if i eat well, i have very sticky, hard to clean poop. most of the time i need to take a shower after and clean the toilet when i'm done.

if i eat like $h1t, the poop just comes right out, no big clean up, no need to clean the toilet.

i drink 6 quarts of water a day(based on my size).
i eat balanced meals with plenty of protein, starch and veggies.
my snacks are healthy. usually raw veggies with hummus or peanut butter.

Just to be clear, you're putting all those legumes in the "eat well" category?

Legumes could contribute, but I think it's a combination of high fat content, raw vegetables and soluble fibre. Any time you change your diet, it will have an impact in your stools. The best bet it to make changes to your diet gradually. Try increasing gradually the amount of insoluble fibre (oats, brown rice, wholegrains, etc.) Fermented foods and probiotics will likely help as well.

This could be a symptom of IBS or colon cancer so if it persists, you may want to talk to your doctor.

Legumes, high in soluble fibre and fat. They'e not bad, but too much can cause your symptoms.

The balance matters. It seems you have too much soluble. Probably too much too fast. Just tweak it a little.

Papaya contain pectin, a soluble fibre. If soluble fibre was causeing your problem, papaya would likely make it worse. People with laytex alergies should avoid papaya.

In general it a healthy food but might not fix this problem in the short term. It's good to prevent diarhhea though.

Is there a magical ratio of fiber that is optimum? I know its probably silly to even ask such a question but like 1:1 or something. Lately I've had the same prob as shawn.

Supplements/extracts aside I don't think it's possible to eat too much high-fiber paleo food. When I went paleo and started eating a pound of broccoli every night there was definitely a transition period of a few days though where things were a bit rumbly at times.
