I should also mention that during the times I never had a bowel movement, I also didn't feel like having one either.. I don't know if that is considered constipation, but I don't consider it constipation.  To me, constipation is when you feel like you have to go but you can't.  Everytime I actually felt like I had to go, I had no problem with my BMs except for the times I ate non-raw took a little extra effort.

Also, I noticed I would see certian things come out, such as reddish stools after eating watermelon, or grape skins after eating grapes, however, following sequential eating and the fact that everything should come out in the same order in which they were eaten, sometimes I never really saw the meat parts ever come out, so that also leads me to believe the meat is either fully or mostly digested.  Or I could possibly have just not been able to tell which parts of my stool were meat parts.   -\
Hi, I'm 26, around 5'4" and ~124lb, no real significant health problems other than hyperventilating when running/exercising (that my doc said was because of the smog/asthma), fatigue, and really bad acne.
I'd preferably be a carnivore/very low carb, but I have had a very hard time finding grass-fed or even organic fats, organs, and marrow. I consume raw dairy, but I do not eat much vegetables.. however, I do love fruit.Trying WAI.
I live with my dad, so I also have to sneak any raw meat eating.

The Bristol stool scale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_Stool_Scale) seems to be widely accepted as a standard for determining what constipation is. BM frequency and sensations are too variable and vague to use as a standard that we can all understand.

My wife eats eat by the spoon(and she is very picky, my kids eat it, my 2 year old uses it as a dipping sauce for meat, Its a paleo dessert. But I don't know anyone else {besides marks daily apple} who raves about it as I do

What's your opinion on Mark's comment that coconut butter is "addictive"?

I totally agree with mark so be warned, but at least its a positive addiction, just like I am addicted now to raw animal foods, but its a beneficial addiction. Like I said I use it as a dipping sauce for my meats and also dip fat trimmings in it. I go a couple of days without it every now and then, but then I get such a strong craving I pig out on about 2 tablespoons with a pound of beef and a little fat trimming and I feel great, no shame like with other vices. It may be that somewhere subconsciously it takes the place of dairy biased creamy desserts, It has a cream like quality that euphoric in itself

Yeah, but the thing is sometimes I've had closer to type 1 stools that were fairly easy to pass, at least only with a little extra effort than usual, (and I usually only got them recently after eating non-raw foods) whereas I have had times with type 2 or 3 stools that were nearly impossible to pass, and took tremendous effort to pass (usually infrequently though, and only before I started raw) which, I think, means I was more constipated then.
