I have posted previously about my IBS symptoms, i.e. http://paleohacks.com/questions/145157/really-stuck-on-how-to-hack-this-one-particular-ibs-symptom#axzz25QtLIlEj. It takes me a lot of effort to go, and I get a lot of cramping afterwards.
I'm wondering if my stool might be indicative of something I'm missing in my diet. It doesn't fit on the Bristol scale - the beginning of the poop is solid and hard, and the tail is soft, messy and doesn't finish neatly. So it starts as a 2 and ends as a 4 or 5. My stools look like tadpoles. What might this be telling me?

Too much plant fiber (cellulose) or incomplete digestion would be my best guess. Mine is often similar to yours (yay, poop sisters!).
