If you are the kind of person who likes doing anything after taking full meals then this list should be a concern to you. Not everything you do immediately after taking your meals is healthy. Below are somethings you should stop doing;
Smoking is generally unhealthy whether after meals or any time. Smoking immediately after meals has been linked to irritable bowel syndrome and is also believed to cause ulcerative colitis.
2. Don’t Work Out
The body needs a little time to digest food before you can start working out. Engaging in workouts immediately after meals disrupt the digestive process and can cause vomiting or stomach puffiness.
3. Don’t Go to Sleep Directly
Laying down to sleep immediately after meals cause a lot of pressure to the diaphragm and can cause sleep apnea or strange snoring. Additionally, stomach acids may flow back into the oesophagus burning its inner layer.
4. Don’t Drink Cold Water
Drinking very cold water is regarded as unhealthy for digestion. When you take very cold water immediately after meals, it causes food to clump together making it hard for digestion to take place. Warm water is recommended.
5. Eating Fruits Immediately After Meals
This is not dangerous at all but the point is, fruits are better digested on an empty or slightly full stomach. When you eat fruits on an already filled up stomach, you hardly get the essential nutrients therein.
