If she has a clean bill of health from the vet, it certainly could be that her food doesn't agree with her. Why are you feeding puppy food for extra large dogs? You could try a gradual switch to something else, see if she does better on that. Canned pumpkin also works very well for clearing up a bout of diarrhea.
The Deter will work for the coprophagia, but that gets expensive over time. Your best bet is to pick it up right away and not let her have access to it.

when is the last time you took her to the vet?

2 weeks is a long time to be diarrhea-ing. they could at least give you something to maybe stop the soft poo.

I would take her back to the vet (I'm assuming you weren't there yesterday). 2 weeks is too long to have diarrhea. Did the vet check for giardia (sp)?

If she has really bad diarrhea she is in danger of becoming dehydrated, you will need to make sure she is getting enough water, and possibly get her some electrolyte solution.

When my dogs get the runs (more than one poop like 2 or 3 consecutive poos) I give them a very bland meal of rice, or rice and boneless skinless boiled chicken (or cottage cheese) for a day sometimes two depending on the dog. That is very gentle on their tummy and usually clears up the runs. However if you think it is the food that could be causing the problem you will need to deal with that.

she was at the vet recently, mabey 2 or three days ago. they checked for everything and said she was fine. the vet gave me some pills for her so the diarrhea would stop, but it didnt work. last night i gave her some plain macaroni, (i dont know how to make rice without a rice cooker) im gonna see what her stool looks like after that.
