The experts warn that many people do these 5 things (immediately after eating) every day and they can be very dangerous for your health – especially #4.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is very important for you to remember – going to sleep right after eating will cause your stomach to burn through the night, which will cause discomfort, bloating, and odd sleeping patterns. A recent study has discovered that people who waited the longest after eating to go to bed were less likely to have a stroke. This means that you shouldn’t eat at least a few hours before bed.
Smoking is probably one of the most damaging things you can do to your lungs. BUT, if you’re still going to do it, you should wait at least 1-2 hours after eating. How this works – this is because the nicotine in cigarettes binds to the excess oxygen that is necessary in digestion, which then allows your body to absorbs more carcinogens than normal. A recent study has revealed that smoking right after a meal is the same as smoking ten cigarettes at once. It also increases the risk of bowel and lung cancer.
Here’s what you need to know – when we shower, our bodies increase blood flow to reach your hands, legs, and body, which then decreases the amount of blood flow to your stomach. Well, this weakens the digestive system, causing it to become inefficient, which can cause stomach pains.
- Eat Fruit
According to the experts, the best time to eat fruit is on an empty stomach. Why? Well, this is because fruits require different enzymes to digest, and the simple sugars in fruit need time to be absorbed completely by the body. And, when you have nothing in your stomach, you’ll benefit from all the nutrients, fiber, and simple sugars. But, if you consume fruit right after a meal, the fruit will remain in the stomach for an extended period. This can cause indigestion, heartburn, burping, and other discomforts.
- Drink Tea
You shouldn’t drink tea, because drinking eat right after a meal interferes with iron absorption. How this works – well, the tannic acid in the tea binds with protein and iron in our food, preventing our bodies from reaping the benefits of digesting them. This results in an 87% decrease in iron absorption! And, low levels of iron can trigger anemia, a deficiency of red blood cells in the blood, which then causes extreme fatigue, weakness, pale skin, chest pain, dizziness, cold hands and feet, brittle nails, and poor appetite.
