Avoid Junk eating
Junk food like chips, burgers and other greasy food are reasons for constipation. Substitute fried items with other healthy foods. Carrots can be delicious and healthy substitute for chips when you crave for crunchy snack. Reduce the quantity of meat and replace it by fresh salad or tossed vegetables.

Exercise is essential for regular bowel movements. One of the key factors for constipation is inactivity or a lack of exercise. Exercise decreases the time it takes food to move through the large intestine, thus limiting the amount of water absorbed from the stool into your body.
