    Feasting on fiber-rich foods can push stomach-clogging materials out of the body. Fiber moves food through the gastrointestinal tract quickly for better digestion.
     
    About 25-30 grams of fiber is recommended per day, but most people usually get only 10-12 grams. Incorporate fiber into your diet by including foods like oatmeal, bran flakes, raspberries, lentils, and artichokes into your meals. You can also try fiber supplements that contain psyllium, a soluble fiber that can help regulate digestion and prevent constipation.
