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.
