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

Bowel flora : An inadequately-addressed problem of bowel function involves imbalance of bacterial population.

Reflex: You have an active gastrocolic reflex so that when food enters your stomach, it sets off a reflex that sends waves of contraction down your entire intestinal tract leading to a bowel movement. If you can't slow it down by experimenting with your diet, a medication like bentyl (dicyclomine) taken 1/2 hour before eating usually calms down this reflex. Discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

Gastrocolic reflex.: The gastrocolic reflex stimulates large intestinal contractions when food enters the stomach — helps us move our bowels, as more waste is on the way from above.
