Wierd question about health and poop.

I once heard you can tell if you are eating properly by the fact that your poop either floats or sinks.

I can't recall which means what.... as in if it floats it's healthy or if it floats it's unhealthy.

Does anyone else know or know if this is true?

  • floating usually means its full of fat. Could also mean its not compacted,like when you eat alot of veggie matter.
    So in other words,unless you're taking a sample and analyzing it,you can't tell!
