Tummy aches, upset stomachs and the occasional face downwards to the toilet…these are household problems we all know and come across every once in awhile.Common dietary knowledge dictates that by eating clean food at the right temperature from a reliable source can get you to dodge the occasional stomach bullet that is illness, that’s correct! But are there other factors you haven't learned about yet that affect your digestion? Find out more below:

 

 

Eat Lots Of Fiber

Consuming meals that are high in fiber and rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains can improve your digestive health. Diets that are high in fiber help by getting food moving through your digestive tract, which decreases the likelihood of getting constipation, a lot of people have also given credit to foods with high fiber in helping with their weight loss journeys. It has also been proven that food which is rich in fiber can help treating digestive conditions such as hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome and diverticulosis.

 

 

Eat Lean Meats Only

Protein is a very important part of a healthy and well-balanced diet, but not fatty cuts of meat that can lead to indigestion. When consuming meat, making sure you are always having the leanest cut and skinless poultry. While knowing that fat is not something you should cut out because having it in small portions is healthy, just try getting it from other sources such as nuts, fish and some vegetables.

 

 

Always Stay Hydrated

Drink water frequently and constantly because it helps in dissolving some of the fats and soluble fibers which you consume, allowing your body to dispose of them more easily.

 

 

Kick Your Bad Habits To The Curb

Smoking, drinking alcohol and excessive amounts of caffeine can bite you in… well, in this case the stomach! All these bad habits could lead to serious problems such as heartburn and stomach ulcers.

 

Don’t Stress

You’d be surprised with the amount of problems that come with stress, mental and physical! Many conditions such as acid reflux and changes in intestinal flow can rise due to your mental wellness. Stress can change the pace of which the food travels down the digestive tract, and a change in its speed could lead to digestive problems that will need medical care.

 

 

Stay happy and healthy, Amman!
