Eh, I think the key to good stool is soluble fiber (found in apples, oatmeal, psyllium husk, etc), not protein. And a rectal douche can probably clean out the relevant anatomy with less trouble than what you're describing. You're also telling people to shove things in their ass when they're not turned on, which sounds like a bad idea to me.

Here's my typical advice on the subject:
As Dan Savage likes to say: since you wouldn't have oral sex with a mouth full of food, then don't have anal sex with an ass full of poop! Your rectum is the "outbox" of your digestive tract, and it's conveniently about the length of a penis. Whether or not your rectum has stuff in it has a lot to do with diet, with a bit of random chance. You or your partner can put a finger in your ass before going all-in to check the status. If you've had a BM recently and don't feel like you need to go, you're more likely to be in the clear. There are also extra steps you can take to keep clean, though!

Short term prep: anal douche, NOT enema. Anal douching is simply rinsing out your rectum with some water. Since the rectum is about the length of an erect penis, that's the main area you need to worry about. Using a bulb/bottle, rinse with a few ounces of warm water until it comes out clean. The rectum is meant to be empty (unless you need to poop); the rest of your digestive system is not. Do not do an enema to prep for anal sex.

Longer-term prep (at least a day before): eat psyllium husk as your fiber source. For some reason it clumps your stool into the perfect texture so that nothing is left behind. I take it daily and most BMs are followed by one clean wipe. Aim for at least 5 g of husk fiber per day, ramp up to 10 g if you like. Stay hydrated since it tends to soak up water. The easiest fix is to take capsules, though you'll need to take at least a half dozen of them. You can also blend the actual husks into a smoothie as an ingredient. Psyllium husk is also the active ingredient in Metamucil, which is expensive and has a bunch of sugar in it. I've never used that product, but I imagine it's convenient. Other healthy-poop options are apples & oatmeal - these are all good sources of both soluble & insoluble fiber.

Psyllium husk powder
Basically soluble fiber - moves things along in the GI tract and makes for the best poops ever. Learned about it from reddit somewhere and it is awesome. We refer to the period before we were taking it every day to 'the dark times'.

u/kendovzii · 72 pointsr/sex

Same. The more aroused I am the easier it is. The husband is really great at combining foreplay with a gentle push pull motion until he's there. He always waits for me to give the go ahead (usually I just say, "fuck me" or something) before he starts pounding away.

I don't douche, I just pay attention when I poop. If I wipe clean the first time, I consider myself good to go. I am good to go 90% of the time since I take psyillum husk daily (though I dont take as much as it recommends).

Maybe it is because we've been together since highschool, but if I don't feel clean down there I will tell him I destroyed the toilet earlier that day lol.

u/TheResGhost · 70 pointsr/gay_irl

Right? Just take some of these with your other daily vitamins and then you’ll never be dirty again 😇

u/lurkface · 63 pointsr/xxfitness

Hi- I wanted to chime in here because I am a physician and I am also a lady and struggle with the same thing. A lot of time when we are "bloated" from eating and drinking we call it "water weight" and there is some truth to that, but if you want to get down to the nitty-gritty, a big part of the weight gain is actually poop. Yeah I said it. Poop. Seriously. When you eat a bunch of fatty, salty foods that are outside your norm, your gut can get a little backed up from this. This makes us feel bloated and puffy. To take care of business and get back to normal, I would recommend a psyllium fiber supplement- I mix about a tablespoon or two with a splash of OJ and then fill the rest of the cup with water. I give it a good mix and then drink it down. This is NOT a laxative, simply a nice big dose of fiber. This helps your body add bulk and draw water into the stool. You will eliminate the bloat after a nice, big... ahem, well you get the idea. Hope this helps!! This is the one I use

u/PrismaCarnage · 21 pointsr/soylent

I got a bidet. Changed my life, no exaggeration. Wipe first for the big stuff, then use bidet fully, then wipe again one time to get the water off. My toilet paper usage is way down, and my butthole is never agitated and sore.

I also take soluble fiber pills to make it be normal coming out. It's no big deal to me like it is to you. Taking 3-6 of them a day is way easier than trying to incorporate some traditional food into my diet. The fact that it's soluble is fine. There is a definite difference in the solidness due to the fiber pills.

Edit: added a link to the bidet I got.

u/chimeraguy · 16 pointsr/keto

Holy crap, what a coincidence that this thread popped up. Keto has been fucking my stomach up for over a month. I have had the most horrible runny sticky industrial adhesive shit. 3 days ago I just couldn't take it anymore so I bought a 24oz bag of pure Psyllium Husk Powder.

OMG, everything is better now. I have actual turds again instead of just sticky soft serve icecream.

I'll be taking this stuff everyday from now on. This should be part of everybody's basic kit when they start Keto.

u/PugsandDrugz · 14 pointsr/keto

Excellent question it is psyllium husk powder. I believe you could purchase psyllium husks and powder them yourself but it's not expensive to buy it pre-powdered. I buy mine off amazon and have found it to be handy in multiple keto recipes.

>Is it a terrible idea to take a laxative and drink mostly water and protein for a day to kind of "cleanse" (read: push all the shit out so to speak)?

this is useless, just add fiber to your diet for intestinal health. I use this. abd anything would work tho.

u/sean_marris · 10 pointsr/gaybros

Thirded. I love this stuff.

This is the Psyllium Husk that I take:

I find that it works way better than Metamucil or Citrucel. However, you have to be careful when starting a fiber regimen. I currently take 3 pills with every meal, but it is best to start low and increase the amount of fiber you consume over a period of weeks to avoid unwanted bloating and cramping.

Psyllium husk is a lifesaver. Take 2 spoonfuls every day and you'll have the perfect poos. Even after a day of beer and fast food I didn't have any problems.

I got this huge thing of psyllium husks for only $16 and it lasts for months on end.

u/nick_diesel · 7 pointsr/Fitness

It all depends on your tastes. I use apple juice for when I'm only taking fiber (psyllium husks) because it masks the "earth" flavor very well. If I'm replacing a meal, I simply mix it with my meal replacement and drink it all together. I use a larger 24ish oz shaker bottle filled to the brim with milk, almond milk, meal replacement and fiber. It's works wonders when I'm pressed for time in the morning. It won't last as long as something solid but it does the trick.

Psyllium husks can be found on amazon (now foods). It's primarily use is as a fiber, and a byproduct of that is fullness.

Yohimbe is commonly found in weight loss supplements, men's "virility" products, or ways to stay awake. I use it instead of caffeine because caffeine makes me jittery and anxious. Yohimbe does all the good for me and no bad. (also, anecdotal but... It works for bedroom performance pretty well).
Yohimbe "bark" contains yohimbine, the actual chemical. Don't go getting the HCL and put a scoop in your drink, because you'll most likely end up in the hospital. Yohimbine is usually in 5/10mg doses. Tiny amounts. Kills my appetite and hypes me up. Probably my most favored "drug".

