Constipation when I travel

I have to really watch what I eat even when I'm not traveling, but when I travel my system totally freaks out. Even if I eat nothing but fruits and veggies, I still get real constipated. It has ruined other vacations somewhat. I'm leaving soon for a two week vacation, and I'm already worrying of what I'm going to do. Does anyone have any suggestions for what else someone can do when they travel to guarantee no constipation?

Re: Constipation when I travel

I've always had the same problem.... Vacations are not fun when you are in pain from constipation! I have found these chewable fiber tabs... Sugar free.. I can't remember the brand off hand... but you can buy a big bottle of them, in all kinds of flavors - They seem to help a lot... as long as you drink lots of water! I've also taken metamucil wafers on trips with me.. those are good as well.
