11 Foods That Cause Constipation

It is no secret that the largest contributor to constipation is poor diet, but which foods are really the trouble makers slowing down our digestion and causing us to feel bloated throughout the week. While there are a number of foods which can help with proper digestion and have your body feeling lighter and brighter, there are some foods which are better off avoided at least until you can start feeling good about yourself.

In addition to making some healthier lifestyle choices such as increasing exercise and mobility, reducing fat intake and increasing fiber, certain foods hold some hidden extras which could be contributing to or even causing the majority of those constipated feelings. For the record, a diet which is high in fibre and carbohydrates and lower in fat and sugar will most likely drastically improve not only your digestive health but also bring much more energy, having you feel full for longer and even psychologically happier day to day. While the foods on this list will only have you feeling sluggish, slow and depressed in addition to the bloated feeling of constipation.

If you are seeking a much healthier, happier life free from constipation, consider finding some alternatives for these foods or even cutting them out all together and you will start seeing results in no time.


While a cup of coffee in the morning can help loosen up the bowels and keep you regular, in some cases it can have the opposite effect. If you are failing to consume plenty of liquids throughout the day or even before you cup of coffee, stool can be deprived of moisture meaning it might be much harder, solid and difficult to break up. If you find that caffeine is starting to have the opposite effect to your regular movements, you might want to skip that morning coffee and opt for alternative such as decaf or find that morning energy kick elsewhere.
