Keep It Moving While on the Move

Traveling can be rough on your daily routines, including your bodily functions. Changing times zones or just eating the processed carbs they hand out on planes these days can make it hard to keep your intestines moving. So here are some tips on how to stay "regular" when traveling.

  • Drink water whenever you can as your choice of beverage. Not only will it keep you hydrated, but it'll also keep things moving.
  • When traveling, bring your own snacks. Nibble on carrot sticks, apples (with the peel), trail mix with dried fruit, LARABARS, and Go Lean Crunchy! bars. These all have tons of fiber.
  • During meals, make sure to include fresh salads and fruits, cooked veggie dishes, beans, and whole grains.
  • Pack some methylcellulose pills, such as Citrucel. They're made of 100 percent soluble fiber, so they'll help you go, and for most people, they don't cause gas, bloating, or diarrhea.

I'm totally going to try these tips. Last year I went to Mexico for a week and I was so plugged up it wasn't funny. I don't want to have that happen again...I think I wasn't drinking enough water.
