[pct-l] Poop-less on the Trail

I have been using unprocessed bran flakes for many years (starting when I was in my 20's. I am now 55 years old). I notice problems when I don't get my bran for a week or more. Above all don't take laxatives! Bran works so well, so naturally, you will use LESS toilet paper.
That's all I have to say about that.

Are you on the trail for more than a week?
Sometimes the drastic change in activity levels and meal selections take a week or so to work themselves out.
I would recommend switching to a high fiber diet a week before heading out
- kind of prime the system.
