Did you know that your colon can store up to 65 pounds of waste? Some of the excess weight that you are holding includes the by-products from artificial "foods", debris from the catabolism process (cell breakdown), and the weighty contents of your colon. As such, eat natural, whole foods and keep your colon as clean as possible. Drink plenty of good quality water and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables to obtain enough fiber. Chia seeds and milled flax seeds are beneficial in this regard as well. Get moving to keep the waste moving. Consider a daily 20 minute brisk walk and reap many benefits.
