In brief: Don't

The goal is to have well formed regular comfortable bowel movements.
When people refer to bulky stool that usually referrs to formed stool that does not cause trauma as it passes the anal canel. If the stool is hard, difficult to pass would recommend increased fiber in diet or mild osmotic laxitive.
