However, if you have sticky, malodorous, black stools that could be due to gastrointestinal bleeding (melena) however, since you have made significant changes to your diet with increased vegetables and water, this may be detoxifing your colon. The increase in fiber and water, can help to remove plaque in the colon. This can be accompanied by passing gas or feeling gas pressure. Bowel movements may be more frequent and softer. If this is the case, it doesn't mean that you are ill, it would be how detoxification of the gut is effecting you. Keep up your healthy lifestyle changes. ...Read more
