help! VERY frequent loose bowel movements.

i have been having this issue for roughly 10 years now. almost immediately after eating, i have a strong urge to have a bowel movement, and even between meals this happens, up to 5 times per day. my stool is always very loose, sometimes just regular old diarrhea. i spoke to a dietician recently who told me that this could be caused by a lack of protein in my diet, and she suggested that i include protein at every meal. this makes sense to me for losing weight, but i am not sure it would be beneficial to my digestive issue. i should point out that i am twice the weight i should be for my height, which raises more questions. if i am digesting my food so quickly, wouldn't it make sense that i would be thin? i don't understand. any idea of what else could possibly be going on? advice?

I would try adding fiber to your diet. The fiber will soak up the moisture of the diarrhea (this is what a Dr. told my mom) in the bowel. You can take it in a pill form like one a day.

Maybe it is the water supply, if you live in a municipal area they treat water with several chemicals, chlorine, flouride, ... watch what you drink, for me I can only drink filtered water (under the sink and refrigerator), brewed ice tea, brewed coffee, ... see if this is helpful.
