Let’s face it digestion is the key having a healthy lifestyle! No matter how healthy we are eating if our digestion is jacked up it can cause some problems when trying to lose and maintain weight.
The digestion system is basically a big tube called the esophagus the food goes down this tube and then through a valve to our stomach to the small intestine where we get the nutritional value of whatever it was we ate from there it moves to the large intestine this is where water is absorbed to sustain life and then from there the rest goes out the ” poop-shoot ” and into the toilet!
When the process is working the way it should you feel fabulous and fancy free when it’s not you’re shoot in bricks or pooping a river!#notagoodlookforadiva
Here are five ways that you can ensure that your digestion is working and that your internal organization is a smooth running machine!
1.Chew Your Food Divas! Slow your role we’re asking our stomachs to do the most when we inhale food it can not process it fast enough.
2. Watch Portion Size! Prior to our ” Fly By July ” mission we may have eaten a lot and caused for our stomachs to stretch so it’s use to getting the stretch everyday in the beginning or eating less food you can be hungry for a couple of days before the nerve ending around our stomach shrinks back. Persevere Divas!
3. Do Not Drink while Eating! So that your stomach acid can do what it needs to do and break down food also a great tip to promote optimal stomach acid is to Lemon Juice and a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to help stimulate the production of stomach acid.
4. Take a quality probiotic! Our body needs a balance of good and bad bacteria to digest food. Going back to why it’s important to chew your food if we inhale food our bacteria does not digest it so it basically ferments in our body and we pass gas and fart to levels unknown to mankind! It stinks. This can also happen if we do not have high enough levels of acid in our stomach. A quality probiotic promotes healthier digestion and trips to throne with ease.
5. Get a handle on STRESS! When we are stressed out our bodies make Adrenaline because it thinks it’s in danger. Now because we are not running away from bears or typically our life is not physically our body creates Cortisol to help us feel good and chill out and we end up craving fat filled food and gain weight. Yoga is a great way to de-stress and connect with your inner diva or even an after dinner walk or maybe even catch up with an old friend. Take a bubble bath whatever it is do you unplug and de-stress Dear Diva!
I love to add my probiotic in my smoothies!
If you suffer from constipation or irregular bowel movements you need some probiotics in your life!
I use USANA’s probiotic because it is dairy-free sugar free and gluten-free! It’s designed to support digestion and healthy immune function. 😉
Set your Poo Free Divas!
