May be too much information but I need to know if I am normal...
Was Grok's poo more soft/runny than hard? If not, what do I need to change about my diet? Or is my body simply adjusting?
Can you please post a picture of you standing next to a pile of your poo so that we can judge your body dimension-to-poo ratio and determine optimum poo rigidity for you?

I thought I may be eating too much protein, but it was 1 gram (or less) per pound of lean muscle like Mark suggested. Maybe I should cut back anyways. The only reason I wasnt was because I am training of a 10 mile race so I am running a lot and dont want to deplete my muscle mass. I guess I will have to deal. Thanks for your help.

I hope you find the poos for which you are searching..
My main experience with great poo is through my 100% well-fed (primal + some occasional soaked/sprouted/soured grains) Grokling#4. From birth to age 3, his poos always pass so soft (not watery, but soft & not formed/hard) & effortlessly that there is nothing left for me to wipe (he was EC'd = no poo'ing in diapers and leaving a smeary mess). The only exceptions have been when he had a tummy thing once or twice, and when he goes to Grandma's and eats SAD.
So far Grokling #5 is showing the same pattern. And every pet we've ever had & fed naturally.
