    indigestion from training?

    sorry if it's covered in the big thread, but couldn't really find much on it.

    nah, just bumped my training up to at least 2x a day, 4 days a week, and 1x 2 days a week. i'm doing conditioning in the morning, and BJJ at night.

    the conditioning training is pretty grueling, i can feel changes in my muscles after only a week of training like this. i like it a lot. the first few days hurt like a bitch, but by now i'm pretty cool with it.

    conditioning is a nice mix of pushups, burpees, pullups, dips, GHD situps, back/hip extenders, boxjumps, boxjumps with weights, deadlifts, backsquats, pushpresses, thrusters, rowing, cleans, heavy ball throwing, KB exercises, et al. every day, a new routine my instructor tortures me and a couple other masochists with.

    BJJ is about 20 mins conditioning, then technique.

    so i do conditioning about 5x a week or so, plus my BJJ. since i started this (used to just do BJJ, with the odd conditioning routine when i could make it) i've been hungry as a ************, and... consequently eating like a ************. i'm shedding weight as well (~185 last week monday, 181.3 today) and i'm generally more energetic and feel more powerful.

    but I FART constantly. i'm shitting more often, and while the consistency isn't really a problem, my stool is a bit on the soft side, generally, more than i think it should.

    is this normal? just a result of the abrupt increment in food intake? will it go back to normal? or is there something else i should check out?

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    well, i generally don't have breakfast (i live far from the city, and the commute is a bitch, so i don't have much time). haven't since i was a kid, so for better or worse, i'm kind of used to it by now.

    i do get hungry about 9am, which i normally end up going to a corner fruit salesman on the street and having a couple of bananas. cheap and tasty, and i hear that they have these famed nutrient thingies which are apparently good for people.

    conditioning at about 11am or so. as soon as i finish that (have finished at 11:30pm, or at nearly 2pm, depending on how abusive a day it is), i go home and have lunch. the staple lunch here in Dominican Republic is something like white rice, beans, chicken (fried or oven baked) or some other type of meat (fried pork, steak maybe). or other days i'll have pasta, or mashed green plantains (typical dish here) with eggs and sausages. it's generally a carb heavy dish with a protein side of meat.

    i generally don't snack in the afternoon, but sometimes i'll sneak in something sweet if i feel like it, or just any snack really. i go to BJJ at about 7:30ish, depending when i can leave the university, and train till 9:45ish generally. afterwards, it's home, and probably a couple of sandwiches, tuna salad, or whatever i can make quickly. i generally try to get something with protein too, like if i feel i haven't had much, i'll fry 2 eggs to go with my sandwiches.

    btw, i was recently tested for a bunch of ****, and post-training transformation (+60lbs lighter, and i've gained muscle, so it's even more fat than that) i'm pretty damn healthy. my bad cholesterol is pretty low, my good one is off the charts, and everything is in order.

    another note, i'm not sure, but i think, based on the recent activity, my stool may have been greenish lately as well.

    edit: i'm also drinking massive amounts of water, generally take a multivitamin tablet every day, and also often drink 1 gatorade after training, blue or purple (which might have to do with green ****?)

    It sounds like you need to get more fiber into your diet. This may be why it is on the soft-side. You need to get 25-35g of fiber per day and it looks like you may be get a little over half.

    Getting probiotics (such as yogurt, as stated by Teh El Macho) into your system is also a good thing. It will help regulate you digestive system.

    Hope that helps.

    oi! been getting some yogurt in me (the kind you drink), i think it's helping. my stomach doesn't make noises any more (it's probably used to the excess food by now) and my stool consistency has gotten better. still though... i'm farting like a maniac.

    how much is the right amount of yogurt? i'm drinking about a glass a day.

    also, foods that are high on fiber recommendations? i eat mass amounts of white rice as it is, which i believe is high on fiber?

    No, sir.

    1) Go here.
    2) Search for NDB No: 20446 (Rice, white, long-grain, parboiled, unenriched, dry).
    3) Select "per 100g".

    White rice - fiber, total dietary: 2.2g/100g rice

    4) Repeat steps 1-3 with NDB No. 20036 (Rice, brown, long-grain, raw)

    Brown rice - fiber, total dietary: 3.5g/100g rice

    5) Repeat the above steps with NDB No: 20088 (Wild rice, raw).

    Wild rice - fiber, total dietary: 6.2g/100g rice

    6) Repeat the above step with NDB No: 20038 (Oats)

    Oats - fiber, total dietary: 10.6g/100g oats

    Eggs are what do me in. They are good but will leave you gassy. Oh and yogurt goes good with granola. I'm going through the same thing though. Good timing on this thread haha

    I heard that you use up enzymes when training, those enzymes could be used for digestion. I don't know if it's true or not.

    Digestive enzyme levels could be affected by training, but used up? Unless I'm missing something (which is possible), their purpose is to, y'know, digest things. So unless your "workout" involves pounding chili dogs, I think that's a myth.
