“You need to drink enough water for regular bowel function. Also, start walking for 30 minutes at least 5 times a week,” nutritionist Lisa Afinskaya confirmed on her Telegram channel.
In general, doctors agree that water is the liquid that should always be at hand (in cold weather, you can take it with you in a small thermos). It is important for beauty and health. But with other drinks, you need to be more careful, monitoring their quantity. For example, the habit of constantly drinking tea during the day is fraught with intestinal problems.
“Don’t drink a lot of black tea. For example, 1 or 2 liters of the drink a day can cause problems with the stool,” said the nutritionist, referring to the study.
According to the expert, it is better to give preference to green smoothies. “It’s a super source of fiber. 8.5 grams of fiber per shake,” Afinskaya writes.
Among other useful sources of fiber necessary for the intestines every day, the nutritionist identified sauerkraut, kefir, yogurt without added sugar, kimchi, whole-wheat bread, greens, as well as bulgur, buckwheat, brown rice and other whole grains.
