Re: when your poop is thin

A stool is usually thin because you are eating too much insoluble fiber that causes BMs -- fruits and veggies can cause some people a fast transit time.

Soluble fiber absorbs fluids and bulks up your stool.
I am a big believer in take a water soluble fiber supplement twice daily. I have been using psyllium for many years -- started with Metamucil but now I use Wal Mart's Equate brand.

Re: when your poop is thin

I have been taking Psyllium ever since I discovered this board due to having a few Bowel problems, ie haemerrhoids. Although, for the most part, my BM’s are still not “properly” formed, I am far more regular. Instead of going 10 to 15 times a day, I now go between my “normal” 2, to 4 or 5 times a day. Mostly in the morning. My diet is far from perfect, and I know everyone is different, but I never forget my Pysllium. Thank you Harry.
