| | Raw food and constipation??
I am on my 5th day of eating Raw and I am totally constipated!!! who would have thought that eating fruits and veggies would cause constipation...if anything I thought it would be the exact opposite. my daily foods include lots of fruit (banana's being the main one, grapefruit, apples, mandarin oranges, pears, mangos etc) and veggies (mixed greens (the same one's steve is eating), cucs, tomatos, carrots, celery, etc) I have been taking a couple teaspoons of flax seed oil, some sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, some walnuts. I make green smoothies and sometimes juice some veggies. Anyone have any idea why I would be constipated? or what I can do to unconstipate myself?
I'm getting a little discouraged with the 100% raw food diet due to the constipation and no increase in energy.
thanks for any advice.
