Constipated. Regular exercises, healthy diet. What is the reason?

Hi, I am 36 year old active woman. I go to the gym 5-6 times a week working for at least an hour. I eat a good serving of fruits and vegetables (usually 2 apples, one banana, lots of veggies). I am eating a Fiber One bar for snacks and have small healthy meals. Yet I find myself constipated :( Meaning, I do not have a full done feeling. When I do, it feels so good and I feel so light and active, I almost want to dance. What can I do to make me have healthy bowels everyday? Thanks in advance.

From your history there is no obvious reason for having constipation.
you are observing all things which prevent constipation.
So there might be having some chronic amebic infection preventing normal stool to pass.
Take one anti amebic medicine like Metrogyl or tinidazole course for 5-7 days and you will be alright.
Take plenty of water.
Ok and take care.
