Eating and drinking,just getting up and moving around activates peristalsis(contractions in the colon) Be grateful that you can move your bowels so easily unless it's diarrhea, of course. Are your bowel movements after the first one loose and watery and do you feel a sense of urgency to get to the toilet right away ? The only suggestion I have is to sit on the toilet 5 minutes more after you feel the first bowel movement is finished. Sometimes we're in such a hurry to get on with our day that we don't always give ourselves enough time to allow our bowels to completely empty out. slow deep breathing helps us to relax all of our muscles which makes stool to pass much easier through the anus.
I suffer from chronic constipation and would give my eye tooth to be able to have a bowel movement without so much thought and effort on my part. I have to make sure I eat enough fiber and drink enough water,Take Citrucel twice a day and sit on the toilet for 30 minutes each day to have a bowel movement. If I don't do this everyday then I can't go the second day without a lot of pain trying to pass large very hard dry stools. So be grateful you don't have to deal with this all the time.
