Hi Pam,
“According your book you indicate that fresh pineapple is a low FP but I did that calculation last nite and it came out high.”
NR: What serving size, total carb and fiber count did you use? Did you plug in 66 for the glycemic index?
“Also, with the constipation, I am wondering if increasing the fat intake would help by actually consuming raw olive oil or something.”
NR: Yes, consuming raw olive oil should help. Here’s a study where it helped (though the study involved hemodialysis patients which might make a difference) using 4 mL/day. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25238699

WebMD actually recommends up to two tablespoons (28 grams) per day for constipation. http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-233-olive.aspx?activeingredientid=233&activeingredientname=olive
