The past few weeks I've been having problems with this. After I take a dump it gets really messy to clean up. I have to use tons of tissue to wipe and sometimes it bleeds and hurts because I've been wiping too much. Can it be due to a lack of fiber? What should I be eating more?

How to make feces more solid?

I had this and found it was a problem with my body and certain carbs. I don't eat oats anymore because of it and watch my carb intake.
These days I drink 3/4gallon of milk and limit my carb intake to lunch and breakfast with bugger all carbs at dinner and instead have salads and vegetables.
These days my turds are perfect, although rarely I have to strain like all hell but that's probably not enough fibre for me.
What's a typical diet for you? How often do you ****?
btw I **** morning and when I get home from work. If I weren't on this bulking diet it's down to once a day.

Oats caused my stomach to groan and mumble not long after eating them (rolled oats, porridge, fine oats -- all kinds, no matter how I ate them) and caused mild diahorrea and loose stools. Upon inspection it seemed it wasn't completely digested, despite how much I chewed them.
Contrary to what I previously thought, drinking this much milk definitely does NOT cause diahorrea/loose stools. In fact it seems to help with the exact opposite!

A thread about ****???
THIS THREAD WINS!!!
anyway, I have found that a balanced diet of protein and carbs produces decent results. I stay away from carbs that are not whole grain. For example, white bread is a no-no, but 12 grain or flax bread is a go.
A great bread for fiber is Ezekiels Mens bread. It's full of nuts and whole grains and seeds. It can be found in most organic sections of grocery stores.
People laugh at me for eating something called man Bread, but hey, I'm not starting a thread about **** on the internet, so let them laugh...

My dad and sister go nuts about psyllium husk... how does that effect your bowel movements? Make them solid and regular, or does it just clean you the **** out and make a mess in the process?
Mind you my dad is getting on in age, so maybe he's having troubles and that's his cure. God knows what the **** my sister's excuse is then.
