    Fruits and eggs for breakfast

    Hello,

    I have a problems that is driving me crazy. If I have fruits and eggs in the morning, I usually end up emptying my bowels a few minutes later.

    If I have them at any other time during the day, I'm fine. It's just in the morning.

    I thought it was the bananas but I have cut them out with no effect. I usually also have a cup of tea.

    Any ideas? I'm going to try fruit by themselves to see if maybe it's the combination of eggs and fruits.

    It could be the cup of tea, try cutting that out. Tea can have this effect.

    I'm talking Niagra Falls, not falling pebbles or boulders.

    Umm, stop eating fruits and eggs for breakfast?

    While those are 'traditional' breakfasts, maybe you would have better results from meat/veggie based breakfasts.

    Generally, I don't have to "go" unless I fill up my stomach. When more food comes in, my body tells me old food has to go out. If I don't eat, I won't have to go.

    Moreover, fruit and starch create a lot more bulk. Vegetables and meat...not so much. Brutally unpleasant. There's nothing more satisfying than a post-sweet potato poop.

    Sorry.

    I'm the same way. And I really savor those sweet potato poops. When I have a day of all meat, I think about that sweet potato poop and I just drift away...

    Try pumpkin puree out of a can. It's my personal opinion that neither corn or pumpkin puree is digested by the human body because there is just no difference going in and coming out.

    Actually a good hot coffee is well-known for getting things moving, so I guess hot tea would be similar.

    The good news is you're probably losing weight..?
