stringy poop on paleo

so it seems like the more paleo i eat (red meat and raw vegetables in particular) the worse my stools are. now they are stringy, does this mean I need to eat less fat and more fiber? i eat a lot of greek yogurt. there's no itching or anything like that.

stringy to me suggests lots of insoluble fibre in your diet (cellulose) and not enough soluble fiber (from starchy foods). Increase your carrots, yams, beets, squash etc and see if that helps.

raw veggies? the less cooked veggies are the harder they are to digest... try over-cooking veggies for a while

I sense that you have yet to become one with the poop, so long as you adopt a judgmental attitude towards your poop you cannot achieve Poop Nirvana.

I think the answer is actually the opposite. If I ever feel constipated (and it has happened a couple of times over the last year, I up my fat and lower my fibrous veggies and lower my protein.

Pictures please...

...Jokes, don't.

I agree with Paleo_blazedras, cook your veg and see what happens, you can always raw it out slowly once you are content with your poo. It might take a couple of months for your poo to be super :)
