My bowel stool is green I have not eaten any green vegetables. I have about 5 bowel movements a day

Normally, while the food is going through the large intestine, the stool tranforms from green to a brown color. However, if the stool transits too rapidly through the large intestine, liquids will not be adequately reabsorbed through the gut and there will not be adequate time for the stool to turn brown. Thus the stool will be liquid or moist and will remain green. P.S some supplements may also cause stool to turn green. Take care. ...Read more

Normally bile makes stool green at the start and a normal transit time lets the stool go from green to yellow to brown. Google green stools and see if any of the causes match with what you are doing.
