Reply to "I've noticed something..."

I am genetically built to eat all of the food.

fq: I don't know if this method appeals to you, but here's what I decided to do right from the get go. I decided that this new organ of mine is going to do what I tell it do, not the other way around. It's an uphill climb sometimes, as I'm constantly throwing things at my pouch that most people probably wouldn't advise (my dinner last night was half a large pepperoni pizza and some cherry pepsi). I tend to hold it perhaps more than one normally would simply because I want to stretch this thing out. My goal is to get it to the size of a normal rectum (I don't know if that's an attainable goal, but I'll give it every good reason to expand).

I look at it this way: The human body is a ridiculous machine and is capable of some amazing adaptations, but it needs to have a reason to adapt. I figured if I want my pouch to work to my satisfaction, then I'd better give it a reason to adapt to it's new role. I'm not satisfied with treating it like a poor substitute for my once mighty colon, but rather as my new "colon."

That's just my view on the matter. No doubt it wouldn't work for everybody, but I feel I've got to kick my butt to get my butt in shape (so to speak).
