So, taking fiber out of the equation, which makes for a harder stool: protein/fat or non-complex carbohydrates?

I'm asking because ever since around Christmas, I've been constipated. This coincides with eating more bad carbs. During my extreme, year-long very low-carb diet, I'm pretty sure I was never, ever constipated. Or gassy. Now, it's up to the nines with the pooping problems. So can I solve this by going back to stricter low-carb? Yeah, I could just try it and find out, but I've had it up to here with this shit and I don't want to change my diet in a way that could makes things harder to bear (heh).
