Diet and digestion: look after your digestive system


 - Diet and digestion: look after your digestive system
On the final day of your diet, concentrate on helping your digestive system.

Why? Bad digestion deprives the body of essential nutrients it needs for metabolism and weight loss.

How? First of all, chew each mouthful slowly, coating your food in saliva to start the digestion process off well.

Eat in moderation, at regular times, taking your time, and watch what you eat when you're over-tired (mentally or physically).

Have a break before pudding, don't eat in front of the TV and don't carry on troughing during lengthy conversations after dinner - leave the table.

And make sure you get regular exercise to improve your digestion and keep you regular!
