Right now all I am seeing is liquid. I expected this because Oxypowder liquifies everything. I guess I may never see any "ropes" due to Oxypowder 's liquifying properties. I'm on an intense cleanse right now, taking 10 each night. I "go" two or three times within the first hour after I get up and then it's hardly anything all day, and maybe an average "go" in the evening. I am not having any urges during the day to suddenly rush to the bathroom. I imagine when I start cutting back on the capsules and go on "maintenance" I will see more solids. But right now its just all liguid. Like I said, there wasn't any cramping after that first day, and things are moving through me so I am very happy with Oxypowder . Hope this helps.
