Another strain on digestion
Unfamiliar food, changing time zones and different climates are the most common causes of constipation when travelling. Exotic ingredients and spices, unusually large quantities and rich food, combined with a change in daily routine and perhaps higher temperatures than normal, also put a strain on the stomach and bowels. Depending on the type of changes and your body’s natural predisposition, needing a few days to acclimatise to the new conditions is completely normal. To make the adjustment easier, eat light, fibre-rich meals and, particularly in warmer climes, drink more than you normally would at home.