Edit: psyllium husks and yohimbe have different purposes, but could be used together or at different times to help reduce hunger. I'm unsure if the fiber would or could affect absorption of yohimbe. Don't take fiber in pill form because you'd end up taking like 20 pills. Just use the powdered type ( and you can probably pick up yohimbe at most drug stores in the vitamin area. If not you can amazon/Google that too.

u/Cyclo89 · 7 pointsr/askgaybros

I take these, three capsules twice a day every day, and I am always good to go haha. Definitely recommend as a daily thing.

u/urgentsandwich · 6 pointsr/Twitch


Also if you're an irregular streamer, might I suggest a product that would help?

u/MassivelyMini · 6 pointsr/xxfitness

Sometimes when you cut you eat "volume" type foods, like all the fibrous veggies. Remember too much fiber can back you up.... Which is why some people have problems with quest bars. There are 2 types of fiber.

I take 3 fiber pills in the morning. This keeps me pretty regular, regardless of what I eat. But it has taken trial with my body to figure out what works.

Someone mentioned Smooth Move tea. This is great, but I wouldn't recommend it all the time. Other things that help me go is peppermint tea, or ginger tea (esp if I'm gassy). Kombucha also usually helps. Maybe you could try a pro-biotic. What do you eat at maintenance that you dont eat on a cut? Dairy?? Greek yogurt? Could be something as simple as that....

u/Vihzel · 6 pointsr/gaybros

Have you ever tried psyllium husk capsules? You can buy them easily from Amazon, which would be the cheapest route. I took this, and my bowel movements became shockingly clean. Literally like one, two, maybe three wipes at most.

No matter how much regular fiber I was consuming (I eat a lot of whole grains, whole fruits, and vegetables), my bowel movements didn't compare to how clean they were when I was taking the psyllium husk capsules.

Those capsules are basically the same capsules you can find specifically targeted to gay men, albeit much cheaper.

My only real concern is how my body would hold up if I were to use that amount of psyllium husk fiber per day for a long period of time. What's weird is that some reputable companies will state that it's not for long term use, while other reputable companies will not have that warning label at all even though they have identical daily fiber intakes. After much research, it seems to me that companies that have higher doses of psyllium husk within fewer capsules have the warning while companies that have smaller doses of psyllium husk in more capsules don't have the warning. Downside of the latter is having to take more capsules per day, which would be annoying.

I did have one side effect from taking psyllium husk capsules, and that was pretty strong stomach pain, but that was due to not taking the recommended amount per day I believe. When I took the recommend dosage amount, the pain was nonexistent. What was really great was that I had no bloating at all as you might expect from a fiber pill. It seems to me that psyllium husk does not cause bloating because it doesn't release gases as it simply expands in your body and doesn't get digested by the bacteria.

u/mmhmoist · 5 pointsr/entwives

I definitely think if you stopped in January, with beginning to try in May, your system should be clear.

I like to do a natural detox about everything 3 months (when the seasons change), for 3-5 days. You could add several different types of detoxing after you quit smoking to really, really clean up.

I add a spoonful each of bentonite and psyllium husk to a glass of cranberry juice. (It can be any juice, but cranberry is strong - to mask out weird tastes - and it's known for being "good" for feminine issues. And I love the taste.) It's super sugary though, and cutting sugars is a good part of a detoxing, so I'd water it down. Mix everything up well with a spoon, and drink up.

You could also add Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) into your life, if you haven't be acquainted already. It's amazing.
It's can be crazy disgusting at first, but the results are wild. It will absolutely impact your:

  • digestion
  • bowel movements (can cause diarrhea if you take a lot at first; work up to 1 shot glass of it)
  • energy

    It's recommended before you eat in the morning and/or afternoon. A shot every morning will start to make changes within a day. Do half a shot to start, mixed with water. You'll want a chaser of at least more water, if not something juice to get that taste out of your mouth.
    I used to do this as part of a healthy weight loss plan. It helped with my appetite and digestion, and honestly gave me a lot of diarrhea. I realized I was just taking too much, so cut back, and it now really helps if I'm ever constipated. You will likely really want natural and safe ways to help with constipation with your preggers. You will likely be crazy constipated often.

    Lastly, a actual "detox" kit is always good. These are my 2 favorites, but there are more out there that are good. Inner Cleanse is the cheaper (1/2 the cost), and it's gentle. Like ACV, it can cause diarrhea. Read and follow the directions.
    The other one is Raw Cleanse. It's more complicated and I found it pretty gross, but if you can stomach the process (or find a middle ground with it, like adding juice), it's quite effective. Both of these kits are different, but their ingredients have detoxing elements that nothing else so far has offered.

    Also, I recommend drinking kombucha at least weekly. IMHO, this is one of the best brands for kombucha (besides locally made goodness). There are a few other brands that are good, but watch our for the sugar.

    So, if it's not apparent by now, all of these detoxing, in some way, stimulate you to ultimately poop a lot. Trying all these different ways of detoxing will not only detox you up, but you can find one detox that you prefer, and then do that one occasionally. I do a super big detox, as in all the things described above combined, maybe every 18. mos - 2 years, and then just one of those (cranberry juice blend or detox pills) every ~3 months.

    Hope this helps! Congrats on planning a family. <3

I recommend taking a soluble fiber, such as Psyllium Husk or Acaica Senegal!

They expand to ~10x their dry-volume in water (e.g. - in your stomach) & they slow digestion.

Effect: More full + full longer (win + win)

Dosage: I take ~5-10g/Fiber with a meal (this depends on the size of the meal and how much water I'm drinking - bigger meal = more fiber), usually 2x daily. Works great for me and my wife.

Tips: Drink extra water when you take soluble fibers; they absorb a lot of water. I'd recommend ~2oz water/1g of fiber.

Psyllium Husk Capsules

I used to have to run into the woods once a week or so, after I started taking these (1 each night) I only have to meet with the trees once every couple months. Far and away best thing I've done was starting to take these pills.

u/coletain · 5 pointsr/HomeImprovement

You don't need a new toiler, you need some fiber.

If you been binge eating taco bell or whatever and you know your gonna drop a massive juicy deuce just lay down a strip of TP on top of the water before you do the deed.

u/finallyoverit · 4 pointsr/stopdrinking

I had the same reaction when I did that math. Eye-opening, to say the least.

For the smoothie, you can mix it up, but I go with this basic scheme every day:

1-2 tablespoons of psyllium husk powder

1-2 tablespoons of ground flax meal

a handful of fresh spinach (trust me, you won't taste it, but it adds a LOT of nutrients)

a cup or so of frozen fruit of your choice. I have used almost everything I can find: pineapple, banana, strawberries, blueberries, apples, pears, peaches, etc. If I can't find it frozen, I buy a bunch of whatever fruit is on sale, cut it up and freeze it myself.

