    Pellet Poop

    Primal Fuel
    Sorry for the graphic title but I'm having digestive issues and thought people here could help. I've been eating primal over a month and and so far have had no problem with bowel movements. They're usually pretty normal and regular. But the last day or so they're more like hard nuggets and not going without a fight. I'm not sure what would have caused this. I'm still eating pretty much the same as I have been, I think. Only thing I can think of is I did snack on cheese a bit more than usual one day. Would dairy cause this? Or possibly I've been eating a little less beef and more poultry? Less fat? Still using plenty of oil and butter when cooking though so I don't think my fat intake is low.

    You are dehydrated. Drink more water. Water absorption happens in the large intestine, so, once you have hydrated, the remaining water will soften your stools.

    Pellet poop has been sitting in your intestines the longest; try adding more coconut oil to your daily food consumption. Some of us swear by magnesium citrate before bed.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    Personally, I have foun cheese can be constipating. More water oftn helps. Have a read of this site - it's very interesting and has worked for me.

    I second the recommendations of water and magnesium. I went through a bag of spinach in a day and a half and was right as rain after that.
    I wish I liked to eat liver.

    I've noticed that this happens to me also after I have traveled a lot-- a long car ride or flight, even if I'm pushing water down the whole time, is unpleasant to my digestion. Don't know if that would affect you too, but I thought I'd share.

    I swear by coconut oil and magnesium. Just keeps everything moving. Also have noticed that I don't have as much poo eating this way. I am thinking most of my food is being used by my body.

    Thanks everyone. Yeah, maybe I just need more water. I tend not to get thirsty much, and never remember to drink when not thirsty. So it's not unusual for me to go morning until evening without liquids other than what's in my food. I've already been taking magnesium citrate for ages. Never found that to be "loosening" but I have found magnesium oxide will do that. I don't take the oxide form though, because I've heard it prevents a lot of nutrients from being absorbed.

    I get this as well. Heard it referred to as "traveler's constipation". I think it's not uncommon. Travel is probably my most common cause of bowel problems. I think it's just stress-related for me; I'm a homebody and I don't like sleeping in strange beds.
    Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.
