How do you figure out which foods contain fiber?

It's easy!

They Grow!

So that includes...

  • Vegetables
  • Fruits and dried fruits
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Whole grains

What foods don't contain fiber?

  • Animals and any products derived from animals, ie dairy, cheese etc.
  • Just about all packaged, processed, fast foods (Sometimes fiber is added in although it may be synthetic fiber and have none of the benefits of real fiber. Inulin is synthetic fiber, check your list of ingredients!)

Natural Solutions for Constipation

You want to be a river not a stagnant pond!

The most important thing to do as part of your natural solutions to constipation is to drink plenty of water every day. If you need to, put some lemon or lime or cucumber slices or strawberries or any other natural flavor.

How much do you need?

About 1/2 your body weight in ounces.

Coffee and tea don't count, in fact they are diuretics which means that like alcohol they deplete the body of fluids.

For every cup of coffee, tea or alcoholic drink you have increase your water intake by 1 and 1/2 cups.
