Gas: If the bloating is due to gas,the question is whether you are forming excessive gas or are not passing normal amounts of gas. To reduce gas, try simethicone 1/2hour after meals. Drinking hot water helps break down trapped gas. You may be gluten or lactose intolerant. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Not normal...: The normal range of bm frequency is from 3 stools bms per day to 1 bm every 3 days. Your frequency falls outside the range of normal. The longer the stool sits in the colon is associated with greater risk of colon cancer. I suggest you eat more fiber, get more active, drink more water or use a gentle laxative to have more frequent bms. You may want to see a gastroenterologist. Good luck! ...Read more

You're not abnormal: Irregularity is common & does not necessarily signal abnormality. Average stool pattern in america fits a bell-curve, ranging from 3 movements daily to one every 3-4 days.

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?
Water: Veggies and fruit have lots of water. Eating efficiently and properly matching your physiological needs may have set a new baseline for you. Every 3rd day is a big change but not abnormal. 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. This is not my field, so.. ...Read more
