In brief: Fluid and fiber ?

Foods high in fat tend to constipate you.
Foods high in fiber favor looser stools. Fruits vegetable, whole grains are excellent sources of fiber. Also, fiber only works if u are well hydrated. Drink plenty of non-caffinated, non-alcoholic fluids to keep stools soft. Fiber can also be added to a glass of water. If this does not work see a GI specialist, there may be another cause of your issu.

Also, daily walking 40-45 minutes, 4-5 times a week at least should help. If you have the time and resource, consistent yoga practice over time will also help.

In brief: More water

Try increasing the amount of water you are drinking.
Fruit juice and/or fruits can help as well. Adding some additional fiber to your diet can also help. More walking/exercise as well.
