Not unusual : Bowel movements just after eating are fairly common. If it happens excessively it can be a sign of irritable bowel syndrome. Sometimes this symptom responds to a simple measure of adding more fiber to the diet. In fact taking taking a fiber supplement such as Metamucil once a day often solves the problem. When you do, drink more fluids also. Food particles in the stool are not abnormal. Good luck.
