Going anon on this one, because it is embarrassing. Poop question TMI adult content

When I have salad, cabbage, or corn on the cob, it does not digest and will come out in my poop looking like the original food.

Is this normal and why does it happen?

  • This sometimes happens to me with corn but not anything else, I would say it is somewhat normal, but I have no idea why it happens.

  • I always joke to my SO that when I poop corn it looks like it's still on the cob. That's because we can't digest certain things.

  • It occurred to me, maybe you are not fully chewing your food.
