What the hell did I eat? Why does this happen?

  • Depends...what did you eat? Happens to me sometimes when I eat something with icing. If you can't figure out to pinpoint to something you ate and if it continues to happen, I'd call your doctor.

  • Many of things can cause your "poop" to be green. I would make a call to your dr though. My friend had this happen to her and she let it go and few months later she regretted the news the dr gave her. Think of everything you ate and sum it up and if you cannot figure out what you would of ate that would turn it colors, call your dr..

  • Did you eat or drink anything with blue, purple, or black coloring or dye in it? Those are the biggest cuprits. If I remember right from health class, it can also be an over-production of bile in your stomach? But I'd be inclined to guess something you ate or drank in the last couple/few days.

  • Too much iron can cause green stools. Many women who take prenatal vitamins can experience this. Or it coud be something you ate or drank that had too much dye in it. I know when I drink purple powerade my stools are usually green. Gross I know but it happens!
