Constipation can lead to all sorts of health issues. This natural food will help get you regular when eaten daily.
You read that right. Eating a sweet potato a day can relieve constipation and get you going to the bathroom regularly. Which ideally should be 1-3 times a day.
One thing to remember is to eat the sweet potato plain. No butter, milk, oil, avocado or any other type of fat. It can be boiled baked or grilled. My favorite way is to wash it, cut the end off is needed, cook with the skin on, in the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or silicone baking mat. Cook until liquid starts coming out of it. It’s the sweetest this way.
To ensure regularity for life consider adopting a primarily, or complete, whole foods plant based diet. For more information check out Dr. John Mcdougall’s website or one of his great books, like the starch solution.
