Hard stools can often indicate constipation. This can usually be remedied by taking an over the counter stool softener medication.

Hard stools are usually the result of a bad diet. You need to eat more fruits and vegetables if that's the case. Not drinking enough water can do the same.

You may have constipation. It probably means that you don't consume enough water and soluble fiber. Soluble fiber helps form bulk of soft stools. All fruits contain great amounts of soluble fiber. Eat lots of fruits, you will see a difference. Fruits also contain about 70 to 90 percent water.
