Also, abdominal organ & muscular core strength, water consumption, exercise such as daily walking @ a good pace, little to no stress during meal times, slow eating & proper chewing all are factors in maintaining regular & easy BMs.

    Since going full primal, pretty quickly I was constipated, which was not ok, not acceptable w/ me at all - due to my disc ruptures & being told specifically by numerous physicians to keep my bowels strong & to keep things moving along daily.

    And then when I maxed my daily consumption of a wide variety of home-fermented foods & probiotic supplements & enzymes, the flood gates reopened & much healing ensued in my gut & blood, body & brain. Now many months later, not maxing out on fermented foods like I used to, but still eating & drinking them daily in lesser but sufficient quantities, I still am moving my bowels 2-3 times a day. Constipation is NOT part of optimal health in my opinion, in my experience nor is it in the views of most every respected health professional I know or health authors/bloggers I read & respect.

    Slow turds do not always equal constipation. You do not know everything, Betorq. You're a pretty cool guy, but you've got to stop pretending you know everything. Pooping 2-3 times a day like you claim sounds like a problem of its own. Maybe you should get help with that.

    When I stay low-carb for more than a week, I get bound up. And that's even with lots of fat in my diet.
    Upping carb consumption for a day gets things back to normal for me.
    Don't know why that is, but that's what happens with me.

    You're not bound up if your food DISSOLVES entirely. Fat turns almost entirely into energy. Try eating only fat for a day or two, and you probably aren't going to take any impressive dumps. That doesn't mean digestion is abnormal.

    I don't see a problem.

    Exactly.

    Yes I think that the CW about "transit time" is silly. Your intestines are not a transport device.

    "The native people" in the 3rd world live on mostly carbs. Who says there is any straining going on? What you have read is right out of the same book that tells you about "healthywholegrains" and eating oat bran.

    I have had some of his fermented stuff and spent a lot of time in the bathroom afterwards. I don' think that is optimal for absorbing nutrition.

    This. The raison d'etre of your digestive system is NOT the production of poop. It is the processing and breaking down of food and then absorbing it as your body's nutrition. If you are eating foods that digest fully and efficiently, there will not be much waste product. This is a good thing. Is is not pathological.

    You guys do realize we're arguing about how often we should poop right? How old are we?

    I go when I wake up, as soon as I get to work, after several bottle of water and after lunch. Today I feel bloated as I only went a little bit and my stomach is achy so I know I'm constipated but not sure why. I had french fries and catfish Sunday while watching football, so maybe that's why???? I know I'm about to have some coffee to see if I can move things along!.
