We talk a lot about what to eat. But we haven’t really talked much about what to do or not do after eating! Today we are going to change that with a list 7 things not to do after dinner.
There is a lot more to nutrition and health than simply eating quality foods. There are certain laws and principles that apply and work in our bodies that then determine how and if that food is properly used. These 7 things not to do after dinner speak directly to that process!
So without further ado, here is your lis.
You shouldn’t be smoking anyway…juss sayin! But if you do, after dinner is most definitely not the time. Why? Studies show that the cigarette smoked after a meal is like smoking 10 causing your risk of cancer to soar!
Don’t Eat Fruit
Eating fruit after dinner causes bloating. And that, my friends, means systems are not working as they should! Besides the noxious emissions that may ultimately result, it is just evidence of an upset digestive system and that taxes the body.
Don’t Drink Tea
Tea leaves contain a high content of acid and that acid causes the protein in the food we consume to harden and become even more difficult to digest.
Don’t Loosen Your Belt
First of all you shouldn’t eat so much that you need to. That is the first step. But should you overindulge, the scientific truth is that loosening your belt can easily cause your intestines to twist and become blocked! You don’t want to go there now do ya?
Don’t Take a Bath
Bathing increase the blood flow to the hands, legs, and other extremities thus reducing the amount flowing to the stomach. This weakens your digestive function.
Don’t Go for a Walk
You think I’ve gone and lost my mind don’t you? Well, I may have but it is science. Studies have proven that taking a walk immediately after a meal prevents the digestive system from absorbing all the nutrients by diverting resources. Give it half an hour then hit the streets!
Don’t Sleep Immediately
For starters, food is fuel. Eating it and then resting only makes the body store it for later use but then you do the same routine over and over so all you do is store and never use the reserves. That means weight gain. Plus, this habit leads to poor digestion and the potential of gastric disorders and intestinal infections!
As I mentioned in the intro, there is more to good health than just eating whole foods. If they do not digest properly, if you divert the resources and block assimilation or reserve instead of apply the nutrients as intended by nature, then your health will remain shaky at best. So take these 7 things not to do after dinner to heart. Apply them to your lifestyle of wellness and see how they can play a positive role in your health!
