Does a regular bowel movement (same time daily, with a firmish consistency), indicate an healthy gut?

I suppose it all has to do with what goes in your mouth. I just wanted someone to confirm, or to tell me what else to look for.

Thanks

No odor.

Stinky poop that you need spray for is bad.

It should slide right out.

Since we are on the subject. Should it float or sink? I can't remember which is healthy.

Hi geminisue,

I have had issues in this department for some time and was informed by a TCM (traditional chinese medicine) practitioner that stools that do not sink are a sign of malabsorption  

On another thread someone mentioned that if initially floats then sinks it is OK

Funny I thought the opposite was true!  The idea is that if your #2 floats, you aren't producing enough bile to break down the fat (which floats).  Maybe we're wrong

I also heard that floaters can be common for people with celiac disease who often don't digest fats properly (when they are eating a diet with gluten). But before that, I had heard they are good!

Eric I had heard the same as you that fat floats. I have been so confused about this because I have heard it different ways. Anyone with concrete info. Thanks.

Thanks everyone for the input. No floaters around here. Good to know I'm feeding my gut the right stuff.
