You eat a heavy meal, you drink a glass of wine, or maybe you even have a few beers – and then, suddenly, there’s a need to go #2. No matter how you eat or drink, the fact remains that your digestive system is working hard to break down food into nutrients for your body – and it does so in the most efficient and effective way possible. After going #2 (or even before), you feel relieved, excited, and a bit anxious about how your body will react and how much weight you’ll lose.
Here’s a short guide to how much weight you’ll lose after defecating.
How Much Weight Will You Lose After A Normal Poop?
Depending on how much you ate beforehand and how efficient your digestive system is, you may lose anywhere from a few pounds to half a pound – or even more. The truth is that there’s no fixed amount of weight you’ll lose, because it all depends on how large your poop is. If you have a large poop (which happens quite often, especially if you had one or two bottles of wine or five or six beers the night before), you may lose a solid pound or even more – and that’s a lot of weight to lose just from one poop (although the feeling of relief you get after relieving yourself is quite worth it).
On the other hand, if you had a small poop (which doesn’t seem like much but, in reality, it’s a lot), you may only lose around a half pound – or less. Smaller poopers seem to be caused by a buildup of toxins inside your body, which makes you feel worse rather than better. And here’s the catch: you won’t be able to tell how much weight you lost, because weight loss after defecating is all relative. So, although you may have lost a bit of weight, that may be because your body is healing itself, or it could be due to the fact that you’re just not that depressed any more. We’re not physiotherapists or dietitians, so take this into account before you go crazy thinking that you lost a lot of weight because your poop was big.
How Much Weight Will You Lose After An Overweight Poop?
If you’re already overweight (or obese) and you decide to go on a diet to lose some weight, you’ll likely lose less weight than you’d think – especially if you’re not used to regular exercise. Overweight people usually have quite a bit of weight to lose, and that’s because there’s more than one reason why they’re overweight. Sometimes, it’s due to a hereditary factor (parents, grandparents, and so on being overweight) and sometimes it’s just because they eat too much (or the wrong kinds of food).
Regardless of the reason, when an overweight or obese person decides to lose some weight, the first thing they usually do is restrict themselves from eating certain foods and increasing their exercise regimen. As a result, they lose around a quarter of a pound to a pound – less, in some cases. In order to lose this lesser amount of weight, they have to be extra careful about their diet and exercise habits, because they’re already at a high risk of weight gain (and they don’t want to put the weight back on, especially after losing so much already).
How Much Weight Will You Lose After An Underweight Poop?
If you’re underweight and your digestive system isn’t working properly, you may lose almost all the weight you gain – or even more. If your digestive system is under a lot of stress, it will not be able to process food properly and you’ll lose a pound (or more) for every day that you don’t eat. That’s because proper digestion is necessary for a healthy body weight, so if your digestive system is impeded in any way, you may find that you have a hard time gaining weight (or losing it, if you happen to be already at a low weight).
In addition to causing you to lose weight, an underweight poop (or constipation) can also cause serious health problems, so be careful about what goes in your digestive system (and, of course, avoid becoming underweight in the first place). If you think that you may be suffering from an underweight poop (or constipation), get in touch with a physician right away so that they can conduct an examination and determine the cause of your condition.
Is It Better To Do A Dry Or Wet Constipation Cleanse?
If you decide to do a poop cleanse, you may go either way – although most people seem to recommend a wet one. During a wet cleanse, you have the option of taking a laxative or an enema (which may be inserted a few hours to a day before the purge begins).
A laxative may be recommended for comfort during the cleanse, especially if you have to go frequently – although you may need to consult with a physician in order to determine the correct dosage for yourself. If you’re interested in trying a wet cleanse, be sure to talk to your doctor first so that they can advise you on the best way to proceed, especially at first.
What Is The Difference Between A Poop And A Gassy Poop?
A gassy poop (or explosive diarrhoea) is extremely uncomfortable and can even lead to injury. It could, in some instances, be caused by dietary changes – such as when you suddenly stop eating gluten or dairy products – although it can also be triggered by a viral or bacterial infection. Regardless of the cause, when a person experiences gassy poop, it usually indicates that something is wrong, and the individual will seek medical help as soon as possible.
A poop is when stool passes through the intestine and is excreted. Stools are usually formed during defecation and released continuously throughout the day – although there are exceptions to this (such as when you have diarrhea, caused by a bacterial or viral infection, or when you have an impacted stool, causing it to block the exit of stool from the body).
When Will You See The Light Once More?
After a few days (or even hours) of following a relatively healthy diet and taking a daily walk, you’ll begin to see the results of what you’ve done. If you’re not yet at your desired weight, you may have to continue dieting and exercising (although it’s certainly preferable to be at your desired weight, rather than trying to force it).
Once you reach your desired weight, it’s time to stop restricting yourself and begin having healthy amounts of food – particularly proteins and healthy fats – along with the occasional glass of wine or pint of beer. The above-mentioned drinks contain calories but also provide your body with nutrients that are necessary for maintaining a healthy weight. Avoid eating too much during this time and make sure to get at least eight hours of sleep each night.
If you’ve been exercising regularly, your body will be adjusting to the new lifestyle and you’ll likely begin to see changes in how you look and how you feel. If you begin to notice a difference in how you look and feel, even slight, you may need to adjust your diet or exercise regimen so that you continue to see the benefits.
