What is your poop telling you?
Importantly, when it comes to consistency, quickly quiz yourself with the Bristol Stool Chart and rate your poop. The color of your poop depends on a few factors: A) Diet and B) How much bile is in it.
A quick definition for you: Bile is a yellow-green fluid that helps digest fats. A healthy-looking poop, then, should reflect a mixture of all the colors of the food you consume and bile. Any form of brown color, or even green shades, is considered to be fine.
