  • Eat more vegetables (eat veggies of different colors)
  • Eat fish
  • Choose organic produce
  • Eat beans that are not GMO produce
  • Eat healthy fats (omega 3),
  • Reduce carbohydrate intake
  • Steam or boil your foods rather than fry or grill
  • Eat 1 minute boiled eggs
  • Eat food for sustenance, not purely for pleasure or entertainment
  • Do not consume too much salt
  • Avoid junk food
  • Avoid foods that are labelled “fat-free”, “sugar-free”, they have more harmful chemicals
  • Avoid foods with artificial sweeteners like aspartame
  • Don’t buy foods because they are labelled “healthy” if they contain high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, and hidden sugars.
  • Exercise regularly
  • Have enough sleep
  • Reduce stress, it can make you fat.

Any drastic change in your diet can cause constipation, so make sure you eat a lot of dark green leafy vegetables, and other naturally high fiber foods. Your digestive system will typically adjust after a week or two, but you should consult your doctor if it continues. (Other good sources of fiber include: flax seed, psyllium, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and beans. Remember, you can always look at the nutrition facts to see the daily percentage of fiber given in different foods. For fresh, unpackaged foods, you can look up nutrition facts online; although, it usually won’t ever hurt you to eat fresh, unpackaged fruits and veggies!)
