3 Bumps

Could this be why i am going to the bathroom more than usual adult content

I started atkins yesterday and have been going poop like twice a day. It isnt hard or anything, and it usually kind of is. I am wandering if it is because i am eating so much protein and more vegetables than usual and less carbs and soda and junk.
Could that be what it is?
Is that pretty common?
Not sure if i am going to stick with atkins or not. Still trying to get the hang of it.
Any tips if you have done it.

  • Why are you doing Atkins? I lasted 2 days on it (years ago)

    I have heard it will affect your...restroom habits so I guess that may be it

  • Yes, it is extremely common. Whenever you increase protein and fiber, you tend to have more frequency of stool.

  • more vegetables will do that to you, kind of clean you out at first.
