Brief Answer:
Eating nuts can cause frequent bowel movement.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

Nuts contain fibers which help to fasten intestinal transit causing frequent bowel movement. If you consume to many nuts (especially if you aren't used to do this) you will experience diarrhea, gas, flatulence and frequent bowel movement.

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
p.s: If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask me again.
