    Fibre: The fibre intake should be increased. High fibre foods like whole grain cereals, whole dals, green leafy vegetables and fruits should be consumed in increased amounts.

    Fats: Fatty foods are useful for some because of their lubricating effect and stimulating action on the mucous lining.

    Fluids: it is advised to drink plenty of fluids as it helps to soften the stools. An intake of 8-10 glasses of water or fluids in a day is a must. A glass of lukewarm water with lemon juice taken early in the morning also helps.
