Foul smelling bowel movements can come from several different Causes. A change in diet or a predominance of a food that can cause a certain type of gas can be responsible. Also an infection in the bowel may cause foul-smelling flatus and bowel movements. Another possibility is fat malabsorption. That can cause foul-smelling stool. I Would suggest taking a very bland type diet with high fiber and bulk in your diet. You may also try probiotics such as activia which can change the bacteria in the colon and may be helpful in improving this problem. Also avoid gas producing foods such as beans and carbonated beverages.
