Keeping Your Stomach Well On Your Travels!

As many of you may know I will be working from Mumbai, India
for the next 12 weeks as I transform an actor – worry not, this will have
absolutely no effect on the great content flowing through FitMag every day. Actually
it will – it will make it even better because we can gain insight from new
areas of the globe. However, in preparation for my trip to Mumbai I have been constantly
warned of the infamous ‘’Delhi Belly’’ which basically means food will travel
through you at the speed of a well-greased bullet. This is partly due to the
fact there are more bad bacteria’s in the water and sometimes in the food. Here

This may sound crazy, I mean after all fibre is great for
the health of our digestive system right? Of course it is, however when your
stomach is in a more ‘’vulnerable’’ position shall we say too much fibre will
just antagonise the situation. Have you ever eaten too many berries or
pineapple and found that your stomach begins to throw summersaults? This is why;
the fibre is allowing food to travel straight through you which isn’t ideal if
you are at risk of an upset stomach as it is.
