Somewhere on this board, I read that when you pee, you can actually see the fat floating in the toilet. If you look closely, you will see tiny white specks. Last week I was looking for specks, and my boyfriend saw me and said "OMG are you OK??!!' He thought I was throwing up! I then explained what I was doing and he calmly said "OK, good" He's such an easy going guy, I LOVE him!

My friends who've used Alli

say that they have a lot of "oil" in the toilet when they poop. Sometimes, however, they don't even make it to the bathroom! But their doctors explained that was one of the side effects of Alli. It prevents absorption of a certain percentage of fat and that leaves your body as it went in: as fat. So maybe if those of you with "oil slicks" NOT using Alli need to check with a doctor to see if there's some reason your body is not absorbing the fat you eat. Just a thought!

Apparantly, it leaves my face, travels down to my belly before taking up semi-permanent residence on my behind, from whence it can only be removed by hours of spin classes, tortuous yoga and not-so-much-as-even-thinking about donuts.

You asked....

Thats undigested dietary fat if the oil slick is in your stools-it happens to those of us with WLS such as an RNY or people who are taking Alli. Its called steatorrhea. If your urine looks oily chances are it is protein.

Interesting...thanks for the info. I love that I learn something new on this site every day. I've never had that oil slick so I was wondering if I was the odd woman out here and doing something wrong. Glad to see I am a-ok.
Thanks!

You don't expell fat like that.. Your body was made with X amount of fat cells, whether you lose weight or gain it, you still have the same amount of fat cells. When you lose weight you are actually "deflating the cells" Which contain basically liquid. You burn it, you exhale it, you potty it out...

I am at work and all the guys are wondering what I am giggling about. Of course, they are LOVING the poop stories. They're guys....anything to do with farts or poop they are there!!!

As for the white floaty things in your urine, it's protein. I asked my doctor about it the last time I had a test. I held the cup up and it was like a yellow world of Sea Monkeys!!!

Um... back to the original question... When you don't eat carbohydrate in enough quantity to supply the body's minimum requirements, the liver takes over with a process calls "gluconeogenesis" which roughly translates "making new glucose." The glucose is created from amino acids from the protein you eat - or from your muscle tissue if you fail to eat protein. And from fat - mostly from the body, but also it can come from dietary fat.

Once the body mobilizes stored fat, the liver takes what it needs to make glucose, and the "leftovers" include ketones, or ketone bodies, that can be used for energy by your muscles and brain. Ketones you don't need for energy will leave in your breath, sweat, urine, and yes, your poop.

Undigested fat in your potty means that your body is having trouble emulsifying and absorbing fats. Fat isn't supposed to be there.
