I have recently turned C after many years of D. I can only think that quitting smoking has caused this change, but really i guess it could be anything.
I tried my trigger foods, the ones that always gave me D, such as milk, soya yoghurt, oily food and even laxatives and nothing helped me "go".
I found some relief in Chinese tea. I saw a brand that has vegetable sponge in it, and was said to be good for C.
I found it really helped and very quickly too.
It may not be suitable for everyone, naturally. My dad tried some to see what would happen to a "normal" person and it caused terrible D for him, whereas with me, i find it more gentle than any laxatives have been in the past and its not a "Oh my, i have to go NOW" thing either. I feel i have to go, and now would be a good idea but i dont have to run to the bathroom and there is no major discomfort when going.
I am not sure if i am allowed to name the tea here due to the rules of selling etc, tho i have read most chinese teas help this way, but i wanted to say that i really found help with this product and feel that i should mension it for anyone who has not tried.
Do read all ingridients if you choose to try it and i will be totally honest here, it gave me a terrible head ache due to the anti oxidants in the tea, but that was preferable to the pain in my tummy.
