    Question Soft Stools

    Shop Now
    What foods will produce really soft stools?

    I've read Mark's description of what good stools should be like. Never have I had one like that. Mine have always been hard and sink to the bottom.

    Dried prunes and dried apricots help, but not enough to be functional. Is there anything else I can try?

    Less fiber, more water, more fat particularly coconut oil.

    I second the coconut oil - still amazed at what OD'ing on the stuff can do in that department...

    Yes, it definitely can be taken to the opposite extreme.

    My first experience with about 1TBL in some coffee, I was making a mad dash in about an hour. Since then, I guess I am use to it cuz it doesnt have that effect anymore. I am sure it still helps, but nothing like the very first time
    65lbs gone and counting!!

    I guess I'm abnormal. I ate 5 tablespoons of coconut oil once for fun. Didn't do a damn thing.

    The only time I ever had an issue with it was when I made these candy treats for a potluck out of coconut shreds, coconut oil, cocoa powder and a midge of stevia and some blueberries. (My first Primal Christmas.) They were so good I ate half the tray of them. That was not a brilliant idea.

    I've never had a problem with normal dietary quantities of it either.

    I'm another person that can eat large quantities without an issue.
