The unhealthy lifestyle that surrounds us is enough to give us an upset stomach and many gut-related illnesses. In order to cure them and feel relaxed, we need to make certain changes in our diet and lifestyle. 

Constipation is a common problem among adults, around 27% of adults in the world suffer from constipation, bloating, and gas issues. Constipation is defined as having fewer than three bowel movements in a week. The older you get and become less active, the higher the chances that you will experience constipation. Some foods are rich in fibre and can relieve chronic constipation, whereas there is a list of foods that can trigger it and make it worse.

We have made a list of foods that are not so tummy-friendly and can cause problems like constipation.

Without wasting time, let’s begin!

  • Grains that are processed 

White bread, white rice, and white pasta, for example, are lower in fibre and maybe more constipating than whole grains. This is due to the removal of the grain’s bran and germ during processing. The bran, in particular, includes fibre, a substance that adds weight to the stool and aids in its movement.

  • Eggs

They have a high protein content but a low fibre content. You are not required to remove them from the menu. Simply incorporate some high-fibre foods into the mix. Consider making an omelette with fresh spinach and tomatoes.

  • Alcohol

Just like coffee, alcohol can make it difficult for your body to retain water. This can cause problems with your bathroom visits until you rehydrate. If you’re going to drink a cocktail, keep a glass of water nearby to keep things moving.

  • Tea

This may surprise readers, but it is advisable not to drink tea when constipated. While herbal teas are unlikely to be harmful, tannins in generic, bagged black teas bind stools together. Tea frequently contains caffeine, and while a small amount might stimulate the digestive system, too much can dehydrate the body, having the opposite effect.

Now that we have talked about the worst foods for constipation, let’s have a look at some foods that can ease this problem. 

  1. Apples 
  2. Pears
  3. Figs
  4. Sweet Potato
  5. Chia Seeds

Apart from all these, drink plenty of water and other liquids that will help with your digestion. Consume more fibre-rich foods and green vegetables, which will significantly improve your constipation and related symptoms.
