You can adjust what and how you eat to help manage fecal incontinence.

1. Keep a food diary and make a list of what you eat, how much you eat, and when you have FI. You may start to see a pattern involving certain foods and the incontinence. Hopefully you will be able to  identify the foods that seem to cause the Fecal Incontinence problems – try to cut back on them and see whether your condition improves.

Foods and drinks that typically cause diarrhoea, and so should probably be avoided, include :

Drinks and foods containing caffeine

Cured meat such as sausage, ham, or turkey

Spicy foods

Alcoholic beverages

Dairy products such as milk, cheese, or ice cream

Fruits such as apples, peaches, or pears

Fatty and greasy foods

Sweeteners, such as sorbitol, xylitol, mannitol, and fructose, which are found in diet drinks, sugarless gum and chocolate and  fruit juices.
