THREE TIMES A DAY TO THREE TIMES A WEEK

Don’t let any­one pooh-pooh your toi­let habits – when it comes to No 2, there’s no such thing as nor­mal. “We all have our own rate,” says Dr An­ton Em­manuel of the Bri­tish So­ci­ety of Gas­tro-En­terol­ogy. “In healthy in­di­vid­u­als, any­thing from three times a day to three times a week is nor­mal.” With poop, as with so much in life, con­sis­tency is king – as long as your trips to the toi­let are reg­u­lar for you, you can flush away any float­ing fears.
