..another shitty blog post.

...after chatting on the phone for a good 30 minutes with a friend equally, if not greater than, obsessed with bowel movements as I.. 
...I have decided to blog once again.. about bowel movements!!

what does an optimal bowel movement look like???


it should be missile-shaped!

Whether you are someone who already maintains optimal digestion.. or you are thriving to achieve optimal digestion, I would like to include some handy tips for improving digesting!!

  • eat only when hungry
  • start your day with a glass of room temperature/warm water
  • eat in a calm, seated, and settled environment
  • eat at a moderate pace
  • chew your food well and be mindful of its smells, tastes, and textures
  • eat freshly cooked meals - avoid leftovers and stale, processed foods
  • sip a little warm water thru out meals
  • allow a few minutes after eating to relax
  • try to eat your biggest meal at lunchtime when digestion is strongest
  • allow a few hours in-between meals
  • allow at least 2 hours between dinner and bedtime
  • sip warm water thru out the day
  • try not to eat on the run or in the car
  • avoid ice-cold foods and drinks
  • eat in a neutral or positive environment
  • give thanks that went into growing, harvesting, and preparing your food <3

**i realize that some of these are near impossible for a multitude of reasons...

Fiber is also a great way to achieve optimal bowel movements!!!..
..but in an effort to hold your attention, we will talk about fiber next time!!

Happy Pooping!! (:
