To regulate your bowel movements, suggest eating more fiber foods and fresh fruit & vegetables. For whole grains, for example: oatmeal for breakfast, whole wheat breads, oatmeal cookies, bran muffins, whole-wheat pasta, and brown rice. All fruits except limit bananas and apples, they constipate and need to be limited if issues arise. Vegetables in any form, raw (salad) or cooked. You also need to increase your fluid intake with additional fiber. Fiber is great for increased bowel movements; however, it needs fluids to get through the colon. Benefiber is a powdered natural fiber supplement that can be added to your food to help with bowel movement. Hope this helped.
