I want harder poop

Is there a pill or powder that has the opposite effect of a stool softener? I eat lots of fiber and I need something to negate its effects.

I'm on a diet that includes a lot of fiber. Fruits, veggies, oatmeal, etc. I feel great and I know the food I am eating is much healthier. The only problem is, I now have loose stools all the time. Is there a pill I can take to make make them into more of a hard....log? Squishy pooh requires too much cleanup and my buns are getting raw. Plus, I sometimes have trouble holding it in when I need to.
A pill or water-soluble powder would be great because there's no prep required and no extra calories. Any ideas?
