What Foods Cause Constipation?
• About this issue,what foods cause constipation, we can say in a first place that it is going to be the food with deficiency of fiber,and because we know that fiber is only found in the articles from plant sources then the conclusion is that every animal food would be a good reason for constipation.
Most of the people are very surprised that food of animal origin contains no fiber. Because meat, fish, eggs and dairy products are for more than 30 percent of energy derived from food and the rest comes from sugar and other refined foods (which are the second group of food with deficiency of fiber and subsequently reason for constipation), it is no wonder that people here consume only one-third of the recommended amount of fiber.
Cheese, eggs, yogurt, fish, all kinds of meat, juice, white bread, all confectionery and bakery products, canned foods in powder, spices, ice cream and desserts are all foods that cause constipation!
