    Too much iron?

    So I started eating black beans last week. Im broke as hell right now and so I have been basically eating multiple meals of 1 cup black beans, 1 cup rice, 4 oz of cooked chicken.

    Im surprised at how god damned good it tastes and i dont even need much seasoning other than beef bullion for the rice.


    Only issue is I am noticing greenish grey stools. I saw something mentioned that it could be that I am eating alot of iron (which...i guess 4 cups of black beans a day is a lot of iron).

    Is this dangerous? I mean...i feel good, and I noticed a pretty quick change in my physique (less bloating). But then again my grandfather felt good up until he woke up one day and learned he had stage 4 cancer so i could be pretty fucked up I guess.

    You're probably fine. When I make dietary changes my stool tends to get a little greenish for a bit and then goes back to normal. Dehydration also tends to give me green stools for some reason, and they're usually a precursor to a painful intestinal blockage for me. Not sure if that's specific to me or not.

    That's the 2 cents I have. Mine had never really had any correlation to iron though
