    So I think I am pretty healthy. I eat right about 98% of the time. I don't go to fast foods, I take Vitamin E and Fish Oil. I work out alot. I usually get enough rest. But I have noticed that I go to the bathroom about 2 times a day. ( a BM) It's not diarrhea, but i am not sure if I should being going this much. Is there a potential problem?

    Well, how long have you been going twice a day for? If it's been happening for a long time with no other side effects, then it sounds like nothing.

    But I'm guessing that if it had been happening for a long period of time, you would think it was completely normal and probably would not be asking about it.

    If you are really concerned you could always check with your physician

    What goes in, must come out. All depends how much you eat and when you eat. 1-2x a day is normal.

    I would think that sounds fine. If you're eating a lot of fiber or other good for the GI foods, then sure you're going to have more BMs. Better than the alternative. Now, if you were going 4, 5, or more times a day, then I'd say see a doctor. But sounds like you're worrying for nothing.

    Relax. That's not a problem. You're very physically active I'm sure and that accelerates digestion, er 'movement'.

    Uhhh I go just as often. If there's poop in me I would prefer if it made it's way out as expeditiously as possible. I don't want it hanging around. It can't be good for you to have poop building up in you. I know a chick who would go like once a week. I know she had some health problems as well. I'm not sure if her slow digestion was the cause but just think of all that bacteria in your feces not leaving your body except once a week... Twice a day sounds like a good thing to me as long as it's not diarrhea.
