My name is Christine Marquette and I'm a registered and licensed dietitian with Marquette Nutrition and Fitness and I have been asked what foods can I eat to cleanse my colon. The main thing is to make sure that you eat a high fiber diet that keeps you regular. If you ate only foods that had a lot of fat in them, a lot of meats, a lot of cheeses, things that don't have very much fiber. A lot of times you won't have frequent bowel movements. You can actually become constipated. The other thing that can cause constipation is a lack of fluid. If you are not drinking enough water or other beverages that will also cause a problem in your digestive tract in that the food won't have anything as it gets digested to help it move through your digestive tract so as far as foods to eat to cleanse your colon a lot of high fiber foods and a lot of fluids so that would include things such as fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, beans, water. You could use ground flax seed and then also other beverages such as tea, hot tea very often will help stimulate your digestive tract. So including all those foods in your diet on a regular basis will help make sure that you don't get constipated and it will cleanse your colon on a daily basis because you will have regular bowel movements so again the main foods to include in a daily diet to cleanse your colon are going to be your high fiber fruits and vegetables, your whole grains, your beans and then you also need something to make sure that things flow so that would be a lot of plain water and then you can also use tea, hot tea or cold tea either one, the main thing is to make sure that you do have an adequate fluid intake that will help get the high fiber foods moving through your digestive tract.
