Vegetables and fruits have a combination of soluble and insoluble fiber.The amount of each is different in each food.
Vegetables have a higher percentage of insoluble fiber than fruit.The vegetables react differently in the colon than fruit.
The more insoluble fiber in vegetables provides the proper environment for the growth of good bacteria.The good bacteria destroys bad bacteria which cause problems.It also helps in the digestion of decaying food found in the large colon breaking it down into usable nourishment by transporting it into the blood stream.My own experience along with many others experienced stool form with vegetables. The opposite with even small amounts of eaten fruit.I would guess from what I read(see articles posted on the vitamin E site)that the beneficial growth of the good bacterias would extent throughout the length of the colon and promote healing. After many years,they finally concluded it was harmful bacteria that caused stomach ulcers. Why you had stool form than lost it is the reason I repeat my request about your diet.Diet is the cornerstone of the procedure and is the cause of lost form.I don't think diarrhea should eliminate the benefits of the procedure.Other procedure users have gone from diarrhea to form.The procedure has proven itself effective when done properly too many times.You are at home base.I would suggest
different vegetables or maybe one of the liquids is causing the problem.The colon is your best helper by sending correct information by way of the number bowel movements and stool form.Try walking which is good for the colon.Keep a record of foods eaten and the results.You will have to turn detective.Please keep posting.sheldon
