I have been having a good amont of olive oil, nuts and oily fish recently. I think i may have problems absorbing fat because my stools are very loose. I need the loo many times a day, and often suddenly. Also flatulance probs.

Now i'm cutting back on fat ( mostly the oil ) in my diet, it's improving.

Has anyone else noticed this with consuming more oil ?

I've read that not absorbing fat and excreeting it ( steatorrhea ) can lead to EFA and vitamin A deficency. So maybe there is some link to poor skin ?

Thanks
