might drinking beer make you have no stool but gain weight and weather not increase constipation?

Alcohol: Either beer, whiskey or wine and cafeine intake all dehydrate and can contribute to constipation. Cut these out and replace with 80-100 ounces of water, juices, gatorade type fluids and this should resolve.
