    Have you eaten anything different. Is your stool loose. Normally light stoll means it has not stayed in your system very long. All stool is initially green and changes colour as it absorbs various things

    I used to stress about stool colour but in general it is not a particular indicator of very much

      the internet can be a blessing or a curse.  Food poisoning can last  several days  maybe what you eat upset you, eat bland food drink lots of water and then like pippa 58442 says see your doctor if nothing resolves.

    Monitor your diet first to see if that is the cause.  If it lasts longer than a week, see your doctor.
