Should you continue to eat regular meals when constipated?

Returned home Monday from an oversees business trip. Haven't pooped since I got home -- almost a week. My question should I continue to eat three meals a day? So for I have, but my belly feels tight. I was hoping the incoming food would push what's behind it alone, but hasn't worked. I haven't taken a laxative yet. Has anyone had a problem like this? By the way I am 24 years old, male, on the heavy side.

....i just starting getting this way from medication. are you in any medication? i was on calcium which really blocked my bowels for many days. i used glycerine suppositories but sometimes they did nt even work. i also formed so much gas along with being constipated. are you exelling a lot of gas? maybe that is why your belly is so tight. my best let me know.
