After having a dinner, many people tend to lie right down and watch a movie or just chill. Therefore if you are one of those that have this terrible habit, you should know that this may have a negative effect on your quality of life.
There are some things that you’re not supposed to do after having a dinner or lunch.
Here we have 5 of these:
In the event that you go to bed just after having a meal, you have higher chances of experiencing bloating, discomfort as well as other sleeping patterns because this will cause your stomach to burn off during the night.
According to research conducted by the University of Ioannina Medical School, those who tend to wait for a longer time of time to retire for the night after having dinner had less threat of experiencing a stroke. So, we recommend you not to eat at least a few hours before you go to bed.
If you are a smoker, it is very important to attend a couple of hours after having a meal them smoke a cigarette. Cigarettes contain nicotine which could bind to the extra oxygen needed for digestion, hence allowing our body to absorb more carcinogens than usual.
Some studies proved that smoking immediately after having a meal is almost the exact same to smoking 10 cigarettes at once. Furthermore, this can put you at higher danger of developing a bowel and lung cancer.
3. Eat Fruit
Experts recommend that we should digest good fresh fruit before meals, on an empty stomach. This is due to the fact that fruits require different enzymes in order to consume. Also, it contains sugars that need more time for them to be completely absorbed.
Furthermore, you can get the most benefits of all the nutritional elements, fiber, and other sugar by consuming the fresh fruit when your stomach is empty while eating fruit after a meal can cause burping, indigestion, and heartburn.
Having a shower right after having a meal can boost the blood flow in the hands and legs, which in turn reduces the blood flow in the stomach. This will weaken your digestive system and cause stomach pain.
5. Drink Tea
Make sure not to drink tea right after having a dinner as it can interfere with the iron absorption. The tea has a tannic acid in its content which can bind with protein and iron in our food.
Many studies proved that in most cases this cause 87% decrease in absorption of iron. Lack of iron can cause anemia, ergo causing poor appetite, cold feet and hands, weakness, dizziness, extreme fatigue, and pale skin.
As you can see, there are certain items that you are not supposed to do right after having dinner. Also, it is very important to pay for attention to the time and leave some space between lying down, drinking tea, or eating good fresh fruit!
