Do a diet audit
A high-fat, low-fiber diet is a surefire way to clog your drains, and we love our bacon-wrapped tater tots! It turns out that there are certain foods that make you poop, and ones that back you up (you’re welcome), so take note of what’s going in you if nothing’s coming out. High-fiber foods are notorious for their poop-producing powers, but everyone reacts to dietary changes differently, so be careful not to make things worse.
Check your hydration level
Drink more water: always the answer, right? Well... it kind of is. With constipation, all the fiber in the world isn’t going to help if there’s no fluid to push everything along. If anything, you’ll just end up with stomach pain and brick-like stools, and studies show that increasing water intake can significantly enhance fiber’s effects. If happy dumps aren’t enough reason to drink more water, nothing is.
