Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredIf you have soft stool, try my B&B oatmeal to harden it. Combine a half-cup of blackberries, 1 banana, and 1 cup cooked steel-cut oatmeal. Blackberries contain natural chemicals that reduce intestinal inflammation, while the banana contains pectin, which can soak up excess water and firm your stool. The steel-cut oatmeal’s fiber will also soak up excess water and is gentle on your stomach.
