Flat stools can be due to the fact that you have too much spams in your colon. I have them often and suffer from both anxiety and IBS.
When you are anxious, you might have a faster transit time and so the stool appear a bit "brighter".

Light brown does not equal discolored; that's totally normal :)

I have the same problems with my bowel movements they are never the same and always different colors and when I am anxious I have to do a sprint to the bathroom or if I am in a store which is humiliating but can not help it..
if I eat certain cereals that have a lot of color I can have bowel movements that are green it is so nasty sorry tmi but I think its okay though I guess it is the bodies way of getting rid of that food coloring and other junk in those bad for you cereals.
My doctor says eat right and drink lots of water and exercise but so far I haven't done those things except drink lots of water.
