You read right, today I want to talk to you about poo – or the lack thereof. I am certain that you will learn something new today, so make sure you keep on ready.
The reason I want to talk to you about poo today is (alright, let’s call it bowel movements from now on so we can all stop giggling and focus):
I was shocked to learn that many doctors consider as few as 3 bowel movements a week normal (insert shock faced emoji if I had one here)!!!
No. No. No. Let’s not make that a norm. We should all be going every single day and if that is not the case right now, we need to do something about it.
Not only should we be having one bowel movement a day, it should take no longer than 12-24 hours for our food to pass through us.
Okay, sounds good…but how do we time this? Eat half a raw beat and be patient. Observe your poo and see how long it takes to come out the other end (if you hate beets, eat 2 Tbsp of corn without chewing it).
And, are you surprised about the results? Most people are. I always get my clients with this one. Chances are that if you are overweight, your transit time is probably on the slow side.
So now that we have established your transit time, let’s see what we can do to help the situation because a healthy digestive system is essential for a healthy body and optimal weight loss.
The following are some simple tips to keep your transit time within the 12-24 hour range:
If you have digestive issues, food along will not be enough in which case supplementation is recommended to obtain a more therapeutic dose of this beneficial bacteria.
Learned something new today? I sure hope so. Please share with a friend who could benefit from this.
And as always, leave a comment below if you have any questions or if you want to share your newly discovered transit time with us ;)
In health & happiness,
