How often should you poop?

How many times/day?

Our bowel movements are like very special snowflakes: completely unique to each one of us. The average (healthy) person poops about once a day, but a truly healthy pooper can go up to 3 times daily. A very productive digestive system can go up to 4 times daily. Many corporations and health institutions would lead you to believe that pooping once every couple days is healthy. We don’t agree. If at any time you go 2-3 days and you have not had a deuce, you’re officially constipated. If you go more than three times a day and the consistency is more liquid then solid, you might have diarrhea or some other digestive issue.
