How and WHY do I forget the GOLDEN RULE?

Friday, January 22, 2021



lawrd it was another constipation day... like really? yessss lawrd for 2 days emoticon



I drink a LOT of water
the GREAT THING and POSTIVE thing about tracking food intake is I can go back like two or three days to find out WHAT have I been eating and what I have NOT been eating.
I ate a LOT of bread, ham, cheese and soup for a few days. soup and sandwich

notice: No natural fiber in my meals.

emoticon Bright side = tracked EVERYTHING that touched my lips and stayed within range

emoticon NOT good side = did not eat one piece of fruit or veggie.... I was in soup and sandwich mode for a few days.

Lesson learned.... Although bread has 3 grams of fiber PER slice and I ate a LOT of bread recently.... emoticon I think it is also BEST to get some FIBER from Fruits and veggies Also *** Yep I forgot the golden RULE...

emoticon GOLDEN RULE = INCLUDE FRUITS AND VEGGIES In your daily diet.



In the meantime: I did the powdered laxative, enema and stool softener pills today and relief after two days occurred. thank goodness.

Bright Side = My son brought home a bag of apples today for me due to my condition emoticon



emoticon Eating an apple that I sliced... right now at 2:30pm emoticon
update: ate 2 apples this afternoon and yes it was VERY FILLING indeed and sweet yeh!

Here is my dinner... with NO meat.... took a break from meat as I set to clear OUT my intestines emoticon

1/2 cup of seasoned black beans
1/2 cup of Bob Evans mashed potatoes
1 cup of brocolli frozen
1 apple



this meal was SOOOO filling I could only eat HALF... will eat the other half for a snack later if I dont fall asleep.... LOL





Why apple a day keeps doctor away emoticon
Apples have also been linked to several other health benefits that could help keep the doctor away: Support weight loss. Due to their fiber content, apples have been shown to promote feelings of fullness, decrease calorie intake, and increase weight loss

Apple nutrition facts
Here are the nutrition facts for one raw, unpeeled, medium-sized apple (100 grams):

Calories: 52
Water: 86%
Protein: 0.3 grams
Carbs: 13.8 grams
Sugar: 10.4 grams

Carbs in apples
Apples are mainly composed of carbs and water. They’re rich in simple sugars, such as fructose, sucrose, and glucose.

Despite their high carb and sugar contents, their glycemic index (GI) is low, ranging 29–44 (5).

The GI is a measure of how food affects the rise in blood sugar levels after eating. Low values are associated with various health benefits (6Trusted Source).

Due to their high fiber and polyphenol counts, fruits often have a low GI score (7Trusted Source).

Fiber
Apples are very rich in fiber. A single medium-sized apple (100 grams) contains about 4 grams of this nutrient, which is 17% of the Daily Value (DV).

A portion of their fiber comes from insoluble and soluble fibers called pectin. Soluble fiber is associated with numerous health benefits, partly because it feeds the friendly bacteria in your gut (8, 9, 10Trusted Source).

Fiber may also help improve fullness and cause weight loss while lowering blood sugar levels and boosting digestive function (11).

SUMMARY
Apples are mainly made up of carbs and water. They also contain fiber, which moderates blood sugar levels and promotes gut health.
