There’s a secret weapon that the most dedicated health and fitness experts use to gauge whether their nutrition and habits (or their clients’ habits) are working. Drumroll…it’s poop health. That’s right, here’s what you can learn if you “turn around and look down”.
Here at PN, we have plenty of coaching clients who come to us feeling “meh.”
Workouts are a slog, meals leave them feeling undernourished or overfull, and their fat-loss and/or muscle building goals just…aren’t…happening.
Our coaches wait a few weeks to get to know them, and then pop the question:
“So…how’s your poo?”
See, your poop health can tell you a lot about how well (or not so well) your eating and lifestyle habits are working for you.
Great poo? Great life!
But “problem poo” could signal underlying health issues that result in feeling lousy or even trigger a downward spiral of ailments.
So check out this visual guide to identifying healthy vs. unhealthy poo. Learn 6 reasons it’s important to decipher your doo-doo. And discover ways you can make it better.
Download the infographic for your printer or tablet and stick it in your bathroom for quick reference. (Fitness pros: feel free to hand these to clients…or, at least, the ones you have a rapport with).
To remind yourself to turn around and look down, download a printable or tablet-friendly version of this infographic so it’s always handy.
And, if you’re a health and fitness coach, use this guide to help facilitate the potty talk with your clients.

Want more strategies for fine-tuning your nutrition?
Getting your fitness and nutrition routine to work for your goals can be more complex than you’d like. Here at Precision Nutrition, we work closely with our coaching clients to identify what’s holding them back and solve it effectively.
And in our Level 1 and Level 2 Certification programs, we give health and fitness professionals the knowledge and coaching skills they need to help their own clients in the same way — so they can have fulfilling, successful coaching careers themselves.
Coming Wednesday, April 5th, 2017
If you’re a health and fitness pro and would like to learn more about becoming an elite, world-class nutrition and lifestyle coach, check out our Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification program; it kicks off soon.
Important: Since we only take a limited number of students each time we offer the program, and it sells out every time, the best strategy is to add your name to our free presale list.
Getting on the list gives you the chance to sign up for the certification 24 hours before everyone else. Even better, you save big on the cost of the program.[Of course, if you’re already a student or graduate of the Level 1 Certification, check out our Level 2 Certification, an exclusive Master Class for elite trainers looking to perfect their nutrition knowledge and coaching techniques].
