Hey Mel. According to the literature Poop stinks as a result of the products of bacterial action. Bacteria produce smelly, sulfur- or nitrogen-rich organic compounds such as indole, skatole, and mercaptans, and the inorganic gas hydrogen sulfide. These are the same compounds that give farts their odor. Although you are right in that it does depend on one's diet, the literature says otherwise

Of course it has an odor of feces, but its not supposed to be over powering or vile. Or linger in the bathroom. If it is, theres a problem. I had digestive issues like I said, fixed my diet & mine does not have an odor, if at times very little. Common sense, feces doesnt smell like roses. And my information is def supported by my Doctor.

Depends on what u eat and how long it's in ur body. Other factors r obvious hormones, age, lactose int. What ever... Here's a question.... Y is yr own pooh harder to smell than when u smell the pooh of others.

Devastation being that you are a vegetarian. Does your poop smell?

The smell of poop comes from indole and another substance. But certain foods
make it worse . My husbands will put you on your knees no matter what he eats. I don't think it's supposed to be odorless.it needs to have a smell so you will avoid it unless you're a dog.

I was vegetarian for a couple of years (no longer), and my poop didn't smell then. The smell definitely depends on what I eat. Sometimes it's nasty!

Poop is NOT supposed to smell bad, if it does there is a reason for it. Being your diet, digestive system, metabolism...etc. It can even indicate illness or infection. This is gross, but also the color...if it floats or sinks, & the texture (way it looks) or how it feels when it comes out. Not literally FEEL it, lol. But if its easy to go or not..etc. All these things can tell you A LOT about your health. Google it! I cant believe I even know all this, but I was having some digestive issues so I did a lot of research, hope this helps! Most likely its your diet. :)
