I only poo once a week. Please help me go more often

I should be going more often. A typical days diet involves - no breakfast, lunch is a spicy scrambled egg but really more like vegetables binded together with 1 egg ( courgette, mushroom, pepper, spinach and jalapenos) followed by grapes. Dinner is usually a mega salad with chicken, fish, quiche. Small bar of chocolate, another fruit portion and maybe a yogurt. I drink at least 1.5 litres of water daily. Do Hiit training for 20 mins daily.
Yet the only thing that gets me going is having a beer at the weekend and then I think I poo for the whole week, though only once so its uncomfortable and unpleasant.
I have tried a colonic. The lady told me I will be more susceptible to bowel cancer (jeez thanks lady)
I really don't want to become dependant on laxatives but I think I might have to .
Can anyone advise me please?

Spend a couple of weeks having a sachet of this every other evening before bed.
and make some dietary changes

Coffee - Americanos from costa or equivalent. Sugar free haribo. Or if you have a chicken shop near you - dirty chicken strips help.
If you want to be healthy, try the F plan diet - I have never had such regular and healthy bowel movements.
Fizzy water and walking can help too - good luck!

The two things that make me go are beetroot and prunes - either of these in any quantity and I’m off.
Might be worth trying.
(I ate prunes to wean myself off laxatives following the birth of DC1. Other dried fruit was helpful, but prunes were the most effective.)
