The power of suggestion is amazing! For the last two days I've gone more than once a day. Today I went three times, and I've been eating compliantly.

Quoted from connect14
Are you guys serious? Something must be wrong with me? I used to go once daily. Now I go once every other day! If I increase grain intake, then I go back to my normal once a day. Does this mean I need to do some intestinal work?


Same here. Just once daily. If I go more (which would be no more then 2 times) it's because I ate avoids the day before.

For me it is determined by the amount of oil, fiber, and magnesium contained in what I consumed the day before.

Wow.  What a thread.  Since we're on the subject, I used to be so clogged up I'd go once or twice a week (as a child --- my sister, in her mid-20's, A NURSE, and an A+, still only goes 1 to 2 times a week.  She should know better.  She thinks the BTD is dumb.  Oh, well.  I won't be the one to die of colon cancer when I'm 35).  

Since BTD, I go once a day except the first two days of my period, then I go maybe 2 or 3 times a day (I did figure something out, if I can add this here.  All the women in my family have loose stools the day or two leading up to their periods.  I think I realized why--it's the same hormones that cause you to have loose stools just before you have a baby.)  

Wheat makes me bloated and stalls outgoing info for up to 2-3 days.

Why is it that I still occasionally have a little blood in my stools?  It's gotten better since BTD, but sometimes it returns for a day with no reason (no avoids eaten).

Quoted from outdoordrea
For most of my life I was constipated and didn't know that was not normal. Since being on the BTD, I usually have one a day, sometimes two depending on what I'm eating (although I haven't been able to pinpoint it yet). Whenever I don't have one in the morning, I'm automatically suspect that something is off.


Because Drea's letter is word for word my experience, I am simply repeating it.

Dear Ribbit,

There could be several reasons why there is blood in the stool. To list a couple:

1. mensturating
2. hemorrhoids
3. problems with your colon
4. etc

I would have it checked out. There is a simple stool test you can take specifically geared for finding blood in your stool and analyizing it. This kind of test is standard when you go for a regular medical checkup.

Oh.  I don't go to medical checkups.  Maybe I should.  My guess would be a hemorrhoid---two  babies (8.5 lbs and 10.5 lbs) would be the cause of that, I suppose.

Ribbit,

Well, having babies could certainly give you hemorrhoids.
I had blood in my stool, checked it out and found I had a mild case of hemorroids. Since I've been on the BTD, the condition (blood in stools) has cleared up.  

In anycase, I would have it checked into.

I'm also like Connect14.  Once daily, sometimes twice.  Since I stopped my morning coffee, which always worked for me I've also gone every other day.

I thought A bloodtypes had a "slow boat to China" kind of system.   What I remember reading was A's were kind of sluggish in the morning.  Isn't that true?

I'm stepping up the veggies and leafy greens and see what that does.

Joy, Do you drink warm lemon water first thing in the am? I find that that alone usually does the trick (especially since exchanging my morning caf coffee with green tea). Also, except while traveling when my digestion goes completely wack, a regular schedule works best for me.

Drea,

I did that when I first started the BTD and I don't remember if it helped in that respect or not.
But if it works for you that's good.  

I started taking some herbal products and that may have something to do with it.  As I said if I eat more fibrous veggies it always helps.  

I had been buying kale which I like but involves so much chewing (unless I cut it up into little pcs.) which is more edible for me.

Kale is good juiced right along with carrots/lime/apples.

ie to what extent are you following the A plan?
Are you drinking lots of water?

Looking forward to your story.

Bulky foods help. Like when I make winter squash, I mash it up like you would potatoes and eat not 1/2 cup, but like 1 1/2 cups. A large helping of fried okra (coated in rice flour and fried in olive oil) and black-eyed peas with maybe a side of raw spinach.....and I've got myself a great meal that I feel wonderful for hours after eating. I actually don't pay attention to the serving sizes because I eat based on the nourishment I need to feel energetic. (But then, I don't need to lose weight.) Anyway, it helped me a lot (bowel-wise) when I first started the BTD to eat a huge helping of mashed winter squash (butternut is my favorite) just about every day.

I am proud to say that after 30 years of severe constipation I am now completely regular. The reason? Undiagnosed hypothyroidism!!! As soon as my doc put me on armour my bowels have become normal!!

Cindy,

The warm water w/lemon does the trick for me.

Olive oil seems to make me go more often, AND it makes it easier for me to go. This is such a blessing b/c I used to be constipated b/c of really dry stools. Not anymore!!! My bowels are nomal now thanks not only to olive oil, but to BTD itself.  No more stool softeners for me!!

This poll results actually shocks me. You A's must be eating alot of fiber or eating lots of fruit and veggies. A's have low stomach acid which makes digestion more difficult so you A's must be getting lots of fiber.

I don't always get all the fiber in a day I need and this makes things difficult for me. I know A's should follow a vegatarine diet but it is sometimes hard. I do avoid red meat and dairy which are the biggest culprits for me. Would like to know what  you do or eat to get your digestive system to react so quickly.

I eat veggies like 3 times a day, fruits like 2 or 3 times a day, FRESH pineapple 3 times a week.

LOTS of buckwheat *yum*!

I never eat chicken or turkey, even if they are "okay" they are not bennies and they make me feel ill.

Oh yeah, like 10-12 glasses of water a day.
