You should definitely see your doctor. If you want to poop so you lose weight, then no. Your bathroom scale might lower in the short term, but you haven't really lost any excess body fat, just water and, well, poop. ...Read more

Is foul smelling stool a good sign if one's trying to detox and lose weight?

Is foul smelling stool a good sign if one's trying to detox and lose weight?

What are you taking?: There's a very good chance that your "detox" is the problem. Any change in diet, alteration in gut flora, or purgative agents may change your stool pattern & odor. Please keep in mind that not everything bought in a health food store, or "natural" products (however well intentioned in taking), may agree with you or be entirely safe. Stop the product & resume a balanced diet--see doc if persists. ...Read more

Please not for that!: There is no meaningful or long-term weight loss with stool softeners--only temporary laxation of stool and maybe loss of some "water". A healthy and long-term approach to weight loss (and keeping the weight off once lost) is consistently making good food choices (avoid high-calorie density foods that are high in fat and processed sugars), minimize snacking, control portion size, and exercise. ...Read more
