"To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art."
– La Rochefoucauld
Overeating Leads to Constipation
If you think about it, this is likely the time of year you struggle with constipation than any other time. Have you ever considered why this is? If you are like most people you have a small breakfast, a sensible lunch and dinner and that’s about it. There may be a couple of snacks here or there, but nothing too major. Then comes the holidays and instead of eating those same three smaller meals and a few snacks we are eating much bigger meals. It seems when we go to a friend’s house, or go out with visiting family members we eat much more than we would the rest of the time. This can really take a dramatic toll on your body and leads to your need for constipation relief.
Your body has a long process of digesting food and eliminating it as waste. It of course goes into your stomach then through two levels of intestines before ending up in your colon where it can finally be removed from the body. However, when you overeat your body can’t keep up with the digestion and decomposing of the food. As a result, the gastro-intestinal tract is over stimulated from gas distention, fecal accumulation and the toxin poisoning.
In addition to constipation, you may have symptoms that do not appear to be connected. You may experience bloating or flu-like symptoms as buildup progresses. Many people are constipated are not aware because the symptoms are so gradual. For example, a decrease in energy and vitality will occur over time. However, once the toxins are removed from the body the energy and vitality will return.

A sweet, tangy and salty mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar and honey does double-duty as marinade and sauce. Toasted sesame seeds provide a nutty and attractive accent. Make it a meal: Serve with brown rice and sautéed red peppers and zucchini slices.
Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon
- Whisk scallion, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and ginger in a medium bowl until the honey is dissolved. Place salmon in a sealable plastic bag, add 3 tablespoons of the sauce and refrigerate; let marinate for 15 minutes. Reserve the remaining sauce.
- Preheat broiler. Line a small baking pan with foil and coat with cooking spray.
- Transfer the salmon to the pan, skinned-side down. (Discard the marinade.) Broil the salmon 4 to 6 inches from the heat source until cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes. Drizzle with the reserved sauce and garnish with sesame seeds.
4 Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Diet
- Eat enough calories but not too many. Maintain a balance between your calorie intake and calorie expenditure—that is, don’t eat more food than your body uses. The average recommended daily allowance is 2,000 calories, but this depends on your age, sex, height, weight, and physical activity.
- Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes—foods high in complex carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, low in fat, and free of cholesterol. Try to get fresh, local produce
- Keep portions moderate, especially high-calorie foods. In recent years serving sizes have ballooned, particularly in restaurants. Choose a starter instead of an entrée, split a dish with a friend, and don’t order supersized anything.
- Limit sugary foods, salt, and refined-grain products. Sugar is added to a vast array of foods. In a year, just one daily 12-ounce can of soda (160 calories) can increase your weight by 16 pounds. See suggestions below for limiting salt and substituting whole grains for refined grains.
