Dear Friend
Welcome to Healthcare Magic

I read your concern and it seems that bile is cause of frequent loose stool .. Its good to use cholestyramine (Questran) as it reduces frequency in passing stool and also controls cholesterol as you are over weight.
I suggest you to continue Questran daily and can help to cure your problems.

Avoid fiber rich diet and milk as it increases loose stools..
Eat healthy food and avoid fatty foods for a month.

Hope this information is useful, please feel free to ask if you have any queries.
Regards
