Re: Thin Stools
Thin and flat stools are usually caused by not intaking enough water soluble fibre --
To have normal BMs a person needs soluble as well as insoluble fibre --- 25 to 35 gms daily-- in the UK you need to get more soluble fibre like psyllium seed husk that absorbs fluids and bulks up your stools.
Soluble fibre is contained in the inner parts of grains, beans and peas. All root veggies like potatoes, carrots, beets and turnips all absorb water.
You also need to intake 6 to 8 glasses of water daily.
