I heard it on the show "You are what you eat", the Dr, on that show said it on many occassions to her overweight patients that were all experiancing digestive pains/problems because of the horrible foods/beverages they eat and have become obese from.
One of my doctors told me the same thing as well..." a healthy person with no "issues" typically goes anywhere from 1-3 times per day and everyday, which means that the system is working properly so long as it's normal stools with no pain, blood or discomforts in anyway." So even if you go only 1 time/day as long as it's everyday and things feel and look normal (THEY SHOULD RESEMBLE LARGE SAUSAGES IN SHAPE AND SIZE) then that's considered "normal"/"healthy"...1-3 times/day (going everyday) is apparently in Dr.s oppinions as "normal".
You would think that it does depend on how much you eat, but you have to remember, what you eat today doesn't "re-appear" for another 2-3 days from today.
