While you may feel it’s taboo to talk about the big B.M. (bowel movement), it’s actually a very important point of discussion in the Power Foods Lifestyle, and a topic I bring up frequently with my clients.

I hope you have a great take-away from this information and say to yourself:

“I need to listen to what’s going on in my body. Abnormal bowel movements and/or flatulence are my body saying, ‘Look, we have some problems. I can’t handle this.’ I need to change up what I’m eating to honor what it’s telling me.”

Regular Bowel Movements

  • BM happens in the first 2-3 hours of the day naturally
  • Regular means 2-4x/day
  • Well formed stools that are not difficult to pass
  • There is not much wiping that needs to happen
  • Dive right into the toilet bowl without much splash
  • S-shaped as the lower part of the rectum is moving nutrients along well
  • Should not be super stinky at all

If you have constipation or diarrhea-like bowel movements, this episode is for YOU!!
