it seems when i eat any raw vegetables, whatever the type, i get loose stools. even certain/most steamed vegetables will give me a lesser extent of loose stools.
if i go on a binge and eat lots of grains or legumes, i have well formed and bulky stools..
what is causing this?

Cook Veggies more and make sure fat is present , u cant digest veggies without fat , also get yourself a Digestive Enzyme , leave those grains alone !
Sounds like your body doesn't like raw veggies. So don't eat raw veggies. Eat what veggies you are comfortable with eating cooked, and make sure you include high-quality organ meat from healthy animals to keep your diet nutrient-dense.
Forget raw. Cook your veggies well.
Soluble fiber is very gut friendly: squash of any type, sweet potato, parsnips, carrots are all good sources. And they're nice this time of year with some cinnamon and sage too :)
Chris Kresser describes insoluble fiber as scratching a wound with a wire brush. Yikes. Go easy on spinach, cabbage, broccoli, leafy greens. Don't cut them out, but don't eat them every day either.
