Is it normal to poop 6 times a day?
I eat very healthy...gave up all sodas and diet sodas over 6 months ago. I have always pooped 6 times a day since my teen years(when I started drinking a lot of sodas) but now since giving up the sodas it has gone from black diarrhea half the time to now very light brown colored logs(usually 2 or 3 each poop) which I think is healthy but still occurs 6 times a day. I am worried that this is not normal though and if I am not at my house were I get the Charmin Ultra Soft I can start to bleed from wiping so much(but my stool is never bloody). In the past when I was in the Army I could hold it to 1 or 2 poops(especially after eating the MREs) but I would often shit 6 to 8 logs at a time then and my stomach would start hurting because I needed to shit so bad.

Background info: I am late 30s, 6'2 240 lbs(former semi-pro football linebacker), but only 10% body fat and run or lift weights every day. Excellent health with no issues...havent had to see a doctor or even been real sick in years.

If you are finding blood on the toilet paper go to the doctor straight away , I know you think that there is no blood in your poo, however that is one of the key indicators for bowel cancer.
Dont be a fraidy cat , it is actually better to see a doctor for a diagnosis and then come back to us and we will tell you how to deal with it

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1400736


Really? How does a thyroid affect pooping? I remember the Army wanting to do tests on my thyroid on 2 occasions. First was when I went into basic training at 255 and graduated at 245. Everyone else was dropping weight left and right and my drill sgts. used to think I was hoarding food. I always made tape though and always passed all the runs, pushups, situps, with ease so it wasnt a big deal. The second was when they wanted me smaller for Air Assault school and when some of my buddies would tell me that if I was shot I would be too big for them to carry out. Fortunately I never got any major combat wounds where I had to be carried out but it did make me want to lose weight enough to where I quit lifting weights.

There is a huge variation on what is normal...judge the consistency etc of the stool rather than how often you move it. Read this site;

Re: Is it normal to poop 6 times a day?
Of what I know - Healthy is 2 to 3 times a day.

You are either tensed and this causes you to visit the bathroom often (I visit it often if I have an important meeting) or have irritable bowel syndrome which is not a disease so rest your mind. Or you have them both! :-) Exercise and relax as much as you can.

When you say 'I eat very healthy' what do you typically eat and drink? What did you eat and drink yesterday for example...?

Re: Is it normal to poop 6 times a day?
Six times a day seems excessive to me.

Pooping once each time you eat is the general rule for a healthy colon.*

You said they are light brown...Do they float or sink?

*There are people who poop only once a day or only every two or three days. Those people don't realize they have a problem, but they do.

I'm not a doctor but based on your statements about your eating habits and weight loss I'd be will to bet you have a developing thyroid problem. It causes frequent bowel movements due to acelerated metabolism. Hyperactive thyroidism usually effects primarily women but men are also effected but usually the problem doesn't become chronic until latter in life for men. If left untreated IT CAN KILL YOU! Sytmptoms of "thyroid storm" are buldging eyes, jetters and or nervous tremors, goiter (expanded tyroid size at base of neck ( only a doctor, endocronologist, should make this diagnosis and examination). Your family doctor will send your blood samples to a lab to check for excessive thyroid hormones in your blood. If this is indeed the case your family doctor will recommend a qualified endocronoligist. This is IMPORTANT because if this is a more dangerous form of thyroid disease ie "Graves Disease" action should be taken at once!

Your metabolism is too high. That's why you need to get your thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels checked.

6 bowel movements a day is far too much. You only need to do one, as long as it's a good one.

My doctor told me that you don't really have a problem unless you can't go when you want to and it starts to get uncomfortable. You can in good health go several days without pooping as long as you are comfortable and don't feel like pooping. And when you finally do poo, it should come out easily.

I think as long as it is solid , it is better out than in, you have to be eating in order to make poop, I would worry if I was bound up.

Sounds like a symptom of Crohns disease, do you have any other symptoms?
Maybe your intestine doesn't function 100% and is not digesting the food properly?
Could be a nervous thing, could be Crohns, could be nothing at all.
If you feel well and healthy, have lots of energy etc.... I wouldn't worry too much about it.
AT least no-one can say you're full of shit... although I noticed someone already did.
HE IS NOT FULL OF SHIT OK ?
