I was reading through this thread and when I got to the bottom, saw an advertisement for RI Fiber... too funny.

I used to have issues myself a few years back, averaging maybe every other day if I was lucky.

Since the 'road to health' took to my life, my diet has helped.

Right now I can average a min of 2 per day.. sometimes I have 3 and all are floaters.
I get LOTS of fiber in a day
I do cardio 4-5 days a week
weights 2-3 times

and what I have found helps keep me 'moving' is good ole FLAX SEED.

Every morning that I have oatmeal, I myself add 2 tbsp of ground flax seeds to my bowl and stir (I started with a half tbsp and worked up literally lol)

Or I will add a tbsp to my yogurt, or add some to my salads as well.
I always try to have 2 tbsp a day and they are part of my healthy fats in my caloric daily intake as well.

Default my battle

I've learned to fine tune my GI process because I'm a graveyard shift worker. In order to have a family life I shift back to day shift schedule on the weekends. Some commitments during the week prevent me from getting a "big sleep" and I have to take 2 - 3 naps per day (polyphasic sleeping).

The first system to stop is the GI. Working the liquids and the fiber, senna tea when it gets real bad, keeps it moving.

Your mileage may vary!

TMI from some of you out there. I found this article to be helpful in answering all I ever wanted to know about the subject matter.
I hope it helps!
