Part I: It’s All About the Poop
We all poop–we’d be in real big trouble if we didn’t! Some of us analyze it on a daily basis, and others just want to know more about it. And then there are some who want the scoop, but don’t want anyone to know about it. Wherever you fall on the poop scale let’s be honest, the satisfaction of a good poop cannot be underestimated.
But what exactly constitutes a good poop?
I have been analyzing poop professionally for around 20 years, so I feel after looking at thousands of poops I am more than qualified to give my view on what healthy poop is and what it is not. I have seen plenty of both. And yes, by the way, I do look into the toilet every day. If something looks a little scary, I sometimes get a spoon and check it out. Now don’t raise your eyebrows at me, if poop were your business you’d be doing the same thing.

Not many, I’ll bet, but wouldn’t it be great if you did? Just like it would be great if you had a complete, effective bowel movement every time you went to the bathroom. Are you starting to see the connection now?
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve talked with women who have been constipated and then have a really good bowel movement, they tell me, “Wow! That was better than sex.” Well, I don’t know if they know how true this statement really is! Why wouldn’t sex—not to mention your sex drive—be related to how you poop? It all has to do with how you feel inside your body, and two things that can affect how you feel in a BIG way are sex and poop. ...Continue Reading Poop Scoop Part 2 >
