TMI - Bathroom Stuff

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

So when I was 19, I had my gallbladder removed. One thing almost everyone told me was that my bathroom habits would change a LOT. I was skeptical, but they were right. I would eat and within an hour at the VERY most, I would need to use the bathroom. I adjusted to this and just assumed this was the new normal.

Fast forward 21 years. I am now eating healthier - more fruits and veggies, more fiber and whole grains, less fat, less junk. Know what? My bathroom habits changed AGAIN.

I seriously NEVER made the connection between my poor food choices and the effect it was having on my digestive system. Based on what people had told me, I just assumed my lack of a gallbladder was responsible and left it at that. Turns out it wasn't so much that, as it was the continuous intake of junk.

Who knew.

    Funny! Not so much your bathroom habits, but your honesty about the change after eating properly.
