I hate to lie. HATE it! But, a month ago, while having dinner with some new friends, I told a little white lie. I said that I had to rush home because my babysitter called and my kid was sick. The truth? My stomach was erupting like Mt. Vesuvius, and I knew that the Imodium I popped would only last me until I got home before another emergency run to the bathroom. Stomach trouble is a double-whammy of pain and embarrassment. So I decided I would finally take the plunge! After days of researching foods to battle gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation… I came up with this list of “golden foods”… foods that promise to keep you regular and your tummy happy. And guess what? After just a few days, I felt much better. And now, a month later, I am a whole new person. No more Imodium. No more emergency runs to the bathroom. And no more lies when out with friends! After I shared this list in a Facebook group that I’m in, and it worked for tons of people there too, I realized this list was too good to keep to myself. So here it is! Share it around and spread the love!
Why brown rice and not white rice? Because of the fiber, which is fantastic for your digestive system. It also helps to speed up the the removal of toxins from your gut. If you have constipation or hemorrhoid issues, brown rice is a must try!
So I just told you that fiber is a good thing. And lots of fruits are actually high in fiber. However, a lot of them also are filled with sugar, which makes your gut produce gas. Not kiwi though! Kiwi is both high in fiber and low in sugar… plus, it is delicious, so that makes it a total win!