Fill it up with a liquid of your choice to make sure it blends well - I use unsweetened vanilla flavored almond milk because it's low calorie and I'm trying to lose weight, but I've also tried orange juice, drinkable yogurt, kefir, and other such things. You can use whatever liquid you want though.

And that's it. Blend it up into smoothie form and enjoy. One caveat: drink/eat it quickly and with a glass of water - the psyllium husk absorbs a ton of liquid and it can be a little thicker than you want if you let it sit for more than 20-30 minutes. The fiber takes up volume in your stomach as it absorbs water, it keeps you ahem regular, and everything in the recipe is so nutrient dense that it gives your body a lot to chew on, so to speak. A lot of the ingredients for these smoothies come off of this list the ANDI scale which is a rough guide to how much nutrition you get per calorie out of certain foods. Higher scores = more nutrient density = higher efficiency diet.

Disclaimer: if it works for you, awesome! If not, try something else, or meet with a nutritionist. I used the advice of a health counselor service I get through work, but if you go to any Whole Foods, you can schedule an appointment with their "healthy eating specialist" for free, and they can be remarkably helpful.

u/wantingsilence · 4 pointsr/ibs

Fiber can be beneficial for some IBS sufferers - I'm not claiming otherwise.

What I don't like is this company using religion to push it's absurdly overpriced fiber. I don't know exactly what capsule size they're using, so I'll assume size 0 (most common). Size 0 will hold around half a gram, depending.

These thieves sell a 270 capsule bottle for 149$. In other words, approximately 135 grams of fiber at $1.10 per gram.

Now let's compare another brand - 500 capsules at 500 mg each, 250 grams of fiber. Cost is $13.99, or $0.05 per gram.

That's not even the cheapest: if you get plain bulk powder not in capsules, 680 grams for $11.99, or a bit under $0.02 per gram.

u/spectre323 · 4 pointsr/Fitness

Best supplement I added was for fiber. Psyllium Husk is amazing. It takes 3-4 days before it starts taking effect but man best dumps ever.

u/NeptunesCar · 4 pointsr/reactiongifs

Alternatively you can try taking Psyllium Husk before you go to bed. I use 3 heaping tablespoons mixed with orange juice (recently switched to lemon juice and water to cut down on the sugar.) I used to have perpetual constipation and mud-shit despite my substantial fiber intake. Now, my shits have satisfying bulk and there's very little wiping involved. The mud-shit is encased in the mucilage formed by the Psyllium Husk; the Husk is not digested and has a purely mechanical action in the body. It is perfectly safe and can also help reduce cholesterol levels.

Such. Satisfying. Shits.

Edit: Use plenty of water/juice when mixing your Husk. Mix with a little liquid initially to form a sludge at the bottom of your glass, then mix with the rest of the liquid. This prevents caking/dust. Good technique with hot chocolate as well. Staying well hydrated throughout the day helps immensely.

u/Zurevu · 4 pointsr/Supplements

It doesn't mix with water as well as Metamucil but it's drinkable.

Metamucil makes plain psyllium husk too but I can't find it online for some strange reason.

Yerba Prima Psyllium Whole Husks Colon Cleanser, 2 Count

Start taking this. A lot of gay people use it so that they're so regular they can have anal at any time without worrying about using an enema. This apparently gives poops that you don't even need to wipe. Hope this helps.

u/redherpbluederp · 3 pointsr/keto

Flaxseed meal has a lot of fiber. You can put it in cottage cheese, or you can make One Minute Muffins, and do lots of other things with it. Even making a sort of porridge with it.

One of my go-to things is this. I will either put it in my occasional protein shakes or make a pancake with it. Recipe is super duper easy. Mix one egg and one rounded tsp of the stuff. Done. I'll multiply that by 3 and make a big pancake.

Good luck pooing!

u/heartbrokenandok · 3 pointsr/proED

They make different ones, like flavored ones or ones that dissolve completely so you can't tell a taste or texture difference, but those usually have extra calories for the same amount of fiber.

This is the one I get:

It definitely makes the water thicker and it has kind of a nutty flavor to it, but I kind of like that. I'll usually drink it slowly over about 30 minutes in the evening. You really do need to make sure you drink alot of water with it though as the water makes the fiber swell, and it can be a choking hazard if you don't drink at least 8oz of water with it. Like I said, I usually mix it into at least 0.5L.

u/academiamia · 3 pointsr/entwives

Hey! OK. I'll try to give you some insight!
(I'm also detoxing right now, as i'm also job hunting. Yay for us ;)

Are you using anything to help you detox, aka pills or fiber or something?
Here's what I use: (and it's all natural)

Detox Pills


Ultimate Cleanse

For these next two, what I do is mix them together in a glass of cranberry juice in the morning and at night, following the directions on the label of starting small and slowly increasing the amount. For short periods (which I would do right at the beginning, for a few days) you can do use the bentonite like 5 times a day (so use it without the pysllium in the afternoon), then cut back to once in the morning, once at night again.



Both of these combined = a lot of fiber and cleansing. You may get constipated, you may be pooping a lot. I wouldn't recommend doing them both for the first time, at the same time. Try the bentonite and psyllium first, do it for 5 days or so, then the pills.

  1. There isn't a way to really speed up the process, it's more like you just want to hit it HARD. Drink water, no trees or booze, exercise are all great. Employing detox methods like the ones I mentioned above can help kick it in the pants.

  2. I've been able to pass a test within 2 weeks by cutting out all bud and doing this regime + lots of water, general exercise, eating well, etc. I have never been a very heavy smoker (I'm 5'6, 150lb, smoke 1/8th a month). So, take that for what it's worth.

  3. I think less fat = faster metabolism, and less room for stuff to stick around. I know NOTHING, but I'd assume less fat would be a good thing.

  4. While you're at the store getting those awesome detox supplies I recommended or looking on amazon, pick up some melatonin, and maybe some other natural sleep meds. Melatonin is GREAT and has always helped me for short term sleep issues. Other sleep meds should definitely work, especially if you're never used them before. ;)

    Hope this helps girl!
u/Nubbies907 · 3 pointsr/TopsAndBottoms

I take the recommended dose every morning. But I would start out with 1 tablespoon to a good pint of water or juice. Do that for a week and then kick up to 2 tablespoons.

From time to time I won't take it for about a week or two just to let everything go back to normal.

These images should give you and idea of what it's about.

I order it from Amazon. But word from the wise, don't waste your time or money with the pills or anything else. Brand is your own choosing, but always make sure it is "Whole Husk". There are also other supplements that I have heard people having better success with as well.

u/JohnnyRockets911 · 3 pointsr/ketochow

It's not a flavoring or syrup per se, it's a fiber supplement. Here's an Amazon link: You can probably find a cheaper generic brand at any grocery store near you.

u/Fitztastical · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Get a fiber supplement, it keeps you regular and clean. Douching becomes super easy and super fast. I used to take Pure For Men but now I take these Psyllium Husk capsules. I'm currently testing them so I haven't decided wether they're better though.

u/DausenWillis · 3 pointsr/keto

Do you know psyllium husk? There are psyllium husk tablets, and I have found that taking 2 in the morning with a BIG glass of water and 2 right before bed with a BIG glass of water can alleviate both constipation and diarrhea.

