Consume 64 ounces of sodium-free liquid.

Eat 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed 1.

Flax is an excellent form of soluble and insoluble fiber. The soluble fiber binds with fat, preventing absorption, and insoluble fiber moves bulk through the intestines. Ground flaxseed is simpler to eat than flaxseeds, and is more productive than flax oil. You can mix the daily amount of flax with honey. Spread it on toast, instead of butter. Or you can add it to a salad, soup or vegetables.
