How do I keep from having diarrhea while on a liquid diet?

I had laser gum surgery yesterday and need to be on a liquid diet for a week, and a mushy diet for 3 weeks following. How do I keep pooping normally? I was on a post-surgery liquid diet once before for a much shorter duration and spent way too much time on the toilet. Part of this may have been because of too much dairy, which I intend to avoid this time around. Would a fiber supplement help? (Please note that I do not have a personal M.D. to consult, and my dentist did not have any insight into this question.)
