Question Pale Stool

Today I have had really pale, light yellow stools. What does this mean?

The discolored stool may just be from something you ate. I know there are times that when I eat chicken my stool is also lighter than usual and often a yellowish color and if I eat red meat it tends to be darker.....more normal. I wouldn't hesitate just yet. See if what you're eating may be the answer. If it really gets to bothering you maybe you should consult a doctor. Just a suggestion.

Yeah, agreed, its usually something you ate (for pale color, maybe an excess amount of cheese or something like that?).

If it keeps up for more than a couple of days more, then you might want to consider calling the doctor.
