    I've never had it myself, but it could be that your body is getting rid of toxins and all other rubbish that was in your body maybe?

    Think it must have something to do with the iron content of the diet.
    I have heard about black ones and green ones!
    Be happy to be going!
    Take care.

    Yes, definitely normal !!
    Mine were either black or sometimes green due to the iron and vitamin and mineral content of the shakes !!
    You do know that everyone else will start checking theirs now, don't you ? LOL

    Actually you should examine your poo, its a very good indicator of intestinal health and gives a good idea of transit time.

    Changes in bowel motions are one of the first signs of bowel cancer.

    *hat off* :eek:
