16 yrs. Lost 35 lb in 6 months by eating more vegetables, less of everything else. Before diet bowel movement once a day. Now only every 3 days. Why?

The water in the veggies is absorbed, esp. If you are dehydrated. With less fats and proteins in your diet and in the gut, you have less fluid dynamics providing pressure for release.

Family Doctor first: I would start with your family doctor for full physical exam and blood work. If your BMI is normal then I would simply pick a healthy eating plan with enough calories to maintain your current weight. You may need to see a gastroenterologist eventually, especially if there is a family history of any colon cancer. ...Read more
