the first week it will be a alot, esp since you will have lots of gas. i can't remember the exact number of times but i know sometimes i was going once an hour. And it will also depend on what you eat of course.
But once you start on a more regular diet and your body begins to adjust it will slow, and the gas will lessen A LOT. be sure you let that gas out though, it will cause a blow out if it builds up.
You should be at about 4-6 a day by 3-4 weeks or so, again depending on what you eat.

No matter what kind of day you are having, take five minutes to sing loudly and dance like a fool!
