Honestly, now, have you ever weighed yourself before or after taking a dump? I mean, you must have at least thought of it, right? Who hasn’t?
And if you did, you must have noticed a difference in weight.
The same is for farting-believe it or not. So could pooping and farting really be the secret to weight loss, or is it all a taboo?
Now, let’s find out how much your poop weighs.
What they actually discovered, was that poop weighs between approximately 2.5oz and 1lb.
The fact that Westernized populations have the lowest stool weight didn’t come as a surprise. Thanks to the lack of fiber that comes with a fast-food died, their poop averaged between 3-4oz.
This wouldn’t make a difference in your skinny jeans.
How about farts? Now read carefully.
Gastroenterologists in England know that beans are a truly magical fruit. So, in order to determine a fart’s weight, they put 200g of baked beans in addition to the participants’ normal diet.
What is even more surprising, is their actual method of measuring. They used rectal catheters over the course of 24 hours. This raises serious concerns about the participants’ mental stability.
The researchers found out that the farts weighed between 16-50oz per day. And according to science: “Women and men expelled equivalent amounts”.
So, the real question is: can you lose more weight by increased farting and pooping?
