Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.

There can be few possible reasons for your sporadic single episodes of diarrhea.

1. You might be under some sort of stress to trigger that bout of loose stools.
2. Your gut is sensitive to fatty or spicy foods and that can cause bowel irritation.
3. There might be little contamination in your food/ fluid intake and your immunity might be good enough to prevent disease manifestation.

I hope this helps.
Do write back in case of doubts.
