Do you poop everyday?

This may sound awkward a question but its also a matter of health. Some people are blessed with good metabolism that they get to flush out the waste of their body everyday. Some are not which are called constipated people. I have heard that not being able to get the waste out of your body everyday is one cause of colon cancer. So everyday, I make it a point to poop or take actions like taking tea in order for me to take out the waste everyday. So do you flush out the waste of your body everyday?

Taking a poop every day is good for your health. Having that waste in your body can cause all sorts of problems not just colon cancer. A person should be regular and if a person eats lots of fiber found in fruits, vegetable and grains along with plenty of water, they won't get constipated. It take about 12 hours to eliminate vegetables from your body but it can take up to 3 days to eliminate a steak. It's not good to have meat setting in your body. This almost puts me off eating meat.

Thanks deebomb. Thanks for the info on how long we digest our poop. Yes, meat is harder to digest thats why its longer to get it out of our system.

fortunately for me, my body has this automatic habit of pooping every morning when I wake up and ready for work. For those who are constipated, there are many natural remedies out there in which you can take and help you to remove those toxin out of your body. Or, you can eat fruits regularly.

Thanks cooldude. Well you are one of those blessed indeed. Yes I sure do make sure myself to eat fibrous materials such as fruits and vegetables everyday. Thanks for the advise.

I have to poop everyday because I feel heavy, I mean my body is so dragging the entire day if I didn't poop in the morning. I usually go to the comfort room during in the morning after my morning coffee.

yes i do. sometimes several times a day. it is not only the frequency that matters but also the quality of it. it should be banana like in shape and should be floating. inspect this before you flush the toilet

I pretty much have a poop every day but there are some days I don't and then I feel so uncomfortable. I would much rather go every day and I do most of the time since I am watching my carbs. I find that eating too many carbs bums me up and then I don't go, so I limit the amount I eat. I also find if I eat too much fruit then it can bum me up too, so I stick to just one fruit a day.

yes I do, most of the time, too many times, as I have irritated bowel syndrome and I have loose bowels.

I go regularly every day. Sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. I always thought I was weird because most people do it once a day. I feel fine and I am healthy so I dont think there are any problems. I hope I'm not the only one that does it more than once!

I usually do, yes, in fact I do it a couple times a day! I don't know, when I sit down to go to the bathroom, I just get the feeling that there's more to be done, and just, well, as you put it, poop. Haha. I usually feel really full and my belly hurts a lot if I don't go, so no, I'd rather not hold it in.
