ive noticed since ive started the 40/40/20 diet, i havnt gone to the toilet to hrrm.. how will i put to.. drop a log? lol as often as i used 2.. and right after id have a cheatmeal.. eg subway id end up goin within 30 minutes of leaving the place...
is this normal? and is this bad? ive kinda noticed i aint dropped as much bodyfat lately.. and its still hangin around.. maybe coz i havnt done as much cardio as i used 2..

funny you should mention this, the exact same thing happened to me when i started 40/40/20. My thoery was that i suddenly stopped eating so many carbs and was not getting enough fiber. But as soon as I would have a cheat meal, my cheet meal would be some kind of hamburger or something, and the combination of the extra greese and the carbs would fly right through me and out the other end =).

When you change your diet, the first symptoms that you get include bloating,thus bad digestion but it's gone after 4-5 days.It's very normal.

Yeah same here, I'm on a 40/40/20 and don't use the room half as often as I used to, but whenever I cheat..... KABOOM
