first diarrhrea now constipation


After dealing with some job/stress related IBS diarrhea for a while, I finally got that under control with fiber powder. The fiber really helped out a lot.

Now things stresswise have calmed down exponentially for me, and my IBS has gone away as well (from what I can tell). However, now when I go number 2, i feel a little constipated, it seems like my poop is harder and it needs more effort to "go".

I am still taking the fiber powder stuff (twice a day). My diet is mostly good, oatmeal/toast in the morning, orange and something at lunch, dinner with veggies. I also drink water during the day and indulge in a couple diet cokes (need my fix). Is there anything I can do to keep from getting constipated? I mean, I am able to go, it just feels slower (if that makes sense). It feels like I swung from having bad IBS diarrhea and going a lot, to now not going at my regular times and being kind of constipated. I just want to be somewhere in the middle!
