Constipation.

Posted on

This is a rather odd topic I know but some people actually don’t know why and how they are clogged up. xD Naturally, fresh fruit and vegetables are natures way of flushing out the  system.  Even if you think you can lose weight without fruit and vegetables or they are too complex to think up ways to cook them, remember, it’s okay to eat many of them raw! (Except maybe potatoes). No-one will think you’re weird if you’re out on a bus nomming an apple, well….they might if you’re deep-throating a cucumber while attempting to hide from view in the back seat….

GROSS OUT WARNING :  – GUYS LOOK AWAY IF PERIODS GROSS YOU (THOUGH KEEP IN MIND, THIS MIGHT HELP YOU WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND/WIFE/MISTRESS/FANCY-BIT/ LIFE-PARTNER/RIGHT-HAND IF SHE’S GRUMPY) AND SCROLL DOWN TO THE SAFE ZONE xD

Periods. Awful, messy, moody, depressing things. You’re emotionally charged and losing blood. Damn right you’re pissed of, but that’s not all! You can also get constipated due to the hormones going “I don’t fucking know :D”. One of the ways I learned to help is eating more fruit and vegetables and heaps more water. You’re flushing blood out so the body clings on to every last bit of water it can so drink more. Lean meats like grilled chicken are  always good but especially good now for replenishing lost iron in the blood, and milk replaces the calcium to reduce cramps so that’s something to try to. Banana’s are good for extra potassium too! Simply put, even though you feel like crap and want to eat chocolate and crisps, you’ll feel better with healthier food. I heard that it can get worse as you get older though so if it gets completely out of control, maybe check with your doctor, perhaps it might be the onset of IBS? p.s. Online doctors are NOT a good idea.

Purple Cow

I wouldn’t recommend Milk from this source….unless it’s CHOCOLATE Milk.

SAFE ZONE (For the cowards out there :P)

It’s always a good idea to eat a little salad with every meal. A lot of people think that if you have salad with your dinner then you don’t need to have salad with your other meals. My boyfriend’s parents helped me learn a neat little trick 20% meat, 40% carbs and 40% vegetables. For EVERY meal. It helps you stay regular. Remember, not going enough can cause bowel cancer among other things due to the bacteria… (Ew!) and makes for a very grumpy person! So keep nomming green 🙂

That doesn’t mean cut out fats completely!!! That’s impossible, just keep paying attention to what you are nomming!

Oh, I’m also gonna post what I ate today for reflection purposes…. and in case anyone is interrested 😛

FOOD DIARY – 22/06/2012

Breakfast (at 12.30pm)

boiled and chopped up egg (in a cup) with four crispbreads – 200kcal

I was disappointed in this because I boiled the egg for too long and it tasted all dry and blergh!  I settled on eating it anyway due to hunger. It was okay, but it could have been much better .___.

Snack (at 3pm)

Two Packet of Crisps – 200kcal

Yeah so I had an accident. They were there and I was bored and there was nothing on the telly. I need to get out more and stop lurking near food!

Dinner (6.35pm)

Pasta with peppers and mushrooms in a tomato and basil sauce – 300kcals

REALLY REALLY YUMMY! It made up for the iffy overcooked breakfast. I’m proud of this because I managed to stop when I was full and binned the extras that I could not finish so that I wouldn’t be tempted later. my stomach must be shrinking.

Supper (22.14)

Crispbreads (x 2) Cottage Cheese, Ham and Salad – 160kcal

 

Drinks with countable Kcalories

Two x Glass of Milk – 200kcal

Worth it 😉

After having that pasta, I’m stuffed. It’s 8pm and I don’t think I’ll need anything else for the night. yay!

About shanhime

Well hello there! Whether you’re a newbie to this blog or a regular in need of a quick reminder on what this blog is about (in summary of course) then I couldn’t recommend a better page. Then again I did write this so I’m somewhat biased…. Well, my name is Shan. It’s not my real or full name but it’s a start and given that we’re on the interwebs it’s hardly a place to start giving out personal information. If you want to get fresh with me you can find my facebook and irratate my there. If you’re really lucky, I might even add you as a friend! But no flirting boys! I have a boyfriend :3 I live in the East of Scotland where is it permenantly freezing. On average we have roughly 4 minutes of sun a year and the chances of me spending a day indoors without exercise is high so don’t expect miracles people. At this moment in time I’m 20 years old. For me, this is a sore point, so mentioning this will result in a severe ignoring or a delete of your comment followed by a smack across the back of the head with a wet mop. Those of you insulted by this should probably leave now as I’m not willing to deal with trolls, gremlins or vampire bats. This is site for mature people looking for information, a litte fun and self help, not people who are fighting with their inner child and losing. That is what xbox live is for. :P Of course, I can have a joke. Sometimes people are just not funny. Unlike me. I am permenantly hilarious. On this blog you’ll find a few tips, the occasional recipe and a few personal thoughts I had on products, foods, snacks and techniques as well as some of my own personal moments. Hopefully some of these will be useful to you and you’ll enjoy sharing these experiences. There’s also the comments sections at the bottom for you to share information and ideas with others and me. Isn’t that great? Oh, my facebook is: http://www.facebook.com/theonlyshanchan
