Question:

I have constipation when I eat different fats

What is the relation between constipation and fats?

Christopher

Answer:

Dear Christopher,

Lack of certain kinds of fat in the diet may be a cause of constipation.

Many people who try to avoid all fats in their diet end up with a deficiency of essential, unsaturated fats, such as the omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids.

Constipation can occur as a result of improper intake of good fats.

Full-fat milk may be associated with constipation.

Saturated fat is one of the foods that may cause constipation.

Foods that are high in fat can cause constipation and low-fat diets cause constipation.

Eating foods rich in animal fats (dairy products, meats, and eggs) are the most common cause of constipation.
