Hello, : Hello, bile is green. When foods are properly processed in the large intestine the green is transformed to brown. However, if you have liquid stool, it is transitting too quickly through the large intestine for this to occur and water is not be reabsorbed in the large intestine. When the stool transit time is normal, water is reabsorbed with a resulting firmer stool. You could have a mild gastroenteristis. Green vegetables can also lead to green coloration of stool. If you are taking in alot more fiber than normal, this could also be a cause. Hopefully this will pass quickly. You can drink clear liquids (not dark liquids like coffee, tea or soda ) for 12 hours to decrease the stress on your GI tract and then eat bland foods like rice, bannana, applesauce and toast for a day to see if that helps. Take care. Congratulations on the healthy lifestyle. ...Read more

I : I would call your doctor. The green stools may not be such a big deal because that can occur when feces transits too quickly through the colon. It prevents bile from be adequately metabolised and thus the feces do not from green to their characteristic brown colored. This is usually wet or liquid. However, the yellow stools could be from an absence of bile salts (liver, gallbladder or common bile duct). I would let you doctor know, as it is likely that he or she might want to see you sooner. ...Read more

Was it heavy?: Heavy drinking of anything can result in diarrhea, because of direct toxic effects of alcohol on the gut, as well as damaging the pancreas (which usually results in pain as well). Dairy products of any kind are not good if you have diarrhea. Clear liquids (water, juices like apple or grape), consomme soup (no noodles), jello etc. Is best until diarrhea clears. Pepto bismol and Imodium (loperamide) may help. ...Read more

However, be concerned since blood clots may also appear as red blobs. Bleeding in such a case can be without warning, brisk, & originate anywhere in the gut (from esophagus, stomach, to rectum.
