Hi I have a bowel movement about 3-4 times a day. It is hard and brown. Is 3-4 times a day too much ? Is that normal?

Hard poop = abnormal: Each person with constipation needs to be sure there is no other disease causing it. If constipation is just due to slow movement of the food and poop through the gut, then the things to try are vegetables, water, prune juice, prunes, fiber+water, miralax, (polyethylene glycol) senokot or other senna, milk of magnesia, other laxatives... A doctor can evaluate and prescribe helpful meds too. Exercise also helps. ...Read more

Hey man!: This is normal. A majority of men your age are doing exactly the same thing. It's good for you, keeps the pressure down so you can focus on other things, and lets you learn about your mind and body in preparation for adult roles. It's not going to hurt you physically or "spiritually"; anyone telling you otherwise is misinformed. Talk with some sensible grown men -- maybe even dad. ...Read more

Is it bad to eat only two times a day?

Is it bad to eat only two times a day?

Bad wrong word: It's not a question of bad, but more like less than ideal. Eating at least three meals a day tends to keep your Insulin level more steady, leaves you feeling more satiated over the course of the day and less likely to gouge on food. More important than the number of meals is what you eat. Avoid white sugar, flour, rice, and pasta. Eat fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, whole grains, and wild salmon. ...Read more

How many times a day should I urinate?I wee twice a day that is after I get up in the morning and at 16:30. I'm also obese, is it water retention?

Depends: You will urinate in direct proportion to how much you're taking in as food and drink minus what you lose from sweat. If you retain fluid, you'll see a steady rise in your weight and get puffy ankles that leave a "pit" after you pinch them with your thumb and forefinger. If it's warm where you live and if you don't drink much, you'll not need to urinate very often. ...Read more
