Not gaining through going to toilet more often?

I started a high protein/carbs diet a week or two ago but have noticed that instead of the usual one a day, how do I put this, 'longer' trip to the toilet, I tend to be going two or three times - usually only in the morning though.

I tend to have for my meals (in this order) - four slices of toasted wholemeal bread, rice cakes+fruit+1 1/2 scoops whey protein in water, two chicken salad sandwiches, 'complan' meal replacement shake with 1 1/2 scoops whey protein, spagetti bolognese or chicken curry + rice in low fat sauce, 1 1/2 scoops whey protein in semi-skimmed milk before bedtime. I tend to train in the evening. Not mad keen on tuna and allergic to eggs.

Is my diet right? I weigh about 11 stone and want to put on maybe a stone and a half as quick as poss but am worried that the more frequent trips to the toilet are affecting this.

Can anyone help?
Thanks.

    um, well i guess if you eat more you're gonna go to the loo more, but most of it is bacteria and stuff, not undigested/wasted food, although I'm not a poo expert!

    Glad to hear it GBL (thats james dept!) generally you would loose water not nutrients through more frequent loo visits, unless you had some kind of gastric infection.

    Thanks for your help anyway. Bit of a funny question I know - might have to change me user name now.
