2. Watch the Oil

Fat takes longer to digest in your stomach than any other food group, which is good since it keeps us full and helps us from reaching in the candy bowl all afternoon, or munching on junk all day because we’re starving. We need healthy fats, but if you suffer from digestion problems, eliminate the sources of oil that you’re eating to see if you find improvements. Oil tends to sit in the stomach, which can cause pain and discomfort for some people. Instead, get your healthy fats from nuts, seeds and avocados. These have added fiber, vitamins and proteins that will aid digestion, and also be excreted quicker due to their fiber content. You’ll also digest them better since whole plant foods have natural enzymes that aid digestion already built within them.
