am going to try to do this with out being gross of offensive

I am on day 3 of phase2 day 1 of vlcd and am spending so much time in bathroom today that am ready to move chair and computer in there.

I expected the increase fluid trips which i definetly am making
but am finding that am also taking many trips for waste as well. (every couple hours) not lose at all normal formation just I normally am on the consitpated side of life and am lucky to have trip for waste couple times a week...and today have made 6 trips for this reason alone...

so is this fat leaving body or just something happening due to the hcg? diet?

sorry just trying to get understanding on what to expect

Wow, I think you're lucky. I usually read about people complaining about lack of *cough* *cough*! I'm on Day 3 as well and today was the first time I went to do a big one...And it resembled rabbit poopsies :rolleyes:

I am drinking so much water and tea, but it's really not positively affecting my bowel movement, I am however, peeing like a camel :) Having said all of that, I don't feel bloated or in any kind of discomfort. I guess it varies from person to person, but if I was you, I'd consider myself lucky :)

lipstic i drank green tea mixed with chamolie (sp) herbal tea and hour later I was ready to move into bathroom
i am not complaining.. just wondering if it is just the extra water or if it is result of the hcg and fat release or something

Number one is pretty frequent, but improving. On day one I it was every ten minutes. Now I am up to every 20 to 30 minutes on about 120 oz. of water plus about 20 oz. of tea throughout the day. I spend a lot of time in the car, so I make sure that I load up on about 50 to 60% of my water in the morning before i leave (then I make sure that most of it has returned to the water supply.) As for the deuce, I didn't experience that luxury until day five! Remember, your body is literally dumping its toxins and morphing into something new. Every time I have to wee wee, I think of it as fat being flushed out. It's a bit annoying at times, but it beats the alternative, which was my former normal, extremely overweight self. Just think of it as a fat flush and link something positive to it.
