Unripe Bananas: unripe bananas contain more resistant starch, a compound that is harder for the body to digest

Alcohol: drinking alcohol in large amounts can increase the amount of fluids lost through your urine, causing dehydration. Poor hydration, either due to not drinking enough water or losing too much of it through urine, is often linked to an increased risk of constipation

Processed Grains: Processed grains and their products, such as white bread, white rice and white pasta, are less nutritious and may be more constipating than whole grains. That’s because the bran and germ parts of the grain are removed during processing. In particular, the bran contains fiber, a nutrient that adds bulk to stool and helps it move along.

Red Meat: First, it contains little fiber, which adds bulk to the stools and helps them move along. Second, red meat may also indirectly reduce a person’s total daily fiber intake by taking the place of higher-fiber options in the diet. Third, unlike poultry and fish, red meat generally contains higher amounts of fat, and high-fat foods take longer for the body to digest. In some cases, this may increase the likelihood of constipation even further
