Let’s get real here... let’s talk bowels and gut health!Gut health is becoming a more and more accepted conversation at the moment, and as dietitians it is a hot topic for us!
Are you experiencing any of the following:
- Floating stools
- “Fluffy” stools
- Pains in the stomach
Or.... a combination of all of the above all at the same time or all at different times?
Now as yourself:
- are you having grains with every meal?
- Are you having 5 serves of vegetables per day?
- Are you having 2 serves of fruit per day (and not at the same time)?
- Are you drinking 8 glasses of water per day?
- Are you having some healthy fats (avocado/ seeds/ olive oil/ fatty fish)
- Are you limiting added sugars?
If you have tried these techniques and you are still having gut or bowel issues, it might be time to give us a call!Keep a food and symptom diary for a few days and we can help you find the trigger to that uncomfortable tummy!
