    After extensive googling I still haven't found nothing on the subject but...


    When following an all-meat diet...is it natural to not have a bowel movement for say...3 weeks?


    Since something like 97% of beef is digestible, that could mean the human body goes (100/3) 33 times less than the normal 1/day to 3/week right?


    Should I get help? Comments are greatly appreciated...


    PS. I'm also been eating about 40% below maintenance but keeping protein at 120g+ (190lbs).

    I'll say it's not natural! Something is very wrong. This isn't a joke, right? No pain?


    I think it would be safe to take some double dose of stool softener (not laxative) to see what happens.

    Did you say 3/week or 3 weeks?? If it's 3 weeks, you'd better see a doctor.

    Three weeks, no joke, no pain, no bloating/gas etc. I've only eaten beef, ostrich or canned salmon, green tea.


    The last time, around early Oct, was the day after a salad.


    Stool softener check, I'll try...though is it safe? For a man-made thing I mean?

    It's that ostrich........


    Well, besides being a really benign product, stool softener is a hell of a lot safer than a three week constipation!


    Have another salad? I'd also try adding some fiber. Most of us here know that fiber isn't necessary and often leads to problems, but here you have a problem and fiber could be a good tool.

    Try 1000-1200 mgs of magnesium citrate.


    You really should get that checked out though.

    It doesn't sound normal to me.


    I went once a day when I ate very high-carb, and I still go once a day now, eating mostly primal.

    Will try the magnesium and stool softeners soon

    Have you tried plums? Have a bowl of plums and a can of coconut milk. You can't go wrong with that.

    Seriously, make sure you drink enough water. Then if you&#39;re still stuck, try prune juice. If that doesn&#39;t work, next step is prunes. Toughest cases require psyllium husk.
