Are You Dieting And Backed Up
Q. I find when I’m dieting for any more than a month, I become constipated. Why does this happen to me?
A. Constipation can become a problem for several reasons. A diet that is low in fat, low in fibre, high in dairy products, or restricted in fluids may cause constipation. Increasing your fluid consumption and fibre will help. Adding a bran cereal in the morning is recommended as well as additional fibrous vegetables. Another solution would be to drink adequate amounts of fluids. Adding psyllium husk to your morning cereal or a glass of water may also be beneficial. Products such as Dieter’s Tea will help to keep you regular.
