The Hauser Diet for Constipation
Constipation, although sometimes an embarrassing topic, can be a big problem for many people. You know youâ€™re having a problem with regularity when you canâ€™t remember the last time you went! The trouble in a lot of these situations is that most people do not take in as much dietaryas they need to. The recommended amount of is twenty grams per day. This is a lot! You may think that eating plenty of and everyday would give what you need, but depending on the or vegetable, the content may be relatively low. For example, a piece of may have only 3 or 4 grams of fiber. And since fruit is usually limited on most of our Hauser Diets, that just wonâ€™t cut it. Here are some recommendations on good food choices for each of the Hauser Diets. If regularity is a problem for you, try adding some of these to your daily diet!
We always tell the Lions that they need to make their count! What we mean by that is, make them the highest fiber containing, most nutrient dense you can. The foods that are highest in fiber are usually plant based foods like , , and whole grainsâ€¦all of which are limited (or eliminated like fruit) on the Lion Diet. For your allotted try eating a high fiber cereal in the morning like Kashi brand cereals. For your vegetables include spinach, broccoli, and collard greens on a regular basis. One food that is not limited on your diet but high in fiber is , especially almonds. So use that as one of your snacks during the day to add a few grams! That still may not put you at the 20 grams you need, but there is an alternative, you can take fiber supplements. Try to take a natural supplement. Many of the over the counter ones have artificial sweeteners in them! Benuts.com has a couple of good ones!
Although similar to the Lion, Otters are not as bad off when it comes to getting their fiber in. The plant foods are still limited, but not as much so as the Lion. For one you can eat a little bit of fruit and the amount of vegetables and are increased. Throwing on a Â½ cup of black or garbanzo beans to a can bump you up as much as 8 grams! Having an apple, pear, or Â½ cup of berries for your fruit during the day would give you the most bang for your buck in the fruit category! If it still isnâ€™t adding up for you, get on a natural fiber supplement.
Because of the variety involved in the Bear Diet, it may be easy to be inconsistent with fiber intake. Although fruits are not an abundant part of the Bear Diet, you should be able to get in 20 grams by eating the proper and vegetables. Choosing high fiber bread, which means 4 or more grams per slice, for your sandwiches, and having whole rice instead of white with your stir fry is a good start! If you only have carrots and for your vegetables, you may not be cutting it with fiber, go with like eggplant and swiss chard.
You should not need a fiber supplement, if you make the right choices. Get in the proper amount of fruits, vegetables, and. Donâ€™t just fill up on simple carbs! This means avoiding the white breads and juices. Yes, these are allowed, but if theyâ€™re taking away from the nutrients you need itâ€™s time to tone it down a bit. This way you will be getting the right amount of fiber. Instead of a glass of vegetable juice, eat the real thing! By doing this you should be as regular as can be!
Of all the Hauser Diets this is the one that, when eating the proper foods, should be the most regular of them all. Giraffes are allowed the most of all the fiber rich foods, just donâ€™t take it for granted. Look at your labels and see if the cereal or bread youâ€™re having in the morning has less than 4 grams of fiber. List out your vegetables for the day to see if itâ€™s all cucumbers and celery. If this is the case youâ€™re going to need to step it up a notch. Get out the bran cereal, bulk up those with some broccoli and load up on the lentils. Just adding those few things should get you where you need to be.
One thing that everyone can do, no matter whattheyâ€™re following is drink plenty of water. Water helps to soften your stools. With out water our bowels would turn hard and make us constipated.
