You need to give your body time to adjust. It not going to happen right away.  Take vitamins and/or add more fiber supplements into your diet. If it’s a huge worry for you, make a doctor’s appointment and bring it up with him/her.

If you feel uncomfortable then make an appointment with your doctor. It is possible to be constipated even if you are having BMs. They may order a KUB (abdominal xray) to check to see if you are constipated. If so they will direct you in what to do. If your stool seems hard, I recommend stool softeners, I take them on occasion. They aren’t harsh like a laxitive but they will aide in producing a Bridesmaid or Best Man over a few days.

I love your title, firstly.

Secondly, I think if you start taking more fiber, maybe a stool softener like a PP said, should help. If it’s painful or bothersome and you’re worried, I’d just go see the doc. 🙂

i had the same problem when i wasn’t eating enough… i think you need to increase your fruits and veggies to get more food in your body.  when i was eating too few calories and was vegan, i would have a Bridesmaid or Best Man maybe every 4 or 4 days…. and they were small and hard.

You might also try to add Citrucel to your diet to help regulate your bowels & make things more normal.  It may just be your system adjusting to the dietary changes but adding the fiber shouldn’t hurt.  I have IBS and it is recommended for both IBS-D and IBS-C (not that you have IBS but just saying it can help both diarrhea and constipation).  It is much easier on the stomach than Metamucil (I forget how the ingredients differ but Citrucel can add the fiber without the gas & cramps that Metamucil can cause).

Also, what kinds of fruits and vegetables are you eating?  Vegetables that hold more water (peppers, cucumbers, ect) can help a lot with digestion.
