Question about stool color

I was wondering if "dark brown" is the only normal color for a stool to be. My stools vary in color. Sometimes they are dark brown, lighter brown, lighter brown w/grey tint, and light brown w/orange tint. I don't have any bowel problems, just curious about what is considered normal range of color. Also, how much does your diet effect the color, I mainly eat fast foods. I am a 24 year old male. Thanks.

Re: Question about stool color

It involves several factor. Foods can change the color. Medication, stress and fatty type foods. Because the liver produces bile, sometimes you can excrete a large amount and even get a "greenish" colr,alcohol can also change the color. Hope this helps you.
