more below on "FECAL BULK"--what I call "ladylike stools". I am not
advocating a meat diet [I am vegetarian] but to lend knowledge.
When you transition to a low-fiber diet it's "a few little balls" the
size of a thumb, not massive huge defecations--and most
importantly, the colon becomes youthified, clean and healthy:


"There may be a bit of true constipation for the first couple of
weeks of transition and this is caused by the massive dying off of
the old intestinal flora that flourished on carbs and is slowly
replaced by a much smaller colony of bacteria that handle the
digestive byproducts of a meat based diet. It has been shown that
80% of the fecal bulk in a carb based diet is bacteria. These are
very small critters that can pack together tightly and form a solid
mass that is hard to move. This is why fiber is recommended on a
carb diet. The fiber reduces the packing effect and keeps the mass
somewhat pliable. When you transition to a meat based diet you
arenít supplying any fiber but bacteria load is still there from the
old carb diet. As they die off they may form a solid mass and
constipation results. Once you get past this (a few weeks at most)
youíll find elimination very easy though probably much less
frequent Ė especially in the beginning.

As you continue on a low carb protocol where much less bulk is
supplied to the colon, the colon will shrink in size to better
accommodate the smaller load and bowel movements will be
triggered more and more frequently, but be much smaller in size.
In my case, when I stared this adventure 5 years ago or so, I was
having a BM every 3 or 4 days and they were about the volume of
what they were when I was eating carbs. Today, after five years, I
usually have BM every day but it is very small, maybe a couple of
pieces about the size of your thumb. Movements are much easier
and far faster than when I was a carb eater.

Iíve also had a colonoscopy recently and was told by the doctor
performing the procedure that he has seldom seen a colon in such
good shape in a person my age (Iíll be 60 in Jan). Had he not seen
me himself, and just had the pictures of my colon to look at, he
would have guessed they were from a person in their 20ís or early
30ís. The colon was firm, smooth, and had great muscle tone.
There were no signs of polyps or any other abnormality. I was told
not to bother to repeat the procedure, as it was clear that I
wouldnít be dying for colon cancer anytime soon."
