Alright, my roommate has been having some odd digestive issues lately, and I was wondering if I could get some insight.
Basically, he eats a very clean diet, but he has to go number 2 up to six times a day, often with little warning. Other info: he's a big guy, 6'6", about 215, and is a crazy biker - he bikes about 30 miles (2 hours) every day, plus he's started recently doing some lifting after work. He's a reasonably strong guy, rowed heavyweight crew in college. Also he's an invest banking analyst, so he's got a very stressful work environment, long hours, and he has trouble sleeping at night.
A typical day's eating schedule for him might look like:
4 crowns of broccoli, 3 large carrots + almond butter, 6 hardboiled eggs, 3-4 servings of nuts, two bowls of home-cooked chili (beef, broccoli stocks, cabbage, peppers, onions, tomatoes + olive oil), an apple, a pear + a couple servings of grapes, entire head of lettuce for lunch, 2-3 glasses of 1% milk, half an avocado, and up to a whole cooked chicken (maybe a half on average). 4-5 liters of water. Alcohol on the weekends, not excessively though.
During the weekdays he bikes every morning before work, on weekends he bikes later in the day and eats more beforehand than during the week.
As I was just forced to witness, his stool is not normal - he's literally pooping vegetables, like recognizable chunks of broccoli
It's not really diarrhea but it happens that suddenly, and is that insubstantial/airy.
Any ideas? He says that things calm down a bit when he cuts down on biking (as you may have guessed, he is one crazy mofo). I know very little about diet, hopefully this is obvious, as it's kind of gross lol.
