Let's say you have committed to eating plenty of protein but find that you now have an issue with constipation. What do you do? I would suggest an increase in your fiber intake to balance out your protein intake.
If you wholeheartedly insist on sticking to a high protein bodybuilding diet then there are a number of recommended foods you can eat to deal with constipation.
The list includes fruits, vetegables, legumes, whole grains and flaxseed as solutions for constipation. The fruits you can eat to deal with constipation are apricots, figs, papaya, peaches, pears, pineapples and prunes. For vegetables and legumes, you can try the following beans: canella, garbanzo, kidney, navy and pinto. You can even try greens such as chard, kale and spinach. For vegetables, artichoke hearts, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, green beans, peas and squash are all suitable veggies that you can incorporate into your diet.
As for the whole grains, it is recommended that you eat high fiber cereals (at least 8 grams of fiber per serving), whole grain bread, brown rice, barley and millet.
And finally, the flaxseed. You may be asking, "Why on Earth do I need to eat flaxseed to deal with constipation?" Research indicates that flaxseed relieves constipation, bloating and abdominal pain. It also serves as a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. You can even put flaxseed in your cereal, yogurt, baked foods and smoothies if you so desire.
