    no not really, how much are you eating? when i was fat i used to eat alot and i used to shit a lot too. it necessarily doesn't mean that your metabolism has sped up

    it just means you're eating more/getting more fiber

    then you are not eating enough or getting enough fiber, and thats pretty unhealthy for you.

    If they started happening simultaneously, there's probably some good chance they're related, but you're not pooping out your fat.

    Even at below 2500 calories.... I still shit 2-3 times per day.

    I recall reading something about people that jog... called 'runner's trot' I believe.
    Running apparently diarhea in some if I understood correctly.

    just fyi, not having a bowel movement at least once a day puts you at a much higher risk for colon cancer. you guys need to get more fiber and drink more water.
