The Scoop on Poop

Pooping is like the State of the Union Address for from your body. Your morning constitutional lets you know critical details about your digestion and hydration levels, while getting rid of the excess waste (unlike the government)!

If something is wrong, usually your poo will indicate what kind of problem you are having. Anyone with autoimmune, allergy, inflammatory, and other gut/intestinal disorders carefully monitor their output for consistency in time and material. Too firm or too soft lets you know your body is out of whack. Of course, not being able to go is a huge problem in itself. Constipation is something that can kill you. So is diarrhea. So, it’s nice to keep a happy medium of movements.

The most commonly used poop health scale is the Bristol Scale. I took the time to fix up the scale, so you get to know your poops on a more personal level. Go ahead, print it out and put it in your bathroom!

Also, think about how you poop.  The modern toilet is a modern invention, and humans have spent thousands of years perfecting bodies to squat that shit out, literally.

I can’t wait until the hardcore paleo people begin advocating the poop-squat as a part of the modern caveman’s lifestyle.

Anyway, if you’re having trouble pinching one out, and squatting isn’t working, make sure you’re getting enough:

  1. Water
  2. Fiber
  3. Exercise
  4. Healthy oil (coconut, olive, avocado, bacon grease)
Often, a heap of collard greens is all it takes to get me moving!

    Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated

      I am using a free theme through wordpress. Not HTML coding required. The only downside is that I know HTML and there are a few things (header) I cannot change without paying for. However, this theme isn’t too bad!
