Physical exercise, such as running or jogging plays a critical role in keeping bowel movements regular when done consistently few times a week. Hydration is next with a log to keep foods that are causing trouble most of the time when ingested.

You may take a fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. For the long term you may try to increase your intake of fiber foods. Consult this site for fiber foods. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/high-fiber-foods/art-20050948 Wish you good health!
