Hey what's up.
So basically I'm cutting right now and I'm eating close to 40g of fiber through vegetables and what not everyday while drinking copious amounts of water.
I weigh 150, my macros are 200g protein, 150g carbs, 50g fat for the day and my protein sources are egg whites, whey, chicken, and tilapia.
What I don't get is I don't get bowel movements frequently, sometimes up to like 3 days and it kind of freaks me out. When I do, I have to put quite a bit of effort into it and it's not even like one of those super clean quick ones. They're normal sized stools. I'm eating a lot of fiber, at least I think I am, but it's just chillin' inside me and takes forever to move out.
Also, the thing is though, I notice when I have a cheat day, the following day is a guaranteed poop. Not sure why.
Am I getting enough fiber? Is a high protein diet slower to digest than normal diets?
I've also thought about it being related to stress but anyone else have something similar going on?
