    Hi All,

    I've just started SW after some wins and loses with WW, my question is really its horrible- does anyone know if banana's make you constipated? I always though they did, which is a pain because their so filling, actually and eggs, is this true or just an old wives tail?

    Thank you!

    No, they don't cause constipation. But if you already have a condition that causes constipation then it may exacerbate it. But between me and my partner we get through loads of bananas and we've not had any problems at all.

    I eat a banana a day and I am ok. I get it if I eat bread. Bananas and eggs are a big part of our diet in my home!!
