Believe it or not, improper digestion is common on today's society whether it is eating too fast or 'swallowing your food' whole, it can cause a handful of problems. Gas, bloating, and stomach cramping are just a few, but more importantly improper digestion means you are not absorbing the full amount of nutrients from the food you are eating. Lack of nutrients leads to many health problems. So digestion is important!
So how can we improve digestion? It is estimated that around 70% of americans have below standard digestion.
Below is a list of simple things you can do to while at the dinner table:
Take your time! Do not rush while eating your food, this will also cause you to eat less!
Take smaller bites and thoroughly chew, chew, chew your food. While you chew saliva breaks down the food for easier digestion. Not enough chewing makes your stomach bear the burden.
Wait until after you eat to drink liquids. Drinking while eating dilutes acid in your stomach to break down the food.
Increase your fiber foods. High fiber foods are discussed here.
Whole natural foods are much better and easily absorbed and broken down than imitation boxed and canned foods.
Avoid greasy, fried, and other junk foods.
Avoid late night meals and snacking. Dont eat 2 hours before bed is a well known maxim!.
