Soft stool or diarrhea is caused by eating certain foods or by having a bad diet. It is triggered by increased fat in the stool which causes steatorrhea. Basically the stool floats, or sticks to the sides of the bowl and may be difficult to flush. If this is the case, avoid dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt. Also avoid cold drinks, raw fruits and vegetables, spicy food and caffeine. Eat lots of bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. If this persists, seek medical attention.
