Everyone has heard this a million times before. Something to consider is this; how difficult do you imagine it is for your body to process foods which are still solid or barely chewed? It must work so much harder. In your mouth is where the process known as digestion starts. Your saliva is full of digestive enzymes which get food breaking down before it enters the next stage. If the food is not broken down well, it makes your stomach’s job a whole lot harder.

Nutrients won’t be taken in as well and the stomach may ache as it deals with digesting foods with little help from enzymes. The recovery time may take a while and this leads to problems evacuating the bowels. How can you get the amount of water recommended into your system each day?

Exercising your body as you do it is also recommended.
