Chances are you’ve experienced constipation at one point or another. If the problem is more than occasional or includes severe pain or bleeding, it’s important to check it with your doctor, as these symptoms can be a sign of a more serious digestive disorder. But in most cases, constipation is just a sign that your diet needs more fibre and likely fluid as well.
Watermelon doesn’t have a lot of fibre, but it’s 92% water, and that can encourage a bowel movement. It’s also full of nutrients, with antioxidants that help protect your cells, as well as vitamins A, B, and C, which helps shield you from Ultraviolet rays.
If you want to keep constipation at bay, the bread you eat should be made from 100 per cent whole grains or wheat. Whole-grain pieces of bread are low in fat and high in dietary fibre which can relieve constipation.
