Dreams about poop is a reflection of freedom. If you felt relieved and satisfied after you poop, it means that you have freed yourself from whatever you think is keeping you tied. You could be doing a job you don’t love and after a deep and careful thinking, you finally decided to quit.
Dreaming about poop on the ground reflects emotions from the past that have “piled up” in you for quite a while. Generally, dreaming about feces on the floor symbolizes that you are ready to let go of some old “garbage.” You can ask yourself, what garbage from the past am I ready to let go of?

Apparently accidentally stepping in dog poo with your left foot means good luck, while soiling your right foot will cause misfortune and bad vibes.
Healthy Poop Should Sink in the Toilet
Floating stools are often an indication of high fat content, which can be a sign of malabsorption, a condition in which you can’t absorb enough fat and other nutrients from the food you’re ingesting, reports Mount Sinai.
White stool isn’t normal and should be evaluated promptly by a doctor. White or clay-like stool is caused by a lack of bile, which may indicate a serious underlying problem. Bile is a digestive fluid produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder.
If you have Clostridioides difficile (C. diff) infection (CDI), it can result in diarrhea that has an unusual odor that some might describe as sickeningly sweet. High risk factors for CDI include being over the age of 65, having recently been hospitalized, and having finished a course of antibiotics.

Here’s how the superstition goes: if you step in dog poop with your right foot, you’re doomed to live a life of despair, but if you step in it with your left foot, it will bring you good luck, albeit you’ll still have to clean that turd-covered shoe of yours.
Dogs: Dogs represent loyalty, protection and good fortune. Dogs are considered to enhance positivity and good fortune around you, besides giving out protective positive vibes. The Chinese often place a pair of dog statues, called Fu, at the entrance of their homes for protection and safety.
You can lose weight from pooping, but it’s very, very slight. “Most stool weighs about 100 grams or 0.25 pounds. This can vary based on a person’s size and bathroom frequency. That said, poop is made up of about 75% water, so going to the bathroom gives off a little bit of water weight,” says Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD.
The healthiest shape for poop is a long cylinder. When poop takes on other shapes, it may indicate something could be going on with your digestive system.
Well, the pungent smell of poop is due to something called skatole, which is an organic compound that is the primary odor of poop. That combined sulfur-containing compound called thiols, along with amines and carboxylic acids really gives your poop that smell that you can almost taste.
It’s broken up into seven categories based on a 2,000-person study published back in 1992, and it makes poop knowledge basic and easy to understand.- Type 1: Marbles.
Type 2: Caterpillar.
Type 3: Hot dog.
Type 4: Snake.
Type 5: Amoebas.
Type 6: Soft serve.
Type 7: Jackson Pollock.
Actually, yes, it can. “Stool can be a rainbow,” said Dr. Satish Rao, a gastroenterologist at Augusta University Digestive Health Center. “While brown is the predominant and normal color, stool can be green, pale, yellow/green, black, even red, and there are a wide range of reasons why.”
Black stool can be caused by blood in your gastrointestinal (digestive) tract. But it could also just mean you ate something red, maroon, or dark, like beets, blueberries, or black licorice. Dark beers and lagers can also make stool look black.
Malabsorption is also a common cause of foul-smelling stool. Malabsorption occurs when your body is unable to absorb the proper amount of nutrients from the food you eat. This generally occurs when there’s an infection or disease that prevents your intestines from absorbing nutrients from your food.
Changes in diet can affect the way your stool smells. For example, eating more spicy food or higher quantities of meat than you usually do will likely produce stronger smelling stools. Significant changes to your diet while traveling can also change the way your stool smells.
A food intolerance could be stirring up trouble.
If you find that certain foods cause foul-smelling gas or loose, smelly poop, you might have an underlying intolerance. “A common one is lactose, but people can also have fructose and other carbohydrate intolerances,” says Dr. Nazareth.
