Get insoluble and soluble fiber
It is important to consume both types of fiber, which each help your digestive system in different ways. Insoluble fiber, also known as roughage, cant be digested by the body and therefore helps add bulk to the stools, says Adams. Soluble fiber draws in water and can help prevent stools that are too watery. Good sources of insoluble fiber include wheat bran, vegetables, and whole grains; get soluble fiber from oat bran, nuts, seeds, and legumes.
