What are some common causes of constipation?

Constipation can be caused or worsened by a sedentary lifestyle and a diet low in fiber and high in fat. Exercise improves muscle tone throughout the body, including the digestive tract. Additionally, not responding to the urge to have a bowel movement can cause the stool to dry out in the colon, resulting in constipation.
