I've spent my week eating lots of kale,collard greens,brocolli and romaine and haven't had many bowel movements.Last time i went to the bathroom was on Tuesday.This is really weird,i don't think i've ever been this constipated :(
So do those veggies cause constipation?

They shouldn't. I would up your water, big time.

They shouldn't. What else are you eating? How about water - drinking enough to move things along? Also grapefruit really helps the bowels. And you, yourself, get up and move, move, move. Rebounding is excellent for this. Stretching, walking. Massaging the abdomen/intestine area. Ground flax seed.
Two words: Green Smoothies...

I drink plenty of water,about a gallon throughout the day so i don't think it's that.
Other things i've been eating are berries,mangos,cherries,grapes,apples,celery etc.
I'll look into some green smothie recipes,hopefully those will help me.

Fruit is a natural laxative. Are you eating fruit?
Nothing gets my bowels moving like green smoothies and juices. The exact same ingredients outside of a smoothie or juice are just not even close to the same level of clean out for me...
Do you chew your food really, really well? That makes a big difference in the way your body can use the stuff you put in.
