Thanks for writing your query.

Explosive diarrhea is seen commonly on excessive intake of fibres.
I would advise that you should be moderate in eating fibre rich foods.

I would also suggest that you should get your stool examined for any infection.

Eat light meals prepared under hygienic conditions.
Also take care of your hydration.

I hope this is helpful to you.
