Diet Information

Diet InfoYour gastrointestinal tract digests foods, absorbs nutrients and water, and removes waste from your body. Many gastrointestinal problems are caused by unhealthy lifestyle and diet.

Exercise and a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and unprocessed whole grains is essential for good health. Choose fat-free or low-fat dairy products and eat lean meats, poultry and fish. Avoid cholesterol, salt and sugar, and try to eliminate processed foods that contain saturated fats and trans fats. Above all, drink at least 24 ounces of water everyday to keep your intestinal tract hydrated and healthy.

For detailed information on food groups and eating correctly, please visit the USDA Food Pyramid website.
