    Good luck to you.

    I'm just running it for 7 days to cleanse, then I plan on being done with it.

    I agree, there is actually a product called Detox-LGC that I used twice a year. It helps clean out my colon and can help build up on the intestine walls. Normally the quote "you think your sht don't stink" is made fun of. But its true, there should be very little smell to no smell in your BMs. The more bacteria you have the worse it will smell. But, you don't wanna go from I can't crap, to holy crap i need depends. No one likes a Leakey O ring lol

    Really Bad Smelling comes from
    An imbalance of intestinal bacteria or eating too much animal protein, which can putrefy in your digestive tract.

    While your digestive cells are absorbing sugars, starches, fats, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, waste products continue traveling down the line. In the colon, all the leftovers are combined, packed together, and partially dehydrated. What remains - our feces - consist of water, indigestible fiber, undigested food (such as corn and small seeds), sloughed-off dead cells, living and dead bacteria, intestinal secretions, and bile. (The worn-out red blood cells in bile give excrement its distinctive brown color.)

    If all goes as it should, you'll end up with a healthy bowel movement. Although digestive idiosyncrasies, variations in intestinal bacteria, and other variables can produce different standards for a healthy stool, in general it should be brown to light brown; formed but not hard; cylindrical, not flattened; fairly bulky and full-bodied, not compacted; somewhat textured but not too messy; and very easy to pass. And it shouldn't smell - much. You're passing methane and bacterial, degraded foodstuffs, so there's always going to be an odor, but it shouldn't be a very strong, pungent odor.

    Frequency
    There's no generally accepted clinical definition for frequent bowel movements. Bowel habits vary widely among healthy people. Population studies indicate that most people have more than three bowel movements a week. Generally speaking, however, normal is what's normal for you.

    Frequency of bowel movements also varies for individuals over time. You could have one bowel movement a day for years, and then begin to have two or three for no obvious reason. If your bowel movements increase in frequency but not in any other way — no loose, watery stools and abdominal cramping (diarrhea) or bloody stool — the change is probably not a sign of illness.

    I hope this helps. I can site the info if you wish. most this came from my personal nutritionist, and doctor, we had many interesting talks lol.

    But obviously being a kid I was pretty oblivious to fiber intake, water intake, etc..

    But it's just been bugging me lately that those same problems never went away. I eat 25-30g of fiber a day. Pretty much 50/50 between powder and whole food. Drink prolly close to 2 gallons of water a day if not more. Train 1-2 hours in the gym EVERY day 7 days a week, and I still don't get one bowel movement a day. It's usually every 3 days. And when it happens, it literally is like I just gave birth to a baby lizard. Sorry to get so graphic but I mean it's absolutely ridiculous, I've thought about calling up guiness and inquiring about some stats to see if I could qualify.

    Is this a sign I am cursed with a slower than normal metabolism for the rest of my life or what? Or doesn't bowel movements really have any correlation with your metabolism?
    well at least you're not like me and hae to go like 4 times a day.....sucks, especially when you go out on a date and need to go.

  4. Anyone used Chia Seeds for extra fibre?

  5. If you drink coffee, Try and use splenda with fiber, like clock work it keeps me regular. It's the only thing i use splenda for, and it's always worked. I try to keep to a natural fiber intake as much as possible so that it don't become chemically dependent, maybe im wrong.

    I think splenda acts somewhat like insoluble fiber. VERY little of splenda is actually digested by your body, the rest is passed through undigested, which is why it has no caloric value.

    Yeah, I knew there wasn't a caloric value, but the splenda with added fiber, for some reason when added to my coffee, its like clock work being on the can lol

    So not only does it not have any calories, it actually literally makes you expend calories, LOL. Thats quite the combo

  9. Splenda could also be like sorbitol, in that it draws water away from the body (reverse osmosis), acting as a diuretic. I have no information that splenda acts in such a way, but it's a possibility.

  10. polyethylene glycol aka miralax.... people who have to use opiates for chronic pain often get constipation, and it is safe for long term use... it works by drawing more water into the colon

    15 mins after each meal you eat, go sit on the toilet. (even if u dont have to poo)

    this may help you have more frequent bowel movements
    Just be careful of this because it can cause hemorrhoids and that is something you really don't want to deal with. It could end your bodybuilding career.

    I second this. And you clearly drink enough water, so you should be good.

    So the active ingredient in miralax is safe for continuous and long term use?

    yea yea, when i say that, i mean just SIT, not push until you dump no matter what... just sit there for a little, and your stomach will get in tune with it...

    A DOCTOR RECCOMENDED THIS TO ME = good idea

    maybe some extra fish oil will make the poops come

    lol @ your comment.... while its true in a sense, some doctors know less than some people on this forum...

    some doctors actually care, learned shi* in med school, and they have a degree to show they know what they are talking about.



    but to be honest, i think i would put my trust in my doctors hands

    not trust issues, the whole industry is flawed. modern medicine is dollar driven and doctors treat symptoms, not underlying problems. come to a doctor with a cold, he will give u an antibiotic or acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms. come to him with a skin disorder, he will give you a steroid cream to temporarily relieve the symptoms....just so they can return stronger in response to that topical steroid. tell him your child is having trouble in class, he'll prescribe government made cocaine = adderal without even blinking. tell him you are feeling kind of down lately, he'll write you a script for some happy anti-depressants that will make you kill yourself later when you decide to get off. you get a pill, he gets a check from the pharma company and everyone is happy and "healthy".

    then the doctor tells you that you need statins to lower your cholesterol. cholesterol is a body's natural defense and antioxidant, it is not the reason you have heart attacks. sure it may look as plaque in your arteries, but thats because its trying to keep them together after you destroyed them by eating vegetable oils and deep fried $hit. ignorant doctor took 1 class on nutrition and thinks that by lowering your natural cholesterol he will save your life. he tells you to eat less cholesterol even though there is ZERO scientific proof that dietary cholesterol affects blood cholesterol. in fact, the liver will just make more if you eat less eggs or whatever.

    i came to a doctor once with a wicked sinus infection that i was trying to battle and pinkeye that developed because of it. i came primarily for the pinkeye meds- i wanted to just wait the sinus infection out, done it before without antibiotics. got the drops and she gave me amoxicillin for the sinus. highest dose available. i trusted her and took the pills. sinus infection was gone but so was all the good bacteria in my stomach, the antibiotics were so strong they killed it. this resulted in antibiotic caused colitis, cramps 20 $hits a day for 2 months and a 20 pound weight loss. i called and another doctor picked up:

    "hey i think you gave me colitis with the amox"

    "yeah probably, it happens all the time"

    "soo...."

    "you want to come in? we can give you another antibiotic to help colitis"

    Honestly not all doctors are like that though. Once in a while you can find a good one, or if they know that you are an educated consumer their game plan usually changes.

  25. im sorry but what anton just said has now re-confirmed the fact that doctors dont know anything..

    my psyciatrist told me today that welbutrin is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor

    i walked out of the office.... im done

  26. That's right--because YOUR psychiatrist was wrong, ALL doctors don't know ANYTHING
