Re: Chronic constipation

Have you examined your diet? I know that sounds easy, but I have found that I cannot tolerate certain foods. It sounds crazy, but I cannot eat spinach or oats without becoming very constipated. It took me quite awhile to figure out that they were causing me problems. For most people, these foods have the opposite effect. I like both of them and wish I could eat them, but even if I drink lots of water, they clog me up. I've tried it on numerous occassions and it always happens.

I recently accidently ate cereal that contained oats. I got constipated and when I read the box, I realize why. It might help to narrow down everything you eat to see if some food it causing you a problem.
