I have just lost 7 stone on lighterlife diet which involved not eating anything but their shake packs and 4 litres of water per day. I found that I only passed stools once per week at most which were very solid and difficult to pass, about 4 weeks in I noticed small amounts of blood on the toilet paper.

Recently have come off the diet and started eating a healthy meal each day however the increased food mass has played havoc with my bowel movements, I pass nearly every day and they are quite painful - sometimes with blood in the toilet as well as on the paper.
Has anyone ever experienced this? Im just worried it will never heal and become a real problem.
Im only 22 and now weigh 13 stone
