Here's another word for poop. BM! I have at least two BM's a day. Healthy oils really loosens things up and keeps the colon clean and moving. My daughter is on a salad kick so we're eating more veggies as well! Another thing that helps keep you regular is exercise.

Definitely the funniest post ever! How can you not answer?

It depends on what you eat, the more fiber you eat, the more often you go. Most people don't go often because they eat a ton of processed foods and very little fiber. If you don't go every other day, it's not considered 'normal' and you're supposed to see a doctor to make sure nothing is wrong.

I eat fruits, veggies, nuts, and whole grains while drinking a ton of water every day but have little red meat or processed food....and I go every day, usually more than once :)

Wow, 4 days between bowel movements means you aren't eating enough fruits, vegetables, and fiber. I remember my biology teacher in highschool saying you should poop twice a day, and if at least one of those isn't "floating" you aren't eating enough fruit/vegetables.

Haha, sorry that's so specific. I poop twice a day, once in the morning and once after lunch. Everyone in our household poops first thing in the morning, hahaha.

I go pretty much every day? I think. Some people are obsessed with their bowel movements, that's what I find weird. As long as it's not longer than 3 days between you're fine. My MIL is obsessed with my sons bowel movements and I'm pretty sure I change at least 1 normal looking poo every day so I fail to see how he is "constipated".

Haha, I agree that this post is funny! Although I disagree with what some people are saying about not enough fruit and veggies making you Not go as often. I actually notice if I eat really well, that includes drinking plenty of water and not eating any processed foods, I am the opposite and find it harder to go even every other day. Both my mother and grandmother are the same! Everyone is different. I'm not a doctor that's for sure but I was told if it's normal for you, then things are fine, but to seek help if you have a change in habits.

4 days is unhealthy, most I would say go every 1-2 days. Health experts I hear say that if you do not poop multipule times a day (like 3) you are considered backed up.

My boyfriend is giggling because you wrote poop in parenthesis and he wants to add other variations for you: shat, shit, took the browns to the superbowl, desicated, internally processed nutrionally drained biological output, dropped fecal matter? Excriment? :) Hope this helps!
