In brief: Variable

This depends upon what you eat mostly.
The color will varying from dark in a high red meat diet to sandy color for a vegetarian diet. The stool should be solid in texture, but not so hard it is difficult to eliminate. The texture is very loose to runny if you have irritating material in your colon and will be black if there is bleeding.
