Dehydration (Drink more water), skip bananas as they may cause constipation, a diet that is too low in fat (so add a little butter),or too low in fiber (take a fiber pill) lack of exercise or eating overly processed foods, some medicines like pain killers or buprofen, blood pressure or allery meds,, too much calcium & sometimes too much of dairy products, If you are regularly constipated itís reasonable to do a blood sugar test as diabetes can cause constipation.
