Slide 1: Ice cream. The high sugar and dairy content can slow down digestion. Try a dairy-free alternative or limit your intake.


Slide 2: BBQ meats. Processed meats like hot dogs and sausages can be difficult to digest. Opt for leaner cuts of meat or try grilling veggies instead.


Slide 3: Fried foods. The high fat content in fried foods can cause constipation. Choose grilled or baked options instead.


Slide 4: Soda. The carbonation and high sugar content in soda can lead to bloating and constipation. Stick to water or unsweetened iced tea.


Slide 5: Chips and crackers. These snacks are often high in salt and low in fiber, which can contribute to constipation. Choose whole grain options instead.


Slide 6: Alcohol. Too much alcohol can dehydrate the body and slow down digestion. Limit your intake and stay hydrated with water.


Slide 7: Caffeine. While a cup of coffee can help with constipation, too much caffeine can have the opposite effect. Stick to one or two cups a day.


Slide 8: Processed snacks. Foods like cookies and candy are often low in fiber and high in sugar, which can lead to constipation. Choose whole fruits instead.


Slide 9: Spicy foods. Spices can irritate the digestive system and cause constipation. Opt for milder options or limit your intake.
