Yeah I had about 3 bowel movements during my fast...all diarrhea. VERY dark in color. My diet is 70% raw fruits/veggies and 30% cooked, and hardly any processed foods. Americans typically consume nutrients through processed foods, supplements, and other aids that are unnatural and/or too potent. Fiber is a prime example. Too much of this is definitely dangerous in processed form, but foods naturally rich in fiber shouldn't be demonized along with the others. As a matter of fact I have better bowel movements after I eat a few apples to break my fast. It's amazing to see what your stool looks like after consuming only one type of food...definitely makes you WANT to eat healthier. Well, in 1 week I will begin my final 10 day fast. I can't wait!
