Serious Response

Foul smelling stool can also be a sign of a medical condition Link below

Usually it is diet related. Fatty diets tend to be associated with this.

What's TMI? Also, the title of the thread is "What foods make bad smelling stool?" and this is a diet and health related website. Not really that offensive.

LOL Pooping is a natural process--if you didn't poop, you'd be a giant bloated blob and probably would not smell very good... LOL

That being said, It should not be something that's off topic.... it's part of our digestive processes...

Anyways, I know that some foods create really stinky gas for me--such as GARLIC and onions, eggs, etc.... broccoli and Asparagus give you foul smelling urine as well.. I believe I read somewhere it has to do with having more "sulfphur" in the food.

Fiber tends to make me flatulent (farty) if I don't chew it well enough-- Sometimes I "gulp" my food, so the digestive saliva in my mouth doesn't have enough time to help break down the foods and I find it gives me horrendous gas when it comes to high fiber foods such as whole grains (cereals like Kashi are notorious for giving me "gas bubbles" in my intestines and causing great pain if I don't chew it long enough.)

Other things that can make me gassy - Milk products that have not been cooked (i.e. regular milk, some ice creams.) If you are lactose intolerant, this can cause great intestinal distress--bloating, gassiness, etc... For me, eating some yogurt with milk seems to help--because the yogurt has the natural bacteria that are starting to break down the lactose...

Olean - (Olestra) - too much of it (warns the package) can give you "anal leakage" and gas... I think that also goes for things like Splenda and other sugar replacements if you are sensitive to them--they're generally not natural products, so your body has no idea how to properly process them!

To the OP-- keep track of what you are eating and see how it affects you--If you find that you are particularly stinky after certain foods, and you don't like that, you may want to avoid them, or eat them only when you don't have to go somewhere where flatulance will be a problem.

I do recall that if your stool is BLACK or bloody (due to blood) then you will want to contact a doc about that. Also if it changes in texture or size for no apparent reason--that may be a health issue as well...

No, I'm not a doctor, so of course, seek the advice of your doctor if you are having concerns...

I realize that some people have been brought up to learn that you don't talk about your excrement processes in polite company, but being in the dark is not good either. The original poster had a good question...

Great thread! Was wondering how many bm's is normal? Since I started dieting I'm up to 3 or 4 per day. I used to have 1 if I were lucky. Normal? Or not?

very normal- you're getting rid of all the crap (no pun intended) in your body. it's also becoming more productive so it's getting rid of all the nastiness that's been lining your guts. think of it as extra weight-loss! :)

A major source of superstinky poop is old food that takes days or even weeks to excrete.

Apparently, the "perfect" digestive tract produces a BM about half an hour after you eat a meal. It shouldn't be particularly foul-smelling because the food has only spent 18 hours in your digestive tract (remember, this is describing perfection).

9:07 here: that is great news! because my 3 or 4 times a day are within 30 mins of my small meals. I feel "lighter" already! ;-) oops, "gotta go"

Yes, eating healthier (i.e. higher fiber foods, less fats and "junk") definitely helps your bowels move quicker!

I find that the "apple a day" or a banana a day really helps things along. :-)
