Increasing Fiber Intake average person needs to consume between 20 and 35 g of fiber daily. Fiber, the part of a food that doesn’t get digested, plays an important role in your digestion. It helps to keep stool moving through your bowels. If you lack enough fiber in your diet, your stool can become stagnate, dry and hard. Increasing your fiber intake will help promote soft and bulky stool. Foods that are fiber-rich include beans, fruits, whole grains, beans and vegetables. Increase Liquids An inadequate amount of liquid in your diet can cause your stool to become dry and impacted. Drink plenty of water, fruit juice, herbal tea and soup broth. Avoid certain beverages that contain alcohol or caffeine because these substances can dehydrate your body, leaving it depleted of water and salts. Lifestyle Adjustments Regular physical activity can stimulate your digestive system, promoting more frequent bowel movements. Don’t ignore the urge to have a bowel movement and take your time. Ignoring or holding a bowel movement can promote further constipation. Don’t force or push too hard or you may develop complications, such as hemorrhoids...consult doctors if symptoms persists long
