Poop very little after large meals?

Eat more veggies: Your body is an amazing digestion machine. If you are eating mostly meat and carbs, there is not going to be much leftover! Poop is made up of mostly fiber residue (roughage), bacteria, GI secretions and water. I suspect you are not eating enough fruits and vegetables to give bulk to your stool. I recommend 25-30 grams of fiber per day. ...Read more

Eat all in 8 hours: More important than how many meals you eat is if you can eat all your meals within an 8-hour period and fast for 16 hours; doing this even a few days a week will help. Also, what you eat is much more important than the number of meals- it is crucial to eat a low-glycemic diet.
