does any one ever get very lose bowels while trying to lose weight?

i have been losing weight now off and on for 5 yrs. i eat healthy follow the food pyramid guidlines, doctors orders. it is coming off very slowly sometimes only a 1/2 lb a week or sometimes stays the same for weeks. ive even plateaed for 6 mnths but i never have gained any weight back except while i was pregnant. i gained 80 lbs btwn april 06 and feb 07 and now am five lbs away from pre pregnancy weight but i noticed i have very loose bowels at least once a week. this had been ongoiing the whole time ive been losing weight. i just wondered if anyone had any suggestions as to what it might be a cause of or if they had this experience

Drink more water, and add more fiber to your diet. Should try to get at least 35g of fiber a day.

Look to see what you eat the day before? More of one kind of food? Usual suspects for me are dairy and meat (I only eat meat 1x/month or so).
