Vegan Poo

I know this has been discussed before, but I just have to say how amazing taking a vegan crap is. I swear I can sit, poop, wipe, and wash in under 60 seconds. and yes, my hands are clean!!!

Even when pregnant (and your are SUPPOSED to be constipated) I was still going 2-3 times per day with no problem.
After surgery where most people are blocked up for a week, I went on day 2!

One thing I miss is the quality readin' time in the jon. Now I don't even bother picking up a book or mag because I know there's no time!!! :D :D :D

both mine and dh's poop smells MUCH less....I can't remember the last time the house was wafting with shit smell from a messy poo.  ok, I'll say it...my shit don't stink! :-D ::)

being vegan just has so many benefits.  ::)

Sadly, I do not poo three times a day.  But considering how before I was vegan, I was a once a week crapper and would spend at least 20 minutes and would only crap at home. Now I crap at least every other day if not daily! That's quite the improvement for me! I'm very proud of it. 
I'm so grateful for this topic.  I have this question that's been bugging me but I've been too embarrassed to ask before now.  Is it normal for vegan poo to float?

that's awesome you poo normally now! being vegan has so many positives, it's insane :)

OMG this thread is awesome and SOOO true! I poop very easy when I've eaten vegan or vegetarian, I notice that If I eat a meat product (which I do like maybe once a month) It backs things up for 2 days.  like (graphic lol) if I eat some corn, I know that corn is coming out sometime the same day. If I eat that same corn with a piece of meat, I kid you not, It won't come out for like 2 days and I find that disturbing.  :o

Not to rag on the husband here but he bothers me, he's the type of guy who will sit on the toilet with a poop, pushing so hard he looks like hes gonna pass out and he'll only pass a turd the same size as what the cat does.... Oh well he likes his massive amounts of dairy and lacking in any vegetables. It used to bother me, it still bothers me now but I've realized I can't/don't feel like changing him anymore.

Not to show off ( <- not really true), but I just had about a 2-foot / 0.6 m poop.  I didn't know that was possible. 

I do that all the time, and often brag about it to the husband LOL reference above comments :-D

I miss my reading time on the toilet.  I am still amazed at how much is there with so little effort.  When I eat one meal w/ ssome meat, I see an increase in effort, not lack of volume.  If I eat a second meal the next day (unusual) then things get bad again and I wonder why I did it to myself.

(DH complains when DD and I cook veg*n more than 2 days in a row and he still gets meat sandwiches for lunch.  He just went into the bathroom to "meditate" for the second time this morning because the first was unsuccessful)

I have a weird question but this seems to be the best, and least embarrassing, place to ask.  Is there anything in brown (cheep) lentils that would cause dark brown poo?  I am on day 2 of a stomach bug and have only eaten lentil soup and fruit for the last 36 hrs or so.  I am slightly concerned because it is a lot darker than normal for me unless I am eating certain things that I know cause it to be darker.  (the red beets a few days ago were "interesting" but they are out of my system)  I do eat some lentils on a regular basis but not this many.  I am just wondering if it falls within normal or if I should be concerned about something else going on like some internal bleeding.

dark poo = okay
black = go to the doctor
obvious blood in stools = emergency room

Personally I think you're probably dehydrated, even if you drink tons of fluids when you're sick, your body has issues (I know this because of experience), I drank over a gallon of water a day when sick and was having issues. Even mild dehydration will cause you to have darker stools, so will lots of unused iron in your stools, could be the fiber. Hell, it could be lots of things.

Bottom line is: I'm almost 100% sure you're fine, so stop stressing because that'll only make it worse. And if you get constipated (dehydration + dark poo usually leads to constipation) try to "drink" 2-4 tablespoons of oil, olive or mineral oil works best. Its tried and true, my grandma swore by it. Although again be careful, diarehha while sick is just as bad as constipation LOL :-D

have you been eating a lot of processed sugars lately? If so thats probably why. Eating too many sugars can cause an imbalance in the gut and even if you're eating a ton of veg and fruit can cause a fermentation nightmare.
If the answer is, no you haven't. Then I dunno, probably normal :P if it starts to be uncomfortable (not just your nose) then I would suggest reviewing your diet

I've had gastric bypass a few months ago and serious constipation is a common occurrence for bypassers.  It's not unusual for them to live taking Mirilax and Benefiber and such every day to keep things moving.... and sometimes that doesn't even work well.

Me? I go every 1-2 days and sometimes twice a day.  Easy and comfortable and quick!

And yeah, my poo has little to no smell.

My husband's, who is still lacto-ovo could kill someone with the stench.
