'Tis the season of delicious holiday meals, rich desserts, and afternoon leftovers.
Of course this has us thinking about healthy digestion!
As you gear up for a season of holiday parties and platters, be mindful that healthy eating habits do not need to be put on hold and should be practiced year-round. If not, a short-term or long-term result could be unwanted and inconvenient digestive tract conditions and disorders.
For example, research has shown an estimated 115 million Americans have some form of an upper digestive tract disorder, including plain-old indigestion, acid reflux, heartburn, and Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). How much of this can be attributed to what we eat and how we eat it?
- Eat a generous quantity of fiber every day. We're talking upwards of 20 grams. You can do this by eating whole grains, legumes, dried fruit, berries, apples, certain nuts, and flaxseeds, to name a few.
- Drink 8 to 10 cups of fluid every day. We prefer water, but you can also complement agua with milk, soup, and juices. Be mindful, though, to avoid excess sugar in both your glass and on your plate.
- Exercise regularly and try to eat your meals at the same time every day.
