How can I avoid diarrhea?

My husband and I are new to nutriblasts.  My digestive system is not as finicky as his.  We both have been blasting for a week now.  Is there anything he can put into his nutriblast that will target this problem so he can really enjoy the health benefits without having to go to the rest room all the time?  We understand a detox is expected but this has been going on every day. When will his body adjust to this new influx of super rich nutrition?

We would appreciate any feed back you can give us. Thank you.

Dietitian's Answer

For diarrhea, soluble fiber would be best to focus on vs. insoluble fiber. This will help slow the movement of foods through the digestive tract.

Furthermore, the timing of fiber intake can play a role in managing symptoms. For people prone to urgent, loose bowels in the morning specifically, limiting insoluble-rich foods like salads at dinner and including a soluble-rich veggie (squash, skinless sweet potato), cooked grain (rice, pearled barley, quinoa) and/or soluble fiber supplement (Citrucel, Benefiber) can help smoothe out choppy morning bowel patterns.

If symptoms tend to occur in the afternoon or evening, having a super-soluble breakfast (like oatmeal, chia seeds and banana) can help keep things flowing smoothly later on in the day.
