Can Bananas Cause Constipation?

This is a question that often comes from people who maintain a heavy processed food diet, filled with high sugar content and not much fiber to absorb it. The high levels of sugar make the person very thirsty, as the body tries to flush out all those chemicals through urination. Drinking lots of water gives us “hiccups”, which causes more solid wastes in the colon to be drawn back up towards intestines (because of gravity).

If this continues for an extended period of time, there could be problems with constipation. But if you get rid of excess processed foods and consume nourishing whole plant-based foods instead, then this should not happen at all…
