Nutritionist Kate Arnold says:
“It's awful when you become unwell on holiday or something happens to spoil it - you don't want anything to get in the way of your precious time off. Unfortunately, digestive problems like diarrhoea or constipation are common due to the change in your routine. Spending more time sitting in a car, or on a plane or by the pool and eating different foods at odd times can cause problems and really affect how you feel. Luckily there are many ways to prevent these problems. Sneak in a daily walk or swim to keep the gut moving. Eat and go to the toilet at regular times and ensure you are eating lots of fibre like wholegrains, nuts and vegetables.”
Kate Arnold does not endorse Dulcolax or any other medicine.
** The survey of 1,000 UK women, of whom 500 have experienced constipation, was conducted by Censuswide between 9/3/16-10/3/16.
