2. Increase your fiber intake
Fiber is a vital part of a healthy and balanced diet. It helps prevent health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, weight gain and some forms of cancers. It also improves our digestive health. Most people today do not get enough fiber into their bodies and this we need to change. It’s a really simple and highly effective way of changing our daily diets.
There are foods that are high in fiber and these include peas, apples, oats, beans, citrus fruits, carrots just to mention a few. These fibers help our bodies move the contents of what we have consumed out of the colon and help produce bulky stools. It’s like an agent to help the waste removal truck move the garbage from one place to the next. In that way, they prevent you from constipation.
Because fiber is derived from plants our bodies cannot digest it and only uses it to aid our bodies by moving waste out of our systems. As we cannot digest fiber it does not provide any calories to our system like other foods. Soluble fibers dissolve in water in our digestive system and this helps reduce the amount of cholesterol in our bloodstream.
If you are constipated (this will make you bloated and heavier) and you increase your fiber intake and water these will soften your stools and allow them to pass easier. Our bodies need a healthy balanced diet to keep it functioning well and too often we load up on the bad things and forget about the good things. Simple one here to follow cut out sugars and add fiber to your daily diet.
