Diet for constipation tips
One of the main things to do to alleviate constipation is to eat foods that are higher in fiber. What kind of foods are high in fiber?
Basically, fiber is found in everything that grows from the ground, not animals or animal products.
All too often people end up eating refined, processed, packaged food or fast food and these are basically devoid of fiber, increasing constipation. If you tend to eat these kinds of foods start replacing some of them with healthier choices and continue implementing changes over time. Changes that are made slowly are more likely to be long lasting.
If it has a bar code and comes in a package or came through your car window it’s not food and it will keep you constipated. The exception is a cereal like All Bran, which is high in fiber. Eat an abundance of fresh, whole, foods in their most natural state possible.
Eat whole foods that are high in fiber:
- Brussel sprouts
- Sweet potatoes
- Sprouts are a rich source of fiber and as they are living, they give life!
