This is called postprandial diarrhea. There are many causes, the commonest being IBS.

You can take imodium if its too bothersome. For cramps you can take mebeverine available OTC. You need to take smaller frequent meals rather then large ones. Look for food commonly associated with postprandial diarrhea, such as fatty foods, fiber, and dairy, avoid these.

Dietary advice regarding IBS should be followed too. Sharing a link for this as follows;

Other possible causes like celiac disease ,specfic food allergies and lactose intolerance ( if dairy products associated)should also be ruled out .

hope your query is answered.

Let me know if you have any more queries
