Times have changed, at one time families sat and ate meals together, had a balanced diet of fruit, vegetables, protein, nuts, seeds and some whole grains.
In today's world, people are in a big hurry to get to work, school, outside activities, picking up and dropping off kids and eating on the run, or just sitting in front of computer, TV or cell phone letting life pass by while eating frozen or fast food. These types of lifestyle can cause many different health challenges including poor intestinal health.
It is very important to incorporate fruits and vegetable into your diet, they provide your body with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. It is very important to eat moist fiber in order to maintain good bathroom habits. Eating processed grains, cereal, bread, pasta and such, can cause weight gain and bowel issues including constipation. Grains turn into sugar when they are ingested and then they turn into sticky fat. Not only can they cause constipation, they can also cause an imbalance in your friendly bacteria which will affect your microbiome. Drinking water, staying away from juices and sodas is also very important for health and healthy intestines. Both are very high in sugar and or other unhealthy substances.
If a person has diabetes or is on a low carb diet, limit your fruit to low glycemic fruit, such as apples and berries.
The digestive and intestinal system feed the entire body and must function properly. The colon in particular, must be functioning properly to carry waist from the body.
