Keep your bowel movements soft and prevent constipation by drinking at least eight glasses of fluid every day. Eat plenty of fresh fruit, raw vegetables, whole grain foods and beans, because these foods are high in fiber, which also helps to prevent long term constipation. Certain foods, such as white bread, meat and cheese, (fast foods) contribute to constipation so you should avoid them.
