Mushy Stool

Posted by Tatiana on August 13, 2000 at 00:28:37:

Is it true that vegetables, fiber, fruits can cause mushy stool if one isnt use to all these typed of food? If I overdo, I usually have 3 BM's. Would this be considered diarrhea? Thanks

Hi, Tatiana.

Three mushy stools a day is about as healthy as one can get. Two may be enough and one would be enough in a % of people. If you continue the same diet for about 6 months, your stool habits will even out to whatever is YOUR healthy normal.

If everyone had this condition, appendicitis would disappear, cancer of the colon would be nearly unheard of, there would be little colitis, NO diverticulosis, etc.

You GO, girl!

Thank you Walt for answering, I hope that you are fully recovered and doing well! I find it hard to believe that this kind of stool is healthy. I usually pass hard stool 98% of the time. So when Ive overdone it on veggies, fruits, and water, I am amazed that I awaken and have a normal BM (normal for me) then the next 1 or 2 is an urgency to go, and it comes out fast and is muchy (this is normal??) And if I go a third time, all within 2 hours, I have to strain and the stool is man many every small soft 'pieces' of stool. have you ever heard of such a pattern? Thanks again for answering, if you say Im doing the right thing, then so be it. :)

Hi, Tatiana.

I stand by my description. However, this varies from 1-3 in healthy people and who knows what is best for you? All I know for sure is that mushy stools are healthier for you than the hard stools you are describing here.

Consider: you will not know what is normal for any diet until about 6 months after you change to it. You first have to change your entire colonic ecology and that takes a while.

Give your body a chance to adjust. That does not happen in a few days (or weeks).

Walt
