twice a day.  Like clockwork.

The only time I have ever deviated from this was when I was a Vegan and then my normal body routine went completely off-kilter.  That should have been a warning sign for me for sure.

Once in the morning when I first get up, if not-right after workout and once in the evening after supper, if not-right after walking the dog.   The more compliant I stay the more my bowel movements stay on track.

Yes, twice a day seems normal for me since O diet  18 months now.  Super change because before O diet, had IBS and that was either explode or no-go for days.  Now I know what normal is!!!!

Wow - interesting.  It seems like, so far, O's tend to go twice a day:  once in the morning and once in the afternoon/ evening.  I need to take a quick looksee and see if this is more of a "human" thing, or more of an "O" thing....!

After 5-6 days of BTD compliance I go 1 or two times daily. When I have wheat, coffee, sugar, and dairy I either go loose or none for a couple of days.

I voted "daily"...

See, I'm not sure how many times I go exactly, because I'm that type of person that don't pay much attention to things like that as long as they run smoothly. As long as I "go" every day, everything is fine and I'm happy.

(When I was on Atkins, on the other hand...! Nothing happened unless I ate a ton of Psyllum Husks every day! )

I just began the 0 type diet a few days ago.  I have always had 2-3 bowel movements a day, all my life.  I did have my appendix removed when I was twelve, but I can not really remember my bowel movement intracacies much before a few years ago.

sorry to intrude in the O poo poll, but this is exactly what happened to me when I was a vegan and vegetarian, I was constipated constantly, even now, I have noticed if I do not eat enough meat in a day I get more constipated, I think I have an O digestive system

Actually, when I went Vegan, I was going TOO much.  I was gassy and always in the can.  Just too bulky.  And stinky.  Like all was not well in mudville.

Started eating for Type O, and everything went back to normal.

Varies, from 2-3 times/day dpending on what I've been eating and when. All those veggies have to come out sometime......

Pre-BTD it was once a day, clockwork.

I've been on this diet for 2-weeks now and it has helped my bowels somewhat.  I also go within 30-min of waking up and before I go to bed.  Pre BTD, I would have bowel movements almost every time I went to the bathroom (4+/day).  I've never been constipated - in and out very quickly  .  Now, while on BTD (I'm not 100% compliant yet, more like 90% - still learning), my bowel movements have hardened somewhat and I'm down to 2-4x/day.

Funny, Atkins never changed my movements except that there was less bulk, obviously.

For me it seems that when I'm strictly compliant I have fewer bowel movements.  When I eat c**p it gets treated like c**p and gets pushed through pretty fast.  Beneficials my body likes to slowly move through, extracting much super nutritive stuff.

Once a day upon rising when -O- compliance is high. Later, like mid morning if coffee has been running the show. Every other day round mid morning or later was a traditional lifelong expectation. As a child the process was very painful and the most terrifying thing to overcome.  For this and other BTD  reasons I can only wonder what my life might have been like had my childhood and subsequent years been wheat and avoid free. Ask a simple question...

Pip: 2 to 3 times or more daily.
John: 1 sometimes 2 rarely 3 times daily

Both of us have improved in regularity and quality since BTD compliance.

Daily diaphragm breathing exercises.
Daily fluid in fluid out balance maintained.
Daily balanced BTD food in.
Daily bowel movements monitored.
Daily exercise 6km brisk walk maintained (circumstantial interruptions)
Daily supplements as required as circumstances dictate.

Quarterly health checks with local GP.

We monitor our health and well being by comparing our state of fitness against that of our peers and how well we deal with the challenges that each day and natures seasons presents to us.

So far we seem to be keeping ahead of the pace, thanks to help provided by the BTD lifestyle.

We are 63 and 66 years old respectively so we have to expect to suffer some of the age related problems now and then but inflammation seems to be the most persistent problem that we face. Cheers John.

I voted for my daughter
prior to BTD she was ALWAYS constipated.
As long as she only did breastmilk she was fine but weird- one small sticky puh every 10 days - but she was ok content - growing like grass
When I started to feed her solid  she had more movements but
- it really got bad around 1 year when I started to feed her more bread and no breast - pains in her belly and difficult movements.
Today she is fine but she does not have movements everyday she is still very efficient..
