I go 3 to 4 times a day, but I get a lot of fiber and drink plenty of water, I've felt better after I started going a lot more, though I'm still thinking about a cleanse soon.

Thanks, I was worried I was abnormal and might not be fully digesting nutritional content of food.

Based on the responses, the amount of fiber I eat and exercise I get, it is working well.

i have to actually time what time i get up in the morning and what times i eat before i go out so i can have ample time to go at least twice before i go anywhere.

One thing about eating plenty of whole, fiber rich plant foods--when you have to go, you REALLY have to go. But elimination is easy, nothing like it was in my omnivore, junk food laden days...

Exactly. It's no big deal. It's not a gross thing.

Clean, high-fibre food rocks.

Nuff said.

I've been taught my my naturopath that one bm for each meal is good, so you aren't letting food stagnate inside you encouraging nasties to grow, and besides, who wants loads of old meals

I usually have 2-3 per day, any less and I feel bloated.

What must these omni's intestines be like as many people think its normal to go several days without visiting the bog! :D

Ditto.... it truly is a pain in the a**, ain't it? No more sleeping in for me!

I have one every AM (and it takes forever) and I find that the MORE fiber I eat, the more constipated I am.... same goes for water: the more I drink, the less I go. I know, I'm a medical anomaly. lol

Ok, this was quite embarrassing... lol. However, I feel so much more close to u all! hahahaha :lol:
