The Bristol Stool Chart classifies the 7 types of Poop which identify any problems in your diet or lifestyle which affects your health.

The type you see in the toilet bowl is the result of your lifestyle, diet, fluid intake (both type and quantity) plus medications. Whilst we all differ slightly, the ‘perfect’ stools are Types 3 or 4 (soft and easy to pass).They should be formed properly as this means we’ve digested and absorbed the nutrients from our food.

It’s very important that we are are eliminating acids and toxins. You need at least one full Poop a day to avoid problems.

Some people have 2 to 3 which is fine as everyone is a little different. Be sure to check out our article on Irritable Bowel Syndrome too.

Bristol Stool Chart Interpretation

Types 1 and 2 on the Bristol Stool Chart above from Continence Org are indicative of constipation and types 5, 6 or 7 can indicate Diarrhoea. It’s important to seek out medical advice if you experience severe Diarrhoea. Children, babies and older people particularly should consult a medical professional if this occurs.

Being ‘regular’ is a way of describing normal bowel function and good bowel habits. It’s common for people to empty their bowel once a day, although it’s also normal to be more or less often.

Being regular really means that soft yet well-formed bowel motions are passed easily and that this happens anywhere from 1–3 times a day to 3 times a week.
