OK I'm going to ask you brilliant people a "poop question"! Has anyone else on this diet had the experience of having their BMs smell like burning plastic? Brief history- I am a 53 year old female, very healthy except for some arthritis, which has improved immensely from being on this diet. Been Paleo about a year and a half. I used to have a tendency to constipation so about a year ago I did 3 herbal colon cleansings, about 2 months apart, and since then have had easy regular BMs morning and night. Every month or two I will have a day when I feel unusually tired and sluggish, followed by one of these peculiar BMs- soft, very hot (I 'm sorry for the gross detail) and smelling weird. There seems to be no correlation to foods I've eaten. Afterwards I feel very energized, and my joints are better. Could this be some bacterial or pathogen die-off? dissolving of old biofilm/toxins from my gut? Apparently it's a good thing, I would just like to know what.
