We all love jumping on diets and fads and the latest healthy trends in order to look and feel the best we can. It’s only natural to want that. But what if the answer was just as natural? What if the answer to all your dieting was just to help your body better digest the foods you eat? That’s right, we’re talking about the scientifically-proven fact that you are what you eat or, to put it another way, both your lifestyle and your diet affects the way you digest what you eat.
So, without wasting another minute, here are some amazing tips to help you boost your digestive system and let your body look n’ feel as good as possible:
- Forever Fiber
What every digestive system is craving is foods high in fiber. The reason: this is what helps keep food moving without a problem, drastically reducing your chances of feeling, how do we say, blocked and bloated. Our advice: eat gut health foods, whole grains, veggies, fruits and lovely legumes. If nothing else, you’ll find it much easier to stay a healthy weight.
- Super Supplements
We’re not one of those blogs that like to knock diet supplements for no good reason, especially those that perfectly suited to the human body which, in this case perfectly sums up the ketogenic diet. It is made to work hand-in-hand with your body’s digestive system, making it easier for you to break down, process and transform fat into energy.
- Lovely And Lean
You’ll remember from your science classes at school that a balanced diet is essential to feeling great, which is where protein slots nicely into the equation. However, fatty meats can work against your digestive system. What should you do: choose lovely, lean cuts of meat instead. Things like skinless chicken breasts, 0% fat mincemeat and pork loins are all great options.
- Perfectly Probiotic
These are nothing more than healthy bacteria (the same as the ones already keeping your digestive system happy). The benefits of probiotics go way beyond just enhancing your body’s ability to absorb nutrients; they also help you break down lactose, boost your immune system and can even address any issues of IBS. If you want to add these to your meal-times, try eating low-fat yogurt on the regular, as well as kafir.
- Hydrate, Mate
One of the oldest and best tricks in the book is to drink plenty of water. Plenty. Of. Water. It is just so essential when flushing your body’s digestive system. To give it to you in less romantic terms, the fiber you consume will pull the water into your colon and allow everything to pass through there without any grumbles or rumbles. There, that was too bad.
- No Bad Habits
As cool as Hollywood may make alcohol, coffee and smoking look, all of these are going to play havoc on your digestive system (just think back to the morning after your last big night out). It’s not fun. Not fun at all, especially if it leads to ulcers and/or heartburn. Oh, yeah, that can happen.
