What not too eat when you’re constipated

I’m sure you’ve read that if you’re constipated you should eat foods with fiber or leafy green vegetables. Well you don’t really run into articles that talk about what you shouldn’t eat if you are constipated.Let’s start off with the most basic, sweets. Don’t eat candy, for one they’re empty calories and don’t add bulk to your colon.

Red meats often can increase the likelihood of constipation because it doesn’t poses any fiber, if anything it just sits in your colon. Another thing you can do is make sure that you drink plenty of water. When your stool is rich in water, it helps to lubricate your colon, making passing easier.
