Three bowel movements today

Posted , 3 users are following.

Yesterday I had a breakfast bar and an apple for breakfast, a ham salad sandwich and a cereal bar for lunch, and a piece of salmon, some rice baked tomatoes for dinner, plus a piece of cake and some cream crackers and a ginger biscuit. Today I have been on the toilet three times, once in the morning, once in the afternoon and again in the evening. Each time it was sn enormous poo, not loose or difficult to pass. They were huge thick and long stools. I just wondered if this was excessive.

    To really evaluate this, I would need at least 3 days' food diary and  history. But if this is all you have to go with then relax, it's normal. Once in a while, your gut decides to clean house, so what normally takes 60 to 72 hours to pass instead comes out over 8 hours. Everything sounds normal so far. Likewise, it's normal for some people to go a day or two without a bm.
