  • Make sure you take a stool softener, otherwise it is not going to be enjoyable when it finally comes out. I always ate stuff that I new usually would give me an upset stomach, like ice cream, or spicy food.

  • Eat a lot of fiber, drink lots of water, you could try try eating a bunch of bananas -- they give my son diarrhea if he eats too much. Also use olive oil instead of vegetable oils or crisco.
