    A lot of people have complained about coconut oil making them have the opposite effect, perhaps try a dose of that?

    Fat? Just from egg yolks and the little bit in chicken?

    Try some probiotic supplements. You may be missing some good gut bacteria. My 11 yr old daughter was a once in 5 days person. But she's every day regular with one bottle of robotics. Amazing change.

    I'm not very regular or frequent, maybe 3 times a week? Even with lots of fat (everything cooked in coconut oil, ghee, or tallow) and less fiber, the best I can get to is 'not constipated.' I've heard that consuming a lot of fat gives people diarrhea-- I have yet to experience that. I only start worrying about it when I'm uncomfortably constipated... Changing my diet hasn't changed the pattern.

    what is your alcohol intake? That can sometimes cause issues. Also I second the probiotics!

    Probiotics + fats + magnesium citrate did the trick for me.

    If it helps any, it's certainly something that can change. Most of my younger years and into my 30's I'd often go 4 or 5 days without. Now every day or two.

    I'd say it's more of a concern if this is something that's recently happened but if it's just the way you are then probably no reason to sweat it.

    Some simple things to check:

    1. Yogurt, other fermented foods and perhaps some probiotic caps, just to perk up the flora

    2. Make sure you're getting enough water. Doesn't have to be "8 glasses a day" but if you never drink any straight water try getting into the habit.

    3. "Bulletproof coffee" seems to be effective for some people.

    I could go on but really there's little point in chasing down a cure if there's no problem. If "regular" for you means once a week and nothing has changed, then it's no biggie.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with it personally. I don't poop everyday (and frankly I'm amazed that people do!). It doesn't cause problems and I don't generally have any intestinal issues so.... I guess if it's not broken, don't fix it!

    Hell, for all we know more time in the gut could mean better digestion.
