I'm a male and 25. I don't drink alcohol, smoke or take drugs of any kind however my diet isn't the best and I'm underweight.
In the last two/three months or so, I've had diarrhea about 6/7 times which is far more than I usually get over a year.
It tends to come on after I overeat or if I've eaten fatty foods (the last three times I've had it has been after an English breakfast, a huge bbq and a large McDonalds meal). I eat three meals a day however it's usually the bigger meal that creates the urge to go the toilet. If I was to give some insight, my first two meals are probably around 300-400 calories each and my last one is around 700-1000 which is usually when I end up having diarrhoea, I usually have one episode (two at most) and then I'm fine.
My diet as a whole is poor. I don't take vitamins, probiotics or eat much veg at all. I sometimes have muesli with greek yoghurt in the morning but usually it's a croissant or toast. I eat a fair amount of red meat, chicken, potatoes, bread, pastries, fruit and the ocassional fast food takeaway.
I'm also lactose intolerant but still have a very miniscule amount of milk with my tea. As mentioned above, I don't drink alcohol, don't smoke or do drugs of any kind.
On the most part, I don't tend to get any stomach pain and the colour of the stool is brown with no signs of blood or mucus.
Does anybody know what the culprit could be? Is it that I don't eat a lot and then when I do have a big meal, it doesn't sit right and pushes the stool along or could it be something I need to see the doctor about?