Here's an example of what I am talking about:

Yep, the mud butt and shitting bricks can hit you at any time, but it really does get much better over time. I've done keto for well over a year, and now I could be the poster child for the Bristol Scat Scale.

u/Mantttt · 3 pointsr/askgaybros

6 pills a day, averages out to this is 15 bucks for 82 days or something around that lol

u/Manafont · 3 pointsr/Fitness

I would definitely go powder to save money. This is the best deal I've came across so far. That should last you a while.

u/SpaceStationEarth · 3 pointsr/keto

I'll third this comment. Whole Psyllium Husk makes you nice and regular...almost life changing and I'm not exaggerating. It's also good to take with water about 30 minutes before a meal to fill you up before you eat. Though a word of warning, it swells in water...great for filling up your stomach but if you let it sit it will swell up before you drink it and then you'll have to eat it like cream of wheat.

I recommend working your way up from 1 tablespoons to 2 then to 3...if you increase the dose too fast, your body biome won't acclimate properly and you'll get loose shits and instead of nice logs. The cheapest I've found is the Now Whole Psyllium Husk on Amazon.

I also use the Now Probiotic.. I'm now very regular with a good BM or two everyday and no more IBS or hemorrhoids.

u/-Chemist- · 3 pointsr/soylent

I would also add some fiber for the sake of your bowels but really everyone I know who's tried to do liquid only gives up after a couple of weeks. It sounds really convenient, but you'll be surprised how much you miss real food. All-liquid meals never seem to make you feel full either, even when you're hitting all your macros.

So this may be more of a PSA than anything else, but is added to my ever growing list of 'things you should not do without paying full attention':

So I recently ordered some psyllium husk as high protein + inconsistent fiber intake is a recipe for occasional trouble internally.

So today I was making a post-workout shake while responding to work email on my phone, and just looked at the box quick to double check the serving size as that was how i already had it logged previously in my tracking, and I always add my shake ingredients while the blender container is on the food scale. Somewhere in the 10 sec between confirming what was on the box, and actually adding to the blender, my mind went 'yeah 20g, thats right' ... but its 5g, 20 cal... lets just say i had to go back and add an additional cup and a half of almond milk to my tracking in order to thin out the mix enough (cause I mean, I wasn't about to throw it out when its already blended up) to get it down.

Upside is, for anyone worried about not feeling full when drinking calories, I found an answer for that... I think dinner is going to be much later than normal

u/splendid_serendipity · 3 pointsr/ketouk

H&B's prices are ridiculous. I got it from [amazon] ( I got a small bag (100g) from ebay for just over £3 first, just to see if I liked working with it. 100g lasted me through about 6 or 7 recipes.

u/cryospam · 2 pointsr/keto

Hey, I'm like you with that almond flour...

Try swapping 1 TBSP of Almond Flour for 1 TBSP of 0 carb cookies and cream (or any other flavor that goes well with chocolate) protein powder.

Swap 1 TBSP of the Unsweetened Coco Powder for another 1 TBSP of 0 carb cookies and cream protein powder

Swap 2 TSP Coconut Flour for 2 TSP Psyllium Husks.

Go from 1.5 TBSP of splenda to 2 TBSP to retain the sweetness.

You have suddenly made that 7g into like 1.8g and you jacked the fiber up by a LOT...they taste delicious (I double this recipe and eat it for dinner sometimes)

u/cal_student37 · 2 pointsr/askgaybros

Note that if you buy the pill form the dossage is really low. Each pill is about 1.5% of your daily fiber need so you'd need to take literally a handful each day to have some noticeable effect. The loose form (that you mix in with water) seems to allow you to easily take a bigger dosage.

u/L4syth · 2 pointsr/jpouch

My first year, I was up 2-3 times a night, and when I mentioned this to my surgeon at the time of my annual check up, he said “take an Imodium before bed.” So I started doing that and got it down to once a night. I’m still up and going once a night, but it’s needing to pee that wakes me up...and it’s just easier to go ahead and evacuate while I’m at it 😉

As for your second question, I soiled myself in the middle of the night 2-3 times in the past 2 1/2 years, but not full on shit myself. When it happened, it was typically the result of being extra reckless with eating/drinking whatever I want, subsequently having a lot of gas churning around while I’m asleep, and my body letting it pass...with me discovering in the morning it wasn’t all gas LOL

Are you taking any fiber supplements like Metamucil? My surgeon recommended I take it with every meal because it slows down the digestive tract, and it really does work. I hate the powder and take the capsules, and because I’m cheap I get a generic from amazon: My surgeon wants me to take it 3x a day (once before every meal) but I’m lazy and typically only do it when eating some I know will mess me up, like salad! It does a good job of firming things up from watery diarrhea to an oatmeal consistency, which means less trips to the bathrooms do leas chance of any gas being accompanied by leakage. Hope that helps!

u/MisterAnd0 · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I had the same problem once I increased my protein intake to 1.5g/lbs of BW. I then started to take some psyllium husk capsules before meals and the problem was solved.

u/Natriana · 2 pointsr/fasting

I suffered really horrible diarrhea during my first 3 day fast, to the point that I couldn't trust if it felt like I just needed to pass gas o.O Someone mentioned taking psyllium husk to help regulate your system. I've been using that the last three days and I've had zero diarrhea and two regular bowel movements. Here's what I'm using (I've used it regularly in the past to help lower cholesterol too):

u/ClimbOnGoodBuddy · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I have basically the same exact story as you, also 6ft, 210 lbs, 20ish % bf. I ordered only to realize that their serving size was way smaller than I thought. They work fine, but it means taking 6 in the morning first thing and 6 at night before I go to bed, with a lot of water with each serving. It comes out to ~4g of fiber a day.

The recommended amount appears to be ~30g a day, so I don't know if this is actually helping or if it's just a placebo. I just realized that I didn't really answer your question, but this is what I've been doing.

u/chadnik · 2 pointsr/vegan

u/reggae_muffin · 2 pointsr/keto

Try using something like Benefiber or Metamucil. Alternatively, add high fiber veggies to your diet - things like spinach, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts etc.

u/Haversoe · 2 pointsr/keto

I just order this fiber supplement. It's pure psyllium, unlike Metamucil which is full of sugar (including the sugar-free version).

For vitamins, I take a Centrum and I don't even take it every day. I eat 95% my carbs from plant sources, so I mostly get what I need and the vitamin pill's only there to make up the difference, not be the main source.

