OK, I've been on the Zone for 5 days now, and I've got a weird thing going on with my poop now. It has little white/light colored chunks in it.

Anyone else have this experience? Should I be concerned?

I had a dog that ate my crayons as a child. It made pooper-scooping a more colorful experience. Guess you had to be there....

Crayons works, I almost said worms....which isn't out of this world. It could be parasite eggs. A change in your eating could cause them to freak out. I'm not trying to be gross, but you started with the poop thing.

I'd analyze what it is you are eating. Just because you went Zone, doesn't necessarily mean you changed what you are eating, just what portions of what you are eating a different times.

Also are you taking any pills that contain a capsulated substance, even supplements?

So here are my guesses in order of probability and a little Google research:

Capsulated undigested medicine/supplements
Parts of food that remained undigested
Parts of parasites that broke off
Parasite eggs

Funny enough I came up with this discussion, that is not exactly unsafe, but it sure is gross as it is about little white balls in poop.:

Stop eating nuts and see what happens...

Or just switch to only nut butters for the same result...
