Started HIIT-Stopped pooing. Hack my bowels.

Hello ladies and gentleman!

So I eat vlc so no fiber. I have been taking 1000 mg of magnesium citrate and that was helping me poo quite nicely! I have a long history of constipation and that was lovely. Who cares if it was liquid! Loved it!

But I started HIIT in the form of kettlebell swings. 20-40 minutes every other day. LOVE IT. But now I'm not pooping. This is unfun.

More magnesium? Any ideas why it stopped?

Okay, 4 is considered ideal. Wait another day and don't increase mag cit intake. You'll probably get a 4 or 5.

Why does VLC preclude eating fibre?

I think you're making a fundamental error. You need to be counting "net carbs" not "stupid American total carbs that include fibre, even though most of it is not digested to glucose".

I eat <25g carbs a day. You can include lots and lots of fibre packed green veg in that 100kcal.

Try adding a couple tablespoons of unrefined coconut oil to your daily diet.

I poop better after doing HIIT. Were your stools on the soft side before? I've gone through periods where I start HIIT suddenly and the next day I'll have a perfect 4 on the Bristol Stool Chart.

You said you're taking magnesium, were you getting 5's or 6's from the magnesium? You might just want to wait another day and see if you get a 4. started-hiit-stopped-pooing.-hack-my-bowels.