I have been taking a combo vitamin-D/calcium pill. There's not much sun these days and I don't eat that much dairy, so I think it's important to supplement these.

Fish oil's pretty good too, but it's expensive. I prefer to spend the money on fresh fish, personally.

I don't have experience with it but look into Psyllium Husk Powder. I found one on amazon.

If you want to avoid blood red shits and searing pain then take psyllium husk powder right after you eat. This stuff. Have about 3 tablespoons of that mixed with water and you won't even feel the spicy food pass through, or out, of you. It also cures diarrhea and constipation, and makes it so you only have to wipe once (if at all). Basically, it's fucking magical.

Even with ample water and eating lots of fibrous veggies, I've always had issues. It's necessary for me to supplement whole psyllium husks. I've gotten it off Amazon and iHerb. I take 2 servings daily a few hours before bedtime, which is about 14g fiber. It really helps keep me regular and the poops are fantastic. Feel so clean and very minimal wiping.

u/throwawayq42 · 2 pointsr/sex

Wow thank you for the indepth answer! Didn't realise that it was possible to overdouche or that I knew so little about my own body so thank you for that information.

Looking on amazon, I've found this ( which seems to be the husks already in powder form; would using this be just as good as using actual husks that I would blend myself?

If so, how would you recommend taking it? Put it in a glass of water and down it? Mix it into food?

Thank you for your advice, its super helpful and also really reassuring that I won't need to go to a doctor instantly and that theres something I can try at home first.

u/yourfuneralpyre · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Want to add fiber to your diet? I was taking psyllium husk powder for a while as a fiber supplement. It has a grain flavor and the texture isn't the best but it's pretty cheap and it works.

This is not the kind I was taking but it's similar. 24 ounce would last a long time. Make sure you mix with a full glass of water and it does get stuck pretty well to whatever you mix it in, so I recommend using (and reusing) a plastic cup and spoon until they get too gross. Then throw away. You can add it to other foods too, but I prefer just chugging it. I would take 1teaspoon a day.

The reason I don't take a fiber supplement anymore is because I eat plenty of fiber now, but this stuff really works!

u/itsjustmybabyfat · 2 pointsr/loseit

Yep, this was happening to me every weekend after eating super clean Monday thru Friday and then eating one "cheat" meal out Saturday night/Sunday brunch. Anything high fat would go right through me and high carb would constipate me for a day or two.

I happened to be visiting my parents and my dad (who lost about 50 lbs in the last couple years by eating healthy and walking) said he'd had the same issue when he started eating healthier, and recommended that I look at my fiber and probiotic intake. The idea is that your gut bacteria is accustomed to working a certain way on the days you eat very healthy - they get very efficient at processing veggies, simple foods, etc. Then you throw a wrench in everything by eating a ton of carbs or a high fat meal, and your stomach starts freaking out and wondering how it's going to process this meal that it forgot how to process. Your body just goes in to panic mode and wants to get the stuff out of you as soon as possible.

For me, the only way to avoid the instant gut punch after eating a meal out, is:

  • Obviously, try to make a better choice of what to eat. I'm not saying I never eat "bad" when I eat out, but instead of the fatty pork belly, maybe I should choose the dryer, leaner lemongrass pork. That sort of compromise. Know your triggers.

  • Take two psyllium husk capsules, like these, per day (more on days I am fasting/dieting and don't get as much fiber through my food)

  • Take a daily probiotic (with at least 1 billion+ organisms) to help build up healthy bacteria in your gut

    Since adding these two daily supplements I feel like I've got a little bit of a "cushion" in my stomach when I eat - I no longer have to rush home right after every Saturday night cheat meal. There are still trigger foods that I know I just shouldn't eat because they are WAY too fatty or sweet, but the supplements have allowed me to eat a little more liberally every once in a while, which is nice when you don't want your diet to take over your entire life!
u/YELLING_IN_YOUR_HEAD · 2 pointsr/EDAnonymous

Sure! Here's what I've personally tried so far.

Sunergetic Brand. I've purchased this brand the most and it's what sold me on the supplement in the first place. Though, $20 might be steep for some people for only 240 capsules. (At four capsules a day, that's a 2-month supply.)

[NOW Foods](NOW Supplements, Psyllium Husk 700 mg, 180 Capsules This is a well known brand and a good "try and see" option, imo. If you don't see the desired results, then you're only out $10 for 180 capsules, with Prime. The dosage is slightly lower, as well. They also offer a loose powder version that's excellent for keto baking recipes.

When I'm running low again, I think I'll see what's available outside of Amazon. I haven't checked GNC or Vitamin Shoppe, but I'm hoping they might offer something that's more .mg-per-pill at a reasonable price. I should warn you that these capsules are not small, and four of them in one sitting can be un-fun if you're less than a stellar pill-swallower.

Most of the bottle instructions will tell you: Always chase with an entire glass of water!

u/Betaateb · 2 pointsr/keto

Cut out the MCT for a week and see how it goes. While getting fat adapted a lot of people get diarrhea, MCT is only going to compound that issue. Back off of it for now, then once fat adapted try adding it back in slowly, if you need the extra calories. Bullet proof coffee is great for keto, but is a serious chunk of calories easily 300+ for most recipes. Make sure you are accounting for it in your calorie count as well.

Generally BP coffee is a meal replacement, or for people in maintenance on keto who struggle to get to maintenance calorie levels. If you are drinking a BP coffee with a meal for breakfast you are likely getting 800+ calories for breakfast, putting you way ahead on your calories for the day, going to be hard to stay under your maintenance calories.

At your stats your BMR is ~2000 calories, to sustain meaningful weight loss you will need to stay under 2000 calories. If your job is highly active you may get a total loss of 2500-3000, if it is more sedentary you could be as low as 2400. I would say with your stats you should be shooting for ~1800 calories a day. BP coffee is going to take up ~ 1/6th of that.

Get some Whole Psyllium husk to drink once a day to get your fiber up (I like this brand personally).

Hey there, we have very similar ages, weights, and bowel problems! I am still trying to figure out some of my issues, but my main triggers are caffeine, alcohol, fried foods, and STRESS. I also get terrible stomach aches from higher fat foods like avocados and nut butters. Even when I avoid these completely I still have some problems. I have been dealing with this for a while and like with you, doctors have not been helpful.

Have you ever tried taking psyllium every day? I use this one:

I mix a heaping tablespoon with a full glass of water after dinner every night. It helps clean out the colon and "bulk up" poo so you are more regular and have less diarrhea. It makes going to the bathroom so much easier for me. I still have problems sometimes, but it's nice to only have diarrhea twice per week rather than 10 times. I've read a lot about psyllium online; most people rave about it but some people say it can make things like bloating and diarrhea worse.

u/glacierwookie · 1 pointr/keto

u/pm079 · 1 pointr/vegetarian

So if you're trying to add mass/strength, your biggest concern with going vegetarian is probably going to be getting enough protein. I try to take in like ~200g/day. You can calculate what you need here.

