I am Dani, mother of two, vegetarian, have a vegetable garden at home and, I like to eat everything green and healthy, sharing my experience

I know so many people who have a stuck or lazy gut.

I had this kind of problem in my teens because I didn't like to eat anything.

With adulthood, he learned to eat and know my body.

Do you know your body? Do you know your gut?

Does your gut work like clockwork? Or like the circus tightrope?

A properly functioning intestine you have:

  • Improved mood and well-being
  • The rapid absorption of nutrients
  • Decreased daily discomfort and illness
  • Strengthening immunity
  • Improved overall health

I changed my gut, my routine, so I'll give you 13 tips to change your habits and be happier!

But why do you have a stuck intestine?

Some possible causes,

  • Routine changes, such as vacations and travel;
  • Low consumption of fiber foods (vegetables, fruits, and whole grains);
  • Changes in routine;
  • Stress;
  • Little water intake;
  • Intolerance to lactose or gluten;
  • Do not perform the physical activity;
  • Use of some medicines, especially medicines that contain iron.

Calm down. I scared you with all this!

1. Drink water

Water is essential for everything in our body.

And don't even talk to the gut. Ideal for your intestines to function well and have a drink before each meal.

And in the morning, you can have five glasses of water and, they are talking about their own experience, my gut today, and a watch.

And water also helps other foods that you consume to contribute to your gut.

2. Doing exercises

Another important thing is the exercises, from my own experience. I drink my coffee and go for a walk when I come back when I go to the bathroom.

A sedentary lifestyle does not match regular bowel.

3. Eat fiber

Eat fiber, oatmeal with milk and fruit.

Pieces of bread prefer wholemeal, have fiber, bread also have nuts, which's very good.

White flour bread helps to trap the intestine.

4. Cooked vegetables

5. Avoid excessive candy


Some vegetables like carrots and beets trap the intestines a lot if you eat cooked, prefer to eat raw.

Cooked vegetables contribute nutrients such as iron and other minerals, helping the intestines to function.

Some vegetables for your gut to function: kale, endive, radicchio, spinach, chard, broccoli.

Make all these vegetables daily, with garlic, onion.

Sweets have never been good for health.

Sugar has numerous health hazards and causes a trapped intestine.

And when I talk about sugar, it's not the candy in the bakery, and the sugar in the chocolate powder, the bakery cake, the chocolate ice cream, in short, everything that contains sugar.

And if you eat sweets every day, you can be sure that your intestines will not work.

6. Excessive red meat

I speak here of my experience with red meats, and my intestines stopped, that I abandoned it on my menu.

Let's think together, red meat has fat, but don't forget that the cow has antibiotics, so when we eat beef, we also eat what's inside it.

It is to think not and!

7. Relax

If you are a stressed person, going to the bathroom can be a difficult task.

If you have a busy life, without schedules, and without routine, how do you go to the bathroom every day?

For you to go to the bathroom every day, you need to relax, be calm.

A biology professor once said when I was in high school,

"If you take more than 5 minutes in the bathroom, you have bowel problems".

8. Don't skip meals

Remember I talked about schedule and routine the day before yesterday?

If you don't have time to eat, your intestines won't work.

For you to go to the bathroom every day, eat all your daily meals, you will suffer to go to the bathroom.

9. Fruit with pomace

You want to go to the bathroom every day, eat fruit with bagasse and peel if possible.

The houses and bagasse have many snakes that will help regulate the intestine.

Some fruits for you to eat:

  • Orange
  • peach,
  • apple,
  • grape,
  • mango,
  • persimmon,
  • watermelon,
  • papaya,
  • avocado,
  • and banana.

When you go to the bathroom, only go if you feel like it.

Don't be praying a third asking your intestines to work.

Going to the bathroom unwillingly is forcing your gut to work very fast, in which case, you may have hemorrhoids.

10. Olive oil

Olive oil helps to loosen your gut, so you can cook vegetables, meats, season salads, which will help you a lot.

If you make pasta, add a drizzle of olive oil, it helps the intestine.

For your gut to function regularly, your food needs to be moist.

11. Consume whole foods

Whole foods help your bowel function, so choose whole-grain bread.

Brown rice is best for your gut and you can mix it with quinoa.

Whole-grain bread has a lot of variety today.

If you are making a pie or cake, prefer whole grain flour.

12. Prebiotics

Prebiotics is food components that help the growth of good bacteria in the intestine.

We can find it in milk and yogurts, lean cheeses, bananas, onions, artichokes, and whole grains.

13. Probiotics

Probiotics are living microorganisms capable of improving intestinal balance.

You can find milk, natural yogurts, and other milk drinks.


Prefer natural yogurts with fruits to your liking than buying ready-made yogurts that contain dyes, sugars, and preservatives.

Final Considerations

Treating the intestine is not an easy task and requires sometimes radical changes on our part.

Think that if you follow some of these tips, you will feel the change in your body.

Intestine up to date is healthy, and beautiful skin and being happy without stress.
