Normal stool: Fasting during Ramzan makes most Muslims consume foods which is not part if their daily staple. With many such foods, rich in calories, sugars etc, the BMs don't look the same. As long as your output is regular, albeit somewhat dis colored, there shouldn't be any reason for alarm. Ramzan Mubarak
