I grew up eating only chicken, fish, and turkey. Now I am eating a helpful serving of steak for the first time in my life, and while delicious, it leaves me constipated.
Is there a break-in period for red meat consumption causing constipation and how long does it last?
I really believe it's all about your carb intake. My total carbs are fairly low--I usually say "moderate"--but I eat at least one piece of fruit daily and a generous leafy salad.
I've had no problems at all with constipation despite my habit of eating generous portions of beef. Also, if you tolerate dairy at all yogurt and cream are "looseners" for me as well.
