Well, squatting opens up the colon for fast and easy elimination, which is said to relieve constipation, straining issues, hemorrhoids, bloating and more. But what are we to do? Is it time for all-out bathroom renovations? No, there’s a simpler solution, and that’s where Squatty Potty comes to the rescue.

  1. I’ve used both primal fuel and dage control master formula. I could really tell a difference with the way I felt when taking the damage control master formula. The primal fuel is just delicious and made some really good protein pancakes and protein cookies

  2. Maybe I’m just not awake enough, but what is the contest for the squatty potty? I looked at the vid, went to the site, read and reread the blurb above. I’m confused.

    1. Hi Sherry, The contest is detailed under the picture of the Platinum Package 🙂

    1. Entry details are below the video and Platinum Package description.

      1. See, I took that as the entry for the supplement contest.

  3. I’ve used Primal Fuel. I like it in the morning before working out. I take Synthroid and I can’t eat or drink anything for an hour after I take it. By that time I’m on my way to work – where I work out in the fitness center. I drink Primal Fuel when I get arrive before I work out. It’s not heavy on my stomach and it doesn’t jack my blood sugar up, which as a diabetic is important for me.

  4. The vitamin D gave me awesome energy in the cold dark winter months up north. Absolute must-have when sunlight is not “available.”

  5. I’ve always wanted to try one of these and see how much a difference it makes.

    1. I bought one and within a week, it ended up in the storeroom. Since it reduces the contact your legs make with the toilet seat, it puts a lot of pressure on the back of your thighs. It ended up cutting off the blood circulation to my legs so I could barely stand up after! I found that the height of a toddler stool works great. Don’t waste your money – it’s just more stuff you’ll end up getting rid of.

      1. This isn’t real squatting. The gadget just decreases the angle of your knees by lifting your feet. It should be called the “Nifty Lifty”. Save yourself $25-$50 and just squat on the seat!

  6. Would we not accomplish the same effect of the Squatty Potty if we simply kept our feet on the floor and leaned far enough forward to place our chest on our thighs ?

    1. No, because your upper body would be horizontal rather than vertical — which is how it is in a REAL squat. (See my previous comment.)

      1. But the body angle as depicted in the diagram would remain unchanged in my scenario. Is it truly necessary for the upper torso to be vertical ? I guess that’s the real question. Thanks

        1. You will find some excellent information about squat-toilets (and a brief history of the throne-toilet) on the Nature’s Platform website. It describes the Squatty Potty/footstool method as “wishful squatting”. 😉

  7. I had extremely low vitamin d levels every year during my wellness check. I started taking your vitamin d last year 2 months before my appointment and my levels were finally in the normal range. Before finding MDA I never realized how important that one vitamin (hormone) was to overall health!

  8. While the squatty potty looks like a high quality item, you can substitute it out for a children’s bathroom step stool (no pun intended) if you’re strapped for cash.

    The only downsides are the children’s step stool is a little narrow and probably a bit shorter than the squatty potty.

  9. I’m using Primal Fuel as the gateway food to convert my family over to primal eating habits. The consumer culture has conditioned those who are less mindful to seek yummy convenience foods in attractive packaging. Meat and vegetables do not come in attractive packages and require mindful preparation procedures. Primal Fuel actually tastes better than other powdered drink mixes. Preparation requires no adult supervision. My kids love it and its welcome replacement to a Monster energy drink and a bag of kettle corn.

  10. I have seen the Squatty around… It is a cool idea. Makes a lot of sense. I like it!

  11. I haven’t used Primal fuel products in the past; however, I have attempted to use the nutritional elements as a guideline in the foods that I eat. My family and I eat a lot of farm fresh meat and vegetables to ensure we’re receiving the greatest benefits from the money we spend. Now this squatty potty would help in the excretion of urea!

  12. I returned from Thailand this weekend where you often find footprints on the conventional toilet seats where people have been squatting instead of sitting. Some toilets even in Bangkok have a mixture of traditional squat toilets with modern sitting toilets. A word of warning however. I also saw a gruesome photo on a Thai website of a guy in hospital with deep lacerations to his thigh and buttocks. Accompanying this photo was one of the conventional toilet he had been squatting on broken in two with his blood all over it. Proceed with caution.

  13. Unfortunately the photo accompanying the post is of a product that, while beautifully designed, is not actually manufactured by the Squatty Potty company, but by another company called DickWicks (and no, I’m not touching that one). I’m pretty sure there is some copyright infringement taking place, as the DickWicks site uses the Squatty Potty logo. Bottom line (heh) is if you go to the Squatty Potty website hoping to find the Squatty Slim in the photo, you won’t.

    One more thing to mention — my partner heard about the Squatty Potty about six months ago and bought one without telling me. That would have been fine, but he bought the 9-inch-high version rather than the 7-inch-high version, and just getting your feet situated on that version and trying to sit down felt like I was in a circus act. It’s sitting in storage now and we will be getting the shorter version. Word to the wise.

    1. Hi Joe,

      I contacted the folks at Squatty Potty and was told that they do manufacture the Squatty Slim as pictured. The product on Dickwicks has purchased from their Australian distributor and is only available in Australia. The Squatty Slim will be released on SquattyPotty.com next week.

      They also had this note for you “I’m sorry your reader has a hard time with the 9” Squatty It definitely has a purpose for more limber, flexible and shorter people. You can tell the follower that we will gladly send him a 7” version for free if he pays shipping charges ($10).”

      I hope this clears things up. Grok on!

    2. We’ve had a Squatty Potty for almost a year now and love it. It’s much easier if you sit down first and then pull the Squatty Potty from beneath the toilet and put your feet on it. Doesn’t feel so risky that way. 🙂

  14. I’ve used primal calm and in addition to helping me feel more relaxed during the day, it benefitted my sleep most of all! I tracked my sleep patterns using a Jawbone Up band before and after, and after a few days of using primal calm, I was sleeping about an hour extra, and started to fall asleep in about 15 mins compared to an hour beforehand, made me happier and more productive, so thank you Mark! 🙂

  15. Got a squatty potty last year. No more straining. Liked it so much bought another for the other bathroom.
