Oprah’s buddy Dr Oz is a pretty sharp guy. Yesterday AOL ran Dr. Oz’s 25 Greatest Health Tips and they are in fact, great. Although geared to men most make sense for everyone. The one that caught my eye was #4 which OZ called Admiring Your Work. I really think it would have been poetic justice if this was actually tip #2. Oz states

This happens to me when I travel, so I fiber-load before a trip to avoid getting irritable.

I know people don’t like to talk about feces but, this is really good advice. Checking the toilet bowl for the above as well as looking at urine color can tell you a lot about the status of your body. I remember hearing an old Paul Chek audio and thinking the same thing. Great advice. So, the next time you are going #2 stop and do #4. If you don’t meet the standard, go back and take a look at this post. Maybe you ned a little Sugar Free Orange Metamucil.
