In brief: Fresh fruits and veg

Fresh fruits and vegetables in their natural state are high in water, and fiber and will help constipation.
You might benefit from additional water in your diet. Having 5-7 servings a day of fresh fruits and vegetables should help constipation. Aim for at least 25 grams of fiber a day and a gallon of water or fluids a day. ( each fruit is about 2-3 g of fiber) each veggie is about 3 g fiber.
