speeding up digestion

Posted , 1 user is following.

ive always had this weird thing about pooping where i feel like i have to poop everything ive eaten out all at once. i eat once a day, so i usually expect everything to be ready as waste after like 10-12 hrs after ive eaten. i have a super fast metabolism, and ive tried and tested myself many times to make sure that this is the case.

my routine is as such: i eat, i go about 12 hrs after i eat, and an hour or 2 before i eat again, i try to go again. that 2nd time i try to go, usually nothing is released, which is all the comfort i need to assure myself that my digestive system is working the way i want it to. my 1st attempt is an hr long without fail, 1

but i dont feel constipated or have diarrhea anything. basically, i want everything i eat to be released as waste at the same time.

however, in the past yr, in that 2nd attempt, i have actually been releasing. this has caused me so much anxiety. i realize that it may be because some of the food i eat is not fully digested and turned into waste by the time i attempt to go.

i have looked for a solution, but honestly, I am at my wits end. laxatives are not an option, and if i attempt to eat in those 12 hrs beween when I eat and the 1st time i go, i experience extreme discomfort.

i have been following this routine for yrs, but only recently have i had problems. its not rly anything that someone should worry abt, after all im going the normal amount that a person should go right? i am also extremely healthy in every other aspect.

its just that i get so much anxiety knowing that i may not be completely "empty" (as in the digestive system) after my 1st attempt to poop after ive eaten.

for this reason, is there anything i can do to poop out everything ive eaten as fast as possible? how can i speed up digestion? how can i get food to become waste as fast as possible?
