Raisins help me digest? hack this

by 322 · June 15, 2012 at 03:22 PM

Ok so a bit of background: Been eating paleo/phd style for 5 months and my digestion has improved but still not fully recovered. Generally my digestion is slow, for example if i stop eating at 8pm i still have a full stomach at 11pm. Lately I tried eating a handful or raisins after my meals and it seems to be speeding up my digestion and its quite noticable. What could be the reason for this? btw i eat about 100-150g of carbs total mostly from sweet potato and rice, not counting veggies. If i eat more starch it doesn't have the same effect as eating raisins on my digestion. Also chewing food is much easier now because i produce more saliva. So for some reason raisins have a really positive effect on my digestion but I'm trying to figure out how..

I have no weight problems btw and I would say pretty good insulin sensitivity.

8pm-11pm seems pretty normal to me. Unless you ate 1 blueberry.

The raisins aren't speeding up the digestion, they are speeding up the movement of food through your tract. Could be good, also, could be bad.
