Digestive effects

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Tue Dec 06, 2005 10:09 am

When I exercise, particilarly walking up hill, I end up needing to go to the loo....really badly. Anybody else experience this? Any explanations? My guess would be the body switches energy from digesting food to powering muscles, and the food then gets shunted through the system, but that's just a guess.

15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

I always thought that this happened because I usually drink before exercise, during and after. I'm usually busting to go 1/2 way though too. Do you drink a lot of water before or during your walk? This could be why.

I'd tend to say that when going up hill, our body is slightly angled therefore our upper legs are pressing slightly on our belly fat, making the added pressure on the bladder.
