Really Bad Smelling comes from
An imbalance of intestinal bacteria or eating too much animal protein, which can putrefy in your digestive tract.
While your digestive cells are absorbing sugars, starches, fats, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, waste products continue traveling down the line. In the colon, all the leftovers are combined, packed together, and partially dehydrated. What remains - our feces - consist of water, indigestible fiber, undigested food (such as corn and small seeds), sloughed-off dead cells, living and dead bacteria, intestinal secretions, and bile. (The worn-out red blood cells in bile give excrement its distinctive brown color.)
If all goes as it should, you'll end up with a healthy bowel movement. Although digestive idiosyncrasies, variations in intestinal bacteria, and other variables can produce different standards for a healthy stool, in general it should be brown to light brown; formed but not hard; cylindrical, not flattened; fairly bulky and full-bodied, not compacted; somewhat textured but not too messy; and very easy to pass. And it shouldn't smell - much. You're passing methane and bacterial, degraded foodstuffs, so there's always going to be an odor, but it shouldn't be a very strong, pungent odor.
There's no generally accepted clinical definition for frequent bowel movements. Bowel habits vary widely among healthy people. Population studies indicate that most people have more than three bowel movements a week. Generally speaking, however, normal is what's normal for you.
Frequency of bowel movements also varies for individuals over time. You could have one bowel movement a day for years, and then begin to have two or three for no obvious reason. If your bowel movements increase in frequency but not in any other way — no loose, watery stools and abdominal cramping (diarrhea) or bloody stool — the change is probably not a sign of illness.
I hope this helps. I can site the info if you wish. most this came from my personal nutritionist, and doctor, we had many interesting talks lol.

If you drink coffee, Try and use splenda with fiber, like clock work it keeps me regular. It's the only thing i use splenda for, and it's always worked. I try to keep to a natural fiber intake as much as possible so that it don't become chemically dependent, maybe im wrong.

Yeah, I knew there wasn't a caloric value, but the splenda with added fiber, for some reason when added to my coffee, its like clock work being on the can lolIf you drink coffee, Try and use splenda with fiber, like clock work it keeps me regular.

I think splenda acts somewhat like insoluble fiber. VERY little of splenda is actually digested by your body, the rest is passed through undigested, which is why it has no caloric value.

Splenda could also be like sorbitol, in that it draws water away from the body (reverse osmosis), acting as a diuretic. I have no information that splenda acts in such a way, but it's a possibility.

polyethylene glycol aka miralax.... people who have to use opiates for chronic pain often get constipation, and it is safe for long term use... it works by drawing more water into the colon

lol @ your comment.... while its true in a sense, some doctors know less than some people on this forum...
some doctors actually care, learned shi* in med school, and they have a degree to show they know what they are talking about.
but to be honest, i think i would put my trust in my doctors hands

then the doctor tells you that you need statins to lower your cholesterol. cholesterol is a body's natural defense and antioxidant, it is not the reason you have heart attacks. sure it may look as plaque in your arteries, but thats because its trying to keep them together after you destroyed them by eating vegetable oils and deep fried $hit. ignorant doctor took 1 class on nutrition and thinks that by lowering your natural cholesterol he will save your life. he tells you to eat less cholesterol even though there is ZERO scientific proof that dietary cholesterol affects blood cholesterol. in fact, the liver will just make more if you eat less eggs or whatever.
i came to a doctor once with a wicked sinus infection that i was trying to battle and pinkeye that developed because of it. i came primarily for the pinkeye meds- i wanted to just wait the sinus infection out, done it before without antibiotics. got the drops and she gave me amoxicillin for the sinus. highest dose available. i trusted her and took the pills. sinus infection was gone but so was all the good bacteria in my stomach, the antibiotics were so strong they killed it. this resulted in antibiotic caused colitis, cramps 20 $hits a day for 2 months and a 20 pound weight loss. i called and another doctor picked up:
"hey i think you gave me colitis with the amox"
"yeah probably, it happens all the time"
"you want to come in? we can give you another antibiotic to help colitis"
