Pooping on the carnivore diet. Oh yes. It is a marvel, the blessed doo doo. Allow me to explain. When our body transitions from one diet to another, the result in the pooping realm, is either constipation or diarrhea. I recently read Joe Rogan‘s account of his carnivore adventure. He described diarrhea in a fashion that I shall forever use from this day forward. Diarrhea, Joe Rogan explained, was a trust issue with his asshole. He said “I trust my butt hole about as much as I trust a shifty neighbor with a heavy Russian accent that asks a lot of personal questions”.
Pooping the Perfect Poo
Let’s hope you trust your butt hole a little more than Joe. Maybe you are confused about what your poo should look like on a carnivore diet. My cat, and fellow carnivore, may offer some insight into what you should see before the ceremonial flush.
You see, my cat eats raw food only. She poops every other day and nice little dainty turds. This is because her body uses all the nutrients from her diet. For humans, the same holds true for those on the carnivore diet. Except for the little dainty turd part.
Because meat is so nutrient-dense, our body absorbs much of the protein, vitamins, and minerals, leaving little to waste. Hence, less pooping. And, long, soft and fully formed is what you want to see in that porcelain commode.
If you want to check out what plops into the toilet, the Bristol Stool Chart is a great reference for examining the size and shape of your poo. A good poo is either Type 3 or Type 4 on the chart. If you are not in those ranges, you may have some gut issues.
What Your Poo is Telling You
Pooping on the carnivore diet may have you looking into the toilet more than ever before. It’s okay to be curious – the shape, stench and colour of that excellent crepe can be an indication that you’re ailing from more than you think.
You can gauge not only your gut health, but your overall health as well. Changes in your poop can be a more serious indication of something else going on.
Additionally, there should be consistency to your routine (every other day is fine) and absolutely no pain. As a matter of fact, there should be a great satisfaction to that dump and no need for reading material.
Are you like Joe? Are you finding that you can’t trust your farts? Don’t fret my friends, if you are full carnivore and find that you can’t trust your farts, it might be time to cut back a little on the salt and possibly the fat. If that doesn’t work, digestive enzymes and HCL might be of some help too. For my fellow foxy lady and co-host of the website, it took her a whole 45 days for her body to adjust.
Short bouts of constipation are normal. And treatable. A great remedy (don’t reach for those laxatives) is to consume more salt (we recommend Redmond Real Salt). Wait, what? I thought salt absorbed water and made you bloated. Total misconception. Kinda. Yes, salt does make you retain water however this will assist in getting the hydration in your colon for elimination purposes. Also, adding a Vitamin C supplement could help this backup.
Coffee and Pooping
Notice anything differently if you try to eliminate caffeine? That’s because caffeine works as a laxative. Not from the caffeine itself but from the result of the caffeine in our colon. The caffeine increases colon contractions. Thus, coffee = nice pooping. But I digress…
