dang I love those things,wish I had a dozen right now
Good point. Cannot forget the water part of this equation.Yes fiber helps your body get your poop out your bottom. It also helps your body make soft poop which is easier to pass. But not just fiber, you need to drink enough water. That makes for softer stools.
One note on water consumption, more is not always better, something we used to be told just the opposite.I aim for around that much in a day, as well
If it’s hot and I’m tarping that goes up quite a bit
If I feel thirsty I drink. If I’m not peeing clear that means I’m dehydrated, doesn’t it?One note on water consumption, more is not always better, something we used to be told just the opposite.
Water is a natural cleanser, and you can overdo it which results in flushing out important nutrients, electrolytes, etc..
There is a formula for average water consumption, I'm too lazy to look it up. For me, I try to drink around 3 bottles of water per day.
Ohh boy, here we go! I was in a health forum and we discussed this to a tee.I’m confused. I thought more fibre in a diet was a good thing.

It is confusing because there are two types of fiber: Soluble and Insoluble.
Many people do not realize this and for people that want to keep
there stools soft its the soluble fiber that they wanted to avoid.
In a nutshell:
Soluble Fiber: As its name suggest this fiber tends to sit in your gut and
mixes in "solution" with the rest of your gut to form a gel like "bulk".
So too much of this type of fiber can really bulk up your stools.
Top sources of this fiber include oatmeal, beans, fruits and and veggies.
Insoluble Fiber: As its name suggest passes through your gut practically
unchanged, so it keeps things moving though your intestines helping to prevent
Top sources include flaxseed, lentils, All Bran cereal.
And actually all fiber sources contain both types of fibers in varying degrees
thats why they stress to have a well rounded diet.
Btw, they say most adults need between 25-40 grams/day.
I mix mine into yogurt, salad dressing, oatmeal.I found some flaxseed gonna give ‘er a go here shortly.
Maybe on some cereal? Or in yogurt?
The original Superfood. Can't go wrong with flaxseed.Hell I’ve sprinkled it on pizza, sandwiches and other things I’m eating. I have never tasted it. But I can always smell it when I open the bag and that’s a little wierd.
What a ****ty chart! I could of done better.
Lol,Who knew there was a poop chart?
That means someone researched this enough to view enough samples to be able to quantify the results
That sounds like a fun forum!Lol,
They've upgraded that chart since I saw it last on the other forum.
That's all we use to talk in certain sections over there, when to poop how long you should sit, what to do if it gets stuck, everything.
They also had a giant excel like chart on just about every food you could think of and its fibre content. We had it down to a science over there.
