What Your Poop Is Trying To Tell You

Free Report: 5 Ways to Boost Your Immune System

There are 7 'TYPES' of poop and you should be paying attention because what your poop looks like can tell you a lot about what is going on in your body AND …

Particularly if you are feeling unwell, you might want to … lets just say … pay a bit more close attention …

Type 1: Separate hard lumps, like nuts (difficult to pass and can be black)

Type 2: Sausage-shaped, but lumpy

Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface (can be black)

Type 4: Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft (average stool)

Type 5: Soft blobs with clear cut edges

Type 6: Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool (diarrhea)

Type 7: Watery, no solid pieces, entirely liquid (diarrhea)

Types 1 and 2 indicate constipation,

Types 3 and 4 are considered ideal stools as they are easy to pass while not containing excess liquid

Type 5 indicating lack of dietary fiber

Type 6 and 7 indicate diarrhoea

What About Color? Yup, This Matters Too!


Poop is normally brown. The color is the result of what you eat and how much bile is in your stool.


Sometimes have a slightly greenish hue, or even be a more vivid green. Most of the time, green or greenish poop is normal.
Lots of green fibrous veggies like kale and spinach
Iron supplements
Food coloring


There may be times when your poop looks more yellow than brown.
This is normal for many people.

It’s common for babies, especially those who breastfeed.

But if you have yellow poop that looks greasy and smells very bad, it may have too much fat. That could be a sign your body isn’t digesting food properly.

White, Pale, or Clay-Colored Poop

Medicines for diarrhea like bismuth subsalicylate (Kaopectate, Pepto-Bismol) can sometimes cause pale or clay-colored poop.

A more serious cause is a lack of bile in your stool. (Remember, bile gives poop its brown color.)
Your body makes bile in the liver, stores it in the gallbladder, and releases it into your small intestine to help digest your food.

If there’s not enough of it to give your poop its typical brown color, it could be a sign of a problem along the way.

Black Poop

Babies’ poop is black for the first few days after they’re born.

Otherwise, it may be because you ate something very dark-colored or took a medicine or supplement that causes black poop.

But this color can be a sign of a more serious problem: bleeding in the upper part of your digestive tract.

Red or Reddish Poop

If you see red or reddish poop in the toilet, don’t be alarmed right away. First ask yourself if you’ve had red foods lately.

Beets, Gelatin dessert, Red drinks

If you don’t think your diet is the cause, the red you see may be blood.

And if it’s bright red, the blood likely comes from the lower part of your digestive tract. Common causes include:

Noncancerous tumors
Inflammation in the colon, called colitis
Growths called polyps in your colon
Diverticular disease
