I'm 36. I feel fine, no stomach issues. However I've noticed in the last week my stool is dark. When I wipe, it has a greenish tinge. This is new for me, it's never happened before and I'm wondering if it's diet related or if there can be something wrong.
Again, I feel fine, haven't lost or gained weight, am active & healthy.
Can anyone give me any insight?

Hope you get an answer. I have developed the same problem. Feel fine, no other problems except trying to lose weight. Am trying liquid diet and had a couple of rough days with it so ate way too much of the pudding supplement; hope it was all the soy or the Benefiber.
Green Stools are generally nothing to worry about. It can be caused by a number of things, like the types of food your eat (green or purple colored food), some types of supplements or because the food went thru the digestive system too fast. For me antacids can sometimes cause green stools. If you don't have any other symptoms I wouldn't worry about it.
