Gree loose stool is from unabsorbed bile and water. There are drugs which can bind exscessive bile. You should speek with a doctor or nutritionist about the diet adjustment.

If your stool was formed before and changed lately, it may also be an infection (from food/water poisoning), like from giardia or salmonella.
