DIGESTIVE TIPS FOR ALL
THING TO DO
MAKE TIME FOR MEALS

CHEW YOU FOOD AT LEAST 11-31 TIMES

TAKE DIGESTIVE ENZYMES
This is especially for travel and eating out (restaurants and friends and family's included).
TAKE CARE OF YOUR GUT
That means probiotics….make sure they are kept in the refrigerator and if you are travelling find one that is in spore form so that it keeps its potency out of the fridge.
TAKE CHARGE OF THE MENU
Whether you are picking the restaurant or hosting the potluck; make sure there are plenty of dishing that you can choose from.
THINKG NOT TO DO
DON’T DRING WITH YOUR MEALS
Try not to consume beverages (that's ALL drinks) at least 15 minutes before and 45-60 minutes after a meal
DON’T EAT LATE AT NIGHT
Your chance of heartburn can greatly increase if you overeat and then lie down after your meal. Try not to eat after 8pm.
DON’T EAT FRUIT AFTER A MEAL
Fruit digests quickly so after a meal it can get held up in the stomach and start to ferment making for gas and bloating.
