The bowel thing....


Recommended Posts

So I did a search, and I'm not finding what I'm looking for.  I used go every morning, on the regular.  I'm on day 12 and I think I've only gone 3 times. Now I don't feel all stopped up or gassy, or anything, but it's odd for me. And when I do go, it's much less.  I'm eating plenty of fiber.  What gives? Is this the new normal?  Anyone else?

Are you drinking enough water?  Recommended amount is half your body weight (in pounds) in ounces daily.

What are you eating and how much of it are you eating - if you are eating too little - your body will not make it a priority to get rid of waste as there is little of it.  Feel free to give us a run down on what you are eating as it will help us help you to troubleshoot.  Please be detailed.  

Too many nuts - nuts will cause a ton of digestive distress.  They are not an ideal fat source because of their omega 3 to 6 ratio.  Recommended consumption is 1 closed handful every other day.

I drink enough water to kill a fish :)  


I'm following the meal template, mostly eating recipes out of the W30 book, with a few Well Fed recipes tossed in. Seems like a lot of orange veggies, but I like orange veggies, so it's ok.  I only didn't follow the template once, I forgot to grab my dinner on the way out the door in the morning, and it was school night, so I stopped at the store and grabbed a Larabar and an apple. Not the best dinner ever, but it kept me from growling at my classmates.  As far as nuts, the only nuts I've eaten are chopped pecans from the W30 sausage, apple, squash casserole and Well Fed's tuna.  About a Tbs for the tuna, and probably about the same for the casserole.  

I don't feel bad, I'm actually feeling very spunky these past couple of days. It is just a big change.  Obviously less food in makes less food out, and I probably am eating less overall. No mid morning snack, no afternoon snack, no after dinner snack.  No handful of this or that here and there.  It just seemed like a big change. But as I'm feeling fine and no tummy troubles. I'm just going to roll with it.
