Overll, a vegetarian diet is considered better for your digestive system because it typically contains more fiber (the average meat-eating american only gets 1/2 of the fiber they actually need), which can help "keep things regular".

Initially, vegetrinisn can cause more bloating and gas because your body takes time to adjust if you're eating a lot more fiberous food. However, once you're body ajusts, things typically go back to normal in those cases.

I've gotten the impression from my N and from reading that some people with ED have trouble with constipation/bloating at first simply because thier body is so used to having so little food/bulk going through it that it takes time to adjust.

Hope that helps
