Can’t Poop?

fruit and veggies

I’ve heard people tell me that they only go #2 once or twice a week. Wow! Their stomachs must be really bloated! I also hear people proudly proclaim that they add powdered fiber to their drinks so that they can poop. If this sounds like you then you need to drink more water and have a lot more fruits and vegetables. Cut back on bread and pasta too, which are clogging. If your stomach hurts from eating vegetables, try cooking them longer. Raw vegetables are hard to digest. You may also want to buy digestive enzymes to stop the gas and bloating. If one product doesn’t work, try another. Eventually you’ll find the right combination of enzymes that work for you.

Another suggestion is to spread out your vegetables throughout the day. Once I ate a whole head of broccoli with dinner, which I regretted for the rest of the evening. You also don’t want to load sulfurous vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and beans all in one meal. That might be quite a night!
