could me not drinkin enough water be a cause? im eating alot of fiber but stool is hard and rough to pass. any suggestions?
Try more Vit C, Whats your fruit and veg intake like?
We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.
Try some digestive enzymes, gut health, probiotics, activia yogurt, etc, take your pick. Although this may not be the scientific answer, from personal experience, these products tend to move things along smoothly. Or nutra sells a colon clense which should help clean out the insides to make sure things move freely. Or you could have some medical problem, Im no doctor, Im just giving you some things you could try.

Um, something that I thought about, didn't really see it mentioned on here. What about soluble fiber? I know you said you're taking in a lot of fiber. But if it's predominantly insoluble, could that affect the hardness of your stool?
Of course, I could be completely wrong.

lots of water and soluble fiber.
I put up a car jack side ways in my rectum and then use the vacuum hose to suck most of the sh*t out and then put the attachment with the brush to scrape anything left and suck it out.
If you really wanna go the extra depth you could give it a bleach/hot water bath with a jet pressure, let it sit for a few hours then drain it out.
Or you could just increase your water intake, Vit C, 500mg of magnesium every night(I take mine in ZMA), and actually lower your fiber intake, I go everyday and I rarely eat more than 10-15g/day with no problems.
people have already stated one at a time the things I would have thoguht of:
3. bacterial (food cultures, digestive enzymes, etc)
4. possibly excessive protein per single meal
If you adjust those 4 things and don't see an improvement soon I'd see a doctor just to be safe.
hydration is the key, then add in a bit of Gut Health, and you should feel better fast

Drink water, and consume more protein and fiber. Try RPN's Gut Health, too. That'll make for softer stools and help keep your system regular.
