Bowel issues with black and green loose stool. Is soda helpful in this ?

I have been having bowel issues. Sometimes it is blackish and tar like but 90% of the time I have soft stool. If I eat say a steak, corn, green beans within a few hours or by the next morning all of that is coming out. I know that it is normal for the bowel to take 3 days for it to break down you bowl. This has been going on for about a year and is getting worse. I also really do not have any control to very little control on trying to hold it back to make it to the potty because it comes out with force like diarrah. I always feel very gassy. About two months ago I quit drinking soda which I was drinking about a 2lt. a day. I now drink water, juices, and flavor packet that you add to your water. At 1st when I stopped soda it got better now it seems to be getting worse. If you happen to know anything that could help please let me know.

As you pass blackish stool it means that there is leaking some blood from your intestine or stomach .
as you pass your motion semi liquid and not able to control you might have some infection in G I Tract.
Go for stool test,it may reveal warm infestation like thread warm,pin warm,round warm etc
As you are non veg there is possibility of having tap warm.
It will also reveal any dysentry germs.
Most important is black color stool i.e.malina, passing blood is present,if present find out the source.
After the report we may conclude and treatment can be done.
Take more water,curd,butter milk etc
ok and bye.
