ajg/journal/v108/n6/full/ajg201352a.html). If you're concerned about your bowel movements, the best advice is to consult a medical health professional. Best of luck!

@mosner2 Hi, and thanks for reading! Unfortunately, we're not qualified to offer medical advice for specific conditions. That said, it's safe to say that your mother's bowel movements and routines will likely change as a result of a changed diet, lifestyle, and prescription plan. The best advice is to talk with you mother's caregivers to understand how these factors may affect her bowel health going forward. Best of luck!

@MANCITY01 Thanks for reading! Unfortunately, we're not qualified to offer medical advice for individual cases. Since your routine has changed recently (within the past 3 to 4 weeks) and it sounds like it may be interfering with your daily life, the best option would be to seek a medical professional's advice. Best of luck!
@kieran_ot93 Hi there, and thanks for reading! Unfortunately, we're not qualified to offer medical advice for specific conditions. If you're concerned about your poop routine, if your poop routine changes for no apparent reason, or if it's interfering with your daily activities, the best advice is to consult a medical professional. Best of luck!
@psbThanks for reading, and great question! Here are two resources to get you started: http://greatist.com/health/surprising-high-fiber-foods and http://greatist.com/health/high-fiber-snacks.
@drrobindThanks for reading and taking the time to comment! While our mention of the expense referred to up-front costs, you are quite right that IUDs often pay for themselves in the long-term. Unfortunately, those without insurance (or an insurance plan that covers IUDs) may still find the up-front cost prohibitive. But here's hoping these options become increasingly available!

@vicpenThanks for reading! You're completely right that obsessively using social media and spending too much time alone can be just as damaging as never getting some personal down time (In fact, we wrote an article about the downsides of never unplugging: http://greatist.com/happiness/unplugging-social-media-email.). Ultimately, I think it's a highly individualized issue that comes down to what works best for you as an individual. Here's hoping we can all find a healthy balance!

@cpomerleauHi, and thanks for reading! Unfortunately, there is no one right answer to your question-- it mostly comes down to personal preference. Most sources I've found recommend starting with a brand that you already like, since that's most likely to yield a flavor that you like in the homemade version.
A few other factors to consider:
-The yogurt should have live, active cultures
-The yogurt should NOT contain flavors or added sweeteners (like sugar, Splenda, or Aspartame)
-It's best to avoid a yogurt that uses additives or thickeners (like pectin, gelatin, or dry milk powder)
-Fat content doesn't matter
Personally, one of my favorite yogurts (especially when it comes to taste) is Stonyfield Plain Whole Milk Yogurt. That's also the yogurt that our photographer used to create these photos, and (as you can see) the consistency turned out pretty well. But for the most part, this is a process of trial and error-- experimenting with what consistencies and flavors taste best to you. Hope that was helpful!
