High-protein diet linked to constipation?

Just wondering...
I heard that when you ingest too much protein, you can get constipated. Weird.

Is this true? If so, whats a low-calorie way to up the fiber intake? I take fiber tablets but they are 35 cals per serving and the rec. serving amt. per day is 5 times. (Not cool)

A high-protein diet will give you constipation if you are not eating enough fiber. Along with the protein add high fiber foods such as cabbage, broccoli, and other green leaft veggies. Also find a low sugar high fiber cereal and or bread that is allowed on your diet.

Focus on real foods when it comes to fiber. You get lots more nutrients and costs a lot less.

10:04 has is right, you need some fiber or you will be "bound-up." I think the hard thing about high protein diets can be tricky to tolerate long term. Just make sure you get SOME kind of carb i.e. carrots because re-gaining the weight a lot of the time is attributed to "over-carbing" your body after you've been denying it.

Some grains like couscous and veggies like avocado are relatively high in fiber and protein.

The main reason for internal hemorrhoids is constipation or if there is constant stress on the rectal area. It can lead to swollen veins in the rectum and if the condition isn’t attended to at the right time it can lead to the swollen veins protruding out of the anus and cause severe pain.
