    Ideally, we should have a bowel movement two to three times a day. Movements should occur shortly after we have eaten a meal. There should be no straining. When your stool floats, you have been doing well. Your stool should not be runny like diarrhea or in clumps and lumps but loose and floating. It should smell like what you have ingested.
