Can over eating cause constipation?

Can over eating cause constipation? I don't mean dry stuff, I mean just over eating to the point of being stuffed all the time? Just looking for more answers. Thanks.

They are sugary meals, which constipate, or a lot of meat. Overeating may cause"heavy stomach" since all this food takes more time to be digested and stays more time in the stomach before proceedes to intestine. Sugary meals can also cause bloating.

Not enough flluid and moving, together with stress or depression, and you have a recipe for constipation.

Overeating, if it is due to skipping meals, yes, it can constipate.

Thats me. Skip meals and make up for missed food all at once. Ok. Thank you. I will set a timer to remind myself to eat more often.
