I've always had constipation issues but the doodie used to be an early morning thing (within 20 minutes to 2 hours of waking) - to the extent that if I missed it I probably wouldn't go that day.
For some reason that all changed and it could come any time of day now but usually later in the morning (at work around 9:45). At first I thought this was a good thing - more flexibility and finally not shy to go at work. The problem is that now I rarely go on weekends (busy mid-morning) and pretty much never go when traveling (again, early morning would be just about the only non-public-toilet opportunity) and even during the work week, well, work can be stressful and I often miss my chance.
Any good tips for forcing my rhythm back to the old morning-or-nothing pattern without stimulant laxatives? Morning seems right for most people, myself included.

edit - I was correctly chastised and removed my original post. No offense intended.
I suggest relaxation as I've noted your dietary changes might not be doing what is needed. I've removed most dairy, added probiotics and increased starch and for the most part have much less issues in that area.
