Citrucel: Citrucel is a non absorbable fiber and will not cause gas like bran. I recommend this first, and incorporate laxative foods like senna fruits (peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots, cherries into your diet. Consider baking oat/wheat bran muffins as alternative to buying bran products. Much tastier!
