Even though your appetite may virtually disappear between your frequent trips to the toilet, drink a lot of water in your stomach, and stock up on meals that will make your stool firm, reduce diarrhoea and restore regular bowel function.

One of the healthiest foods available today is the potato. is sweet potatoes especially when you have diarrhoea.

However, be careful not to fry the potatoes; instead, boil them and eat them without anything else. That shouldn't be too difficult since they are already so sweet.

Whole wheat bread contains insoluble fibre, which might stimulate digestion and make diarrhoea worse. It is much better to eat white flour-based bread.

One of the safest bets when purging is white rice. Don't add stew or any other type of vegetables to it, just eat it as it is.

You need to drink a lot of water when purging because it keeps the body hydrated. Dehydration from diarrhoea can be harmful because you are losing a lot of vital nutrients like vitamins. Also, drinking coconut water will help you restore strength and nutrients.

Oatmeal is incredibly nutritious and offers numerous health advantages. Oatmeal contains soluble fibre, which helps to firm up stools by absorbing water in the gastrointestinal tract. Eat it plainly and don’t add any additives.
