Stool Questions and Answers

How often should I be pooping?

People are often confused about regularity. Follow the 3-3 rule: You should go no more than three times a day, and no less than once every three days. Ideally, you should poop something like type 3 or 4 on the chart, daily.

Should poop sink or float?

If your stool floats too much, that’s an indication of poor nutrient absorption. If it sinks too quickly, it’s a sign you may not be eating enough fiber. It should do a steady submarine dive into the toilet bowl, without a lot of splashes or noise.

How much time should I spend on the toilet?

You should be in, out and on your way. No time to surf the Internet. Tweet later. If you want a hard number, it’s actually a 3-3-3 rule: no more than three minutes.

What if I don’t want to look in the toilet bowl?

Everyone poops, so go ahead and look. It’s important and provides a clear indication of your health. But there is another way. You should only need to wipe once or twice for a clean finish.