I personally get most of my protein from protein shakes. I use pea protein exclusively, this brand. Unfortunately, it comes from China but I can't pass on the price point. I also add peanut flour, cocoa powder, bananas, flax seed meal (good source of omega-3's), psyllium husk fiber (helps to slow down digestion of protein), BCAA's, creatine, and beta-alanine all in almond milk. The reason for some of those supplements can be found here.

Thanks to the fiber and the flax seed, it gets super thick almost like pudding if you let it sit. Usually, I'll mix in cold brewed coffee to get the consistency I want. It's really good. I drink like ~48 ounces a day, every day. Still have yet to get tired of it.

As far as recipes go, I try to eat high protein meals usually with beans/legumes and quinoa. I use tofu or tempeh as meat substitutes quite a bit too. I eat a lot of chili and curries. My instant pot (pressure cooker) is always getting used.

I also supplement with this multivitamin.

In response to the anti-protein focus comment, I guess I would say that I eat at a calorie deficit so it's hard to hit my protein targets unless I supplement. However, you should still count your macros at least at first to make sure you're getting in the range of where you should be.

If texture doesnt bother you get the powdered kind from walmart - 100% psyllium husk equate brand. I take 2 tsp at night (directions say more often but...) and I poop nice and clean every morning. Comes out solid, quick, one wipe and done. Very cost effecient but the texture isn't great. Kind of like drinking sand?

Hi Julie,

It took me over a year to alleviate most of my constipation but all the above definitely helped.

-Slippery Elm - 1 Capsule 2x a day - taken between meals. Good for calming inflammation in stomach and helps repair and coat the stomach lining. Also helps with constipation and diarrhea. Makes a big difference on settling down stomach and soothing stomach pains. It can lower blood pressure.

-Psyllium Husk - 1 Capsule 2x a day (for moderate to severe constipation) - taken between meals. A gentle insoluble fiber and really does a good job of moving things along.

-Marshmallow Root - 1 capsule 2x a day - taken between meals. Similar to Slippery Elm benefits. Very good for stomach lining. It can lower blood pressure.

-Magnesium Oil Spray - Good for calming the body and for aiding digestion. I do 6-8 sprays on my stomach and chest before bed. Helps constipation and aid digestion.

-Triphala - Generally good for digestion. Helps fight H Pylori and helps with Detoxification. I take 1/8 to 1/4th tsp every night. Mixes in water.

-Tulsi (Holy Basil) - Good for all around health and promote energy and sleep. I take 1/8 tsp every night. Mixes in water.



They've been pivotal in restoring more balance to my stomach, digestion, and overall health.

I've resolved on taking three different probiotic products because variety can help crowd out H Pylori and heal your stomach overall.

-Custom Probiotics - 11 Strain Probiotic Powder - 100 Gram
It seems expensive but it's super cost efficient and lasted me about year which is amazing.
For dosage, I only use the small plastic spoon that it comes with because the standard dosage of "260 billion" per day seems a little too intense to me.
I started with taking 25 billion (one small plastic spoonful) per day mixed in water. Stomach upset and gas is normal at the beginning stages so starting small helps your stomach get acclimated to the new strains.
I'm up to 100 billion per day (4 small plastic spoonful) now, 30 minutes to 1 hour before a meal.

-Renew Life Extra Care Probiotic - Ultimate Flora - 150 billion - 30 Capsules
This probiotic is amazing for adding tremendous amount of variety to the strains in your stomach. It also contains "L Reuteri" which is effective in reducing and suppressing H Pylori.
Whenever I start a new bottle, I start with approximately 1/4 capsule (I open up the capsule and pour some it's contents in water) for the first week and move up to 1/2 capsule till the end of the bottle. Makes it last longer and because I'm already supplementing with another probiotic.

-Bronson Saccharomyces Boulardii - 20 Billion - 180 capsules
Good for restoring balance to gut biome. I start out with half a capsule (approx 5 billion) in water at mealtime, once per day.


Timing of Probiotics


This was a super tricky thing to figure out. A lot of conflicting reports on what time you should take it, with food, without food, at bedtime, or first thing in the morning.

Here's the best two times that have worked for me. I go back and forth to accommodate schedule changes if need be:

  1. 30 Minutes Before Breakfast - Custom Probiotics and Renew Life mixed in water.
    Take S Boulardii with other food enzymes. Make sure to take herbal antibiotics at another meal time.

  2. 30 Minutes Before Dinner - Custom Probiotics and Renew Life mixed in water.
    S Boulardii with other food enzymes. Make sure to take herbal antibiotics at another meal time.

Eating more fiber , and by extension taking a Fiber pill (and drinking lots of water) can help you to "pass more matter" therefore there's less left behind and therefore less mess .

I use this one it's much cheaper than the other brands . Just make sure you drink a LOT of water often and read the package to see how many to take

You can also try the Metamucil Psyllium wich has different stuff but costs a whole lot more.

You can also time your bowel movements, have intercourse in between them.

I also don't do full enemas since they bring the stuff that isn't well formed yet from deep in the intestine, I only use a few ounces of water to dislodge stuff and repeat 3-4 times until its clean.

I am very sorry you have to go through this :( If it makes you feel any better, I feel your embarrassment. I have sweating issues. I sweat more than most people and pretty much no deodorant works for me. I've even tried prescription antiperspirant that burnt my armpits. It embarasses me greatly but isnt enough to be a medical condition.. so. You're not alone. Anyways! Back to you!

Did you know they make fiber pills?

NOW Psyllium Husk 500 mg,500 Capsules

I bought those a month ago and I've been taking 6 a day. 3 with lunch and 3 with dinner. It helps you poop and when you wipe, your butt is pretty much already clean. You do have to drink a bottle of water with them though or risk constipation. For me, I just take the pills and down the water as fast as I can. I HATE drinking water but these pills make me drink more than ever.

Some tips that have helped me drink more water: invest in a 32oz water bottle. When you wake up, down a standard size (16oz) bottle of water. When you're at work, drink a full 32oz bottle of water. After work, drink another standard size bottle of water. Drink more if you can but if not, this should be plenty to sustain your body. I drink flavored water in my 32oz bottle at work to encourage me even more.

Also, have you heard of PooPourri? I haven't used it, but maybe you should look into it! I've heard nothing but rave reviews. You spray it into the toilet before you go and then after you flush, it makes the room smell amazing.

Even better than an enema (and safer/healthier) are fiber tablets like these. If you take these things consistently you'll be much cleaner down there. The fiber binds together your poo so you can evacuate it more easily when you go #2 without leaving any residue behind. Trust me, it works.

u/badtzmartin · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Take about a dozen Psyllium fiber pills before you eat. Seriously. Your poop will be much harder and leave (hopefully) zero acidic residue on your posterior.

I buy the generic stuff too. It's totally fine.

