Basics Of Nutrition

“If you keep good food in your fridge, you will eat good food”. -Erick McAdams

There are many things to learn about when it comes to nutrition. However, the basic concept is “What goes in must come out.”  You must always remember, your body is like a machine.  It takes what it needs from what you feed it and removes the rest by urine and the bowels.

If you notice you have a problem eliminating waste products, you should take it seriously.  Make an appointment to go and see a doctor. Many people are constipated. Don’t be shy or anything, it can be very serious to your health.

The first step is finding out if there even is a problem. First you should see how many bowel movements you have daily (BM). If you have one per day it’s not a problem. However, it is better to have two or three BM’s a day and more if you eat more often. Sadly, if you find you are having one per week or two per month, then you have a serious problem.

For some people they might say they don’t find the time. The reason could be they are out all day and would prefer to have their BM at home rather than a public bathroom.  However, you will keep your colon quite happy if you go several times for the day. If you are looking for a trick it would be to increase your fibre intake.  You can do this by eating a lot of raw fruits and vegetables, steamed beets and using digestive enzymes with your meals. Do whatever you can; it will be beneficial to you.

I have just lightly touched on the subject, but if you have a problem you should consult a doctor and seek help.
