Many of the eating habits we indulge ourselves in are absolutely dangerous!

While many of them cause more harm than good, we often feel that, because we enjoy these habits, they are healthy. Here are five things you must not do just after a full meal.

1. Don’t Sleep!

Have you ever tried sleeping immediately after a major meal? When you woke up, how did you feel? I’m sure you woke up still feeling full from the meal. This is because the meal has not been digested at all. This can affect your intestines in a bad way. Also, a nap immediately after a meal is also not relaxing.

2. Don’t Smoke!

Experiments from experts show that smoking a cigarette after meal is equivalent to smoking ten cigarettes at other times, increasing the risk of cancer. In any case, smoking is harmful to your body and you should not smoke at any time.

3. Don’t Bath!

Bathing or showering after a major meal will cause an increased blood flow to the hands, legs and body, and the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This could weaken the digestive system in our stomach. Bathing after a meal delays digestion. The blood around the stomach flows to other parts of the body during a shower instead of helping with digestion.

4. Don’t Eat Fruit!

Different foods digest at different speeds. If you must eat fruit, eat it first as it is the easiest to digest. Fruit should be eaten an hour before a meal or two hours after a meal. Fruit will not be digested properly if you eat it directly after a meal. If you eat fruit just after a full meal, this can cause the stomach to be bloated with air.

5. Don’t drink tea.

Tea leaves are acidic and will affect the digestion process. If you consume protein in the meal, the acid from the tea will harden the protein content, making it difficult to digest. Drinking tea immediately after a meal will also interfere with iron absorption by the body. Avoid tea one hour before and after meals.

These 5 points listed above are some of the commonest mistakes people make immediately after eating. Remember, health is wealth, therefore, you need to take great care of yourself!

  1. Dont take much water while eating because it may over dilute d enzyme concentration eg ptyalin for starch.Drink plenty of water 90 minutes after each meal and of course 90 mins too before each meal…You need at least 2 litres of water daily.starting upon waking up.The body is mostly water and d brain too cant work well without it.Next u need the best digestant fruits to digest ur meal and they are pineapple with enzyme bromelin and if ur body chemistry does not tolerate it then go for pawpaw with enzyme papain.These fruits must never be grown with chemical fertilizer or else u are in for a different kettle of fish.Elderly people too cannot digest well and so also need these fruits after meals
