Hey, I’m down 18lbs and now 125. 5’3 height but would like to cut now. I’m doing macros but now constipated despite so much water...maybe too much coffee but who is perfect. I’m plant based so it’s a struggle to get even close to 3nough protein but added a plant based shake and tofu...woukd these be causing hard, dry stools.

    Are you getting enough fiber? Are you getting enough fat?

    Have you reduced your food intake?

    Coffee would have the opposite effect on your body. It doesn't constipate you.
    Are you entirely plant based, as in vegan, or are you vegetarian? Just curious because if you ARE consuming dairy, that could be the issue. Or, like the poster above me stated, you could be lacking in fiber or fat.
    Sometimes our bodies just get thrown off for a bit, too. If it doesn't last more than a week or cause you pain or discomfort, I wouldn't worry. See a doctor if it continues, though.

    Coffee is a natural diuretic, so it shouldn’t be the coffee. Maybe up your water intake or try to introduce probiotics in your daily routine. That has helped me a lot.
