The previous diet is horrible and surprised that tortoise is not dead. He need grass hays and weeds along with dark leafy greens. I would start him on Oxbow Salad Style hay which is grass hays weed and flowers specifically formulated for tortoises health and well being. You can add some Butter nut squash, and some Canned Pumpkin, not pie filling to the diet. The pumpkin will aid with the loose water stools. I am hoping he passes what is left of the bread bag. Make sure he is getting plain calcium, since it sounds like that may have been neglected. Cuttle bones scattered around can also help with the calcium issue.