These are the ones I get. 500 caps for the price of 240 caps of metamucil at the drug store. Free shipping if you have prime / live in the US, etc. Hope this helps.

u/ayemateys · 1 pointr/migraine

Hey there, I found relief for this annoying eating every 3 hours merry go round so I thought I’d check back in....I ordered these fiber pills from Amazon as suggested from my doctor after complaining to her about the whole situation, explaining my diet and also (this may be TMI) complaining a bit about side effects from taking my daily migraine preventives (little stomach aches in mornings).

I NO LONGER have to eat every 3 hours and eat when I am hungry like a normal person as long as I take 3 pills with each meal with a nice big glass of water. It has become such a relief to not be constantly worried and stressed about eating all the time!!

u/pervypirate · 1 pointr/sex

Hijacking because this is the top comment. My wife went from grudgingly occasionally allowing anal, to demanding it, begging for it, wanting to be butt fucked nearly ever time we have sex. The biggest change was the lube we used, after years of using cheap grocery store (like KY) and cheap Adam and Eve junk we finally found a great lube that works. Sliquid Sassy this stuff is amazing, water based so it's safe for condoms and toys, glycerine free so it won't get sticky, and it washes away pretty easily.

Other than the HUGE improvement that the lube made, I would suggest good digestive care, use a Fiber supplement Psyllium Husk is easy and cheap if you don't mind fairly big pills.

Finally, butt hygene, we use a bidet in our home, it's weird at first but once you get used to it you will never want to go back to TP again. Wife also uses an enema bag to clean up before a full blown butt fuck session. I can't speak to that except to say that we have never experienced any "accidents" after she's used the enema.

Good luck, the wife is totally into butt stuff all the time and now has literal SCREAMING orgasms from it. Wishing the same to you!

Hey, this is the recipe I started with!

The flax is definitely terrible. I considered it undrinkable. I replaced it with this and found it much more manageable.

More recently I reworked the recipe to eliminate the flax altogether, replacing it with psyllium husk powder, and my DIY is now silky smooth.

u/NismoPlsr · 1 pointr/spicy

This has been on my wish list for a while now, but haven't given a try yet.

u/unforgiven60 · 1 pointr/keto

Yes it happened to me. I say "happened" because I have found a solution.

A little background first. I have had "watery stool" pretty much all of keto (~18 months) and before I started Keto when I was eating badly. I don't know if it is due to some form of IBS (probably) or whatever, but it wasn't so bad that I just had to get it checked out.

I started IF this year and I noticed that after every meal (only 2 meals) I had pure water coming out of my ass almost. Like clockwork. I do eat veggies some and am not doing a full zero carb diet or anything. But I did notice that I wasn't getting much soluble fiber (veggies seem to be mostly insoluble which doesn't slow down the works).

Anyway, I was tired of this pattern messing up my plans of having to actually go places and do work after lunch (but I wanted to keep fasting). Anyway, did some reading and decided to try a fiber supplement first. I had some old fiber I had in my desk from early in Keto. I had trouble mixing it and I didn't like the taste, so I gave up on it early on, plus it didn't help. Anyway, I still didn't like it and it barely helped.

Long story short, I came upon Psyllium husk powder link and tried it. I've been on it about a month now maybe.

After some experimenting with dose timing, I started taking one TBSP mixed in about 32oz of water WITH or a few mins BEFORE my meal. I also mix it with crystal light so it doesn't taste like I'm eating mud. With the crystal light, it's honestly no issue to drink it. DRINK IT FAST THOUGH! If you wait too long, this stuff will turn into a sludge and it becomes much harder to drink.

It may take some time for your body to adjust to this, in terms of changing your bowel, but it has for me. I stopped having to go in the afternoon after lunch. I pretty much go one time after dinner now. The stool is more firm but still not hard. I would describe it as "fluffy". Much more pleasant experience.

Someone else said "more fat" but I think it's the fat the caused my problem. This stuff, when taken with a meal, seems to soak up some of that stuff in your stomach, intestine and keeps the liquid from flowing down so fast. After you've been on it a while, it finally starts to work thru your full digestive system and regulates everything.

I haven't noticed that many side effects. The only ones I've seen are I've started farting again (whether this is bad, only others can say) and once in a while, I will get some stomach rumbling as things settle after a meal or approaching my daily movement. Nothing painful, but I can usually tell when things are ready to move. I don't really see this as a negative either.

Anyway, maybe you should check it out. I read that you should get 25-35g of fiber a day, and especially on keto, I was getting nowhere near that. Especially soluble since it comes mostly from fruit. With 2 doses of this a day, I can get pretty close to the goal.

I'm not guaranteeing results, it just worked for me. For about $20 (counting buying the crystal light) it's probably worth trying. Also something to consider, there is some buzz around gut bacteria and things like that. While I don't know all that much about it, some of the beneficial bacteria that feeds off carbs likely dies out when on keto. This stuff can rekindle some of that bacteria and theoretically re-balance that system. Probably should do some of your own research if you want to know more. I'm no expert.

EDIT it also helps you feel quite full after you drink it, so it can help you possibly cut down on the calories in your meals and make hitting macros more attainable.

u/TheDoktorIsIn · 1 pointr/Fitness

I got this not too long ago and it's great. I add it to my shakes when I think of it, 8g carbs 7g fiber. 2 shakes a day means half my fiber right there.

u/Back-in-the-Saddle · 1 pointr/Fitness

Hi, I'm late to the party on this thread so I hope someone gets a chance to read this. Cravings have always been a big problem for me so I do a lot of things. In general I try eat a near ketosis diet (/r/keto for more info) staying away from fast absorbing carbs in general keeps my appetite down. Next biggest thing I do is I buy bulk Psyllium fiber and gluccomannan and put them in a nice easy open container and spoon out a teaspoon with meals and a tablespoon with very low fiber meals (it's mixed in water and then you have to drink it really fast). This helps me from over eating. I also do lots of things like drink water when I'm hungry and leave raw whole walnuts and almonds in jars on my counter so I'm tempted to eat a few throughout the day. Another thing that helps with the cravings is baby carrots a little more expensive by I don't have to get a knife and cut carrots up which makes me eat more. I also throw a few carrots on the side of my plate with every meal. In general as well I try to eat tons of healthy fats through out the day. I like avocado, tuna, I'll have some coconut oil in my protein shakes as well. I've found if I skip meals I then over eat on the next meal which causes insulin spikes which set me up for a three day roller coaster of overeating so I don't skip meals! Hope this helps!

Edit: I also supplement with cod liver oil which I think seems to help!

u/gobol · 1 pointr/Fitness

I usually do 15g twice a day. Usually every 12 hours. 6:30 AM when I eat breakfast, keeps me full until I eat again later. Then again around 6:30 PM after my last meal. I never really get super hungry on huge deficits during a cut.

u/blurfocus · 1 pointr/keto

Looks like you have thoroughly researched keto.

