Is vegetarianism good or bad for your digestive health?

I've heard from various sources that the diet can help with constipation but it can also cause more bloating and gass. Have any of you had a problem with this? Or has it helped your bathroom habits/digestion instead of hurting it?

I'm recovering from severe weight loss due to digestive problems and an eating disorder....I hope that I can still be a vegetarian because of my beleifs but if its harming my stomache I'm not sure what I should do....

Has anyone else gone through this type of situation?

Also, I cant tolerate beans or a lot of soy...if that makes any difference?

Well...I've been recording my intake at fitday.com to make sure I get enough calories (dont know how well I'm doing with that though....) and it records fiber as well..

I average about 20-25 grams a day...is that high or low or inbetween? I feel stupid but I just dont understand what is HIGH fiber or wut not....meh...
