Instead of feeling overstuffed, listen to body cues and chew food thoroughly to ensure you're not eating more food than your body can easily handle. Incorporating 4-5 smaller meals throughout the day versus 2-3 larger meals may assist in alleviating issues like heartburn, too. BE ACTIVE 3 Regular physical activity can also help to keep food moving through your digestive tract. Simple activities such as taking a short 10 minute walk after eating or stretching can do the trick. While the current Dietary Guidelines recommend adults take part in at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of physical activity each week, it's important to note that adults who participate in any amount of physical activity gain health benets. So no matter how much you're able to do, get that body moving! According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, an estimated 60-70 million Americans are affected by digestive disease. Digestive diseases range from irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease to peptic ulcers and acid reflux. Click here to print recipe