Avoiding heavily processed foods is generally a good thing. Of course, time and budget may limit some people's ability to do it.

Losing 10+ pounds has a huge positive influence on your health. This positive influence may outweigh the negative influence of a few extra nitrates. As you near your goal weight, it may make more sense to focus more on avoiding processed foods.

I've lost 45+ pounds in six months even though dairy is a fairly big part of my diet. I eat heavy cream, cheese, homemade yogurt (low-sugar, high-fat), and butter. If you limit your dairy intake to dairy from grass-fed cows, you'll even increase your intake of omega 3 fatty acids which is a good thing.

With dairy, let your diet progress guide your intake. As the saying goes, your mileage may vary.

Add potassium, magnesium, and sodium to your list of supplements to keep your electrolytes balanced. Also, take a B12 / folic acid supplement to keep levels of homocysteine under control. Fish oil is more effective per gram than flaxseed oil. Read this link for details

1 gram of net carb to get 3 grams of fiber sounds like too much. For example, psyllium powder has 7 grams of fiber for every gram of carbs.

Also, magnesium supplements will help to keep you regular. I don't supplement with extra fiber and seem to do okay. Again, different people may have different results.

Raw vegetables are better. As for cooking, steaming is probably better than boiling since fewer vitamins and minerals would be leached out. However, heat is the thing that denatures water-soluable vitamins. This link has some useful information. It claims that the fat-soluable vitamins aren't damaged as much by heat -

Nutrition labels can be misleading because any carbs / serving that are less than 1 gram are rounded down to 0. The calories per serving can help you to work backward and discover the amount of calories that may be due to carbs. Protein has 4 calories per gram and fat is 9 calories per gram (MCT oil is 7 calories per gram). Take the calories per serving and subtract 4P and 9F to find the calories due to carbs. Divide the result by 4 to find the grams of carbs. Of course, protein and fat grams are rounded as well which will affect the result.

Some people report no problems with artificial sweeteners. Some can't tolerate them at all. Some are okay with some, but not others. Try to see what works for you. Best is to avoid them altogether if you can manage to do so.

Good plan to avoid exceptions. They will derail you if you let them.

u/Billmarius · 1 pointr/kratom

Have you tried taking Psyllium Husk before you go to bed? I use 1 heaping tablespoon mixed with orange juice. I used to have perpetual constipation and mud-shit despite my substantial fiber intake. Now, my shits have satisfying bulk and there's very little wiping involved. The mud-shit is encased in the mucilage formed by the Psyllium Husk; the Husk is not digested and has a purely mechanical action in the body. It is perfectly safe and can also help reduce cholesterol levels.

When I say a lot of liquid I mean a lot, like, find the biggest glass you own (maybe plastic to compensate for the vigorous stirring without cracking glass) put the heaping tablespoon in the bottom and stir vigorously as you pour.

After a while I was going through too much orange juice, so I switched to adding a glug of straight lemon juice to the bottom with my Husk and pour water whilst stirring vigorously. It basically tastes like pulpy lemon water which is not the best flavor but if you give it a go and see what kind of awesome shits you're capable of you'll commit to this unpleasant moment in your evening and it'll become part of your life. The days that I plow through half a pizza, for example, and don't drink my Husk I revert to shit that looks like it was extruded from the Soft Serve machine.

u/Malatesta · 1 pointr/leangains

Brand/type does matter. I've had the whole husk kind--the one where it's kind of grainy and that thickens a little (absorbs water), but the NOW Foods powder one definitely act differently being a finely milled powder like GlycoMaize. Check the reviews and you'll see people talking about slamming 'em down fast otherwise they get too thick to drink.

The first 15 seconds to Colon-Blo is pretty accessible and the song itself does a fantastic job of promoting fiber and recommending that one avoid dismemberment.

Here all the lyrics to help sing along:
>Sticking to the walls of your insides
A corrosive enzyme lives and breathes
only to be excreted
with help of fiber and balanced diet

>Tilting equilibrium
makes way for nausea
Rectal muscle gives way
flooding down your leg

>Enhanced nutrition
sliding right through the body
No time to digest
Colon bursts out the chest

>Sickening stench
of methane and bile
Colon blows like a rubber hose
the sweet odor invades your nose

>Trying to grab your gasmask
sometimes an uneasy task
when your pubis is dismembered from your abdomen

I may be jumping to conclusions, but i presume that your 1200 calorie diet is an attempt at weight loss? infrequent stools are very common when losing weight on that sort of calorie deficit. Also, i used to have the metamucil wafers but they're extremely high on calories/fructose and so i switched to this. It doesn't really taste like anything and i have a few teaspoons of it with water in the morning. It's just pure husk. pm me if you have any other questions! :)

Your diet will have a large impact on consistency. If you want thicker stool is my favorite product. There is also a negative correlation between high fiber and colon cancer.

u/GeneralMalaiseRB · 1 pointr/tifu

A few months ago I started consuming 2 tablespoons of Psyllium husk. That's the primary ingredient in that gritty Metamucil powder. But I don't like the flavorings and sugar and other bullshit they put in it, so I found just straight-up Psyllium husk powder. It's still kinda yucky, and you gotta mix it into your juice or coffee and just swig it down. But man... I've never had such consistent or easygoing bathroom time in my life.

This is the one I am using currently.

u/whoaholduphangonnow · 1 pointr/loseit

I don't think you're allergic. When you change diets your gut has to get accustomed to the new food and how it'll process it. This same thing happened to me when I started eating 90% clean - BUT keep in mind - it will also happen when you have a great, healthy diet and then allow yourself cheat meal every once in a while.

Something I've found that helps: take a probiotic/acidophilus every day (get one that has at least a billion cultures or else it's not worth it) and get a bottle of psyllium husk capsules (fiber) like this one -

The probiotic will help your gut function and the fiber helps keep you regular and gets your body used to a regular flow of fiber. Think of these two things as a "cushion" in your gut, so that a bunch of fiber-filled veggies or a big plate of fatty food won't make you feel as terrible afterward

Yeah get a cheap psyllium husk. Like 15 grams per day. So, poop is more than food. It's also a lot metabolic waste from things like red blood cell death... Fiber helps it come out and not build up.

Also, reducing calories can cause digestive shutdown/slow down (this prevents a lot of calories from being burned). So, having something in there is beneficial no matter how you look at it.

Not that these can cure it, but they may help symptoms till you can get a game plan or find a good doctor to help. Hopefully adding good bacteria with probiotics can take up more real estate then the bad guys and feeding the good bacteria with a prebiotic soluble fiber like psyllium husk can help them thrive. Cutting out the sugar should hinder the bad bacteria food source. Just something to try for cheap till you can figure some fix out.

I do 20:4 and I notice that my "poops" vary from day to due (like others have said due to the fiber that I'm eating, and also due to how hydrated that I am).
