I have had bloating, constipation and many other issues for a while now but I have developed a new symptom recently. Orangey/red stool. Now the strange thing is it doesn't look like blood, it shouldn't be fast transit time as I typically go once every 6 days and I don't think it is a bile salt deficiency as I have taken super enzymes, etc before and they didn't help.
I'm 21, male and eat strict epi-paleo... help please!
EDIT: This is a recent occourance and I haven't added any new foods. I usually eat salmon, mixed veg(carrot, swede, turnip, onion), olive oil, goose fat, corned beef, other meats.

once every sixth day is pretty bad... optimal poop times are 1x/day... You should try to up your fiber intake so you go more often...
Sometimes if you eat too many carrots the pigment can be retained by your body and your stool. Try cutting them out and see how it goes.
Also have to echo that it is a good idea to see a doctor.
