Things you Should Never Do Immediately After Eating


Eating lunch

Many times in our life we do some things & don't know that they are dangerous for us. Many people have developed very bad and unhealthy after-meal habits, and one of the most difficult things for anyone to do is to change a habit. Most people have come to accept some of these dangerous habits as normal because its consequences are slow in coming.

They include:

DO NOT SMOKE AFTER EATING: Every smoker immediately after eating light a cigarette but studies have shown that the cigarette which is lit at that moment is equal like we had smoked 10 cigarettes. You increase the chances of getting cancer.

DO NOT TAKE SHOWER AFTER EATING: Taking a shower after eating increases blood flow to the arms & legs & in that way you are reducing the amount of blood in the stomach. therefore you will worse digest food.

DO NOT EAT FRUITS AFTER EATING: If after meals, you eat fruit your stomach will be filled with air & you will feel like a balloon.

DO NOT SLEEP AFTER EATING: If you consume food & right after that you go to sleep you can get an infection in the intestines.

DO NOT WALK AROUND: By walking you disturb the digestive system in absorbing nutrients from the food that had entered into the body. You should walk but after a half hour after eating.

AVOID COLD WATER AFTER A MEAL: The reason is very simple: Ice water does not let the food digest properly because it causes clumping of food. Hot/warm water helps absorb nutrients better.

AVOID TEA AND COFFEE: Tea/coffee also has high acidic content which will cause the protein in the food to be hardened and so, difficult to digest. So, for “tea addicts,” drink your tea at least an hour after the meal.

NEVER DANCE AFTER MEAL: Moving or dancing too much after your meal will make it tough to absorb the nutrients in the intestine. You may even throw up or suffer a stomach upset or puffiness.

KEEP OFF THE GYM AFTER A MEAL: It will be utter foolishness to hit the gym immediately after a meal as that will be counterproductive to the body.

But no matter how enjoyable and mentally satisfying these habits may seem, they harm our body and hence should be avoided. Plus, if you want to improve your health and avoid unnecessary fat (obesity), try to wait at least half an hour to one hour before you do these things mentioned above after a meal.
