Sorry, apologize for the subject, but most general health boards aren't made up of folks who exercise and eat the way we do :-)
I'm fairly regular, usually once in the AM and again after dinner. Lately I've been having an "in between" that kicks in immediately after eating my breakfast. Here's a quick sample of my day:
6:30 - Wake up
Cup of tea
1/2 cup Fibre First (or Spoon-sized Shredded Wheat) with approx 250ml skim milk
7:15 - 8:00 - Workout
8:10 - Bowel movement and shower
8:30 - Breakfast
Cup of tea
Boiled eggs, 2 whole, 4 whites
1 piece whole grain bread with 1 tbsp smooth low-fat peanut butter
9:00 - Into the home office to start work
9:30 - "Urge" bowel movement, slightly mushier. By "urge" I mean it hits right away and though I could postpone, best not to. I know many will point to the fibre cereal but this happens regardless of whether or not I consume the first breakfast. As soon as the food hits my stomach during the post-WO meal, it feels like I need to go.
I eat normally throughout the day, the usual type of meals spaced out 2-3 hours, chicken, veggies, whey, etc. I will usually go again after dinner, but not always. This batch is often pellets or small strips (again, I apologize for the topic!).
In addition to 2-3 scoops of whey isolate, I am also taking 5g creatine per day with my night-time shake (1-2 hrs before bed).
My first bowel movement of the day feels complete, i.e. I feel void. But after I eat it seems there was more waiting in the wings. Anyone know what might be up with that?
