What you eat early morning decides the course of your day, in simple words it can either make or break your day. Most people in Indian begin their day with a piping hot cup of tea or coffee. For some people their day is simply incomplete without that daily ritual, but have you ever wondered, how it is affecting your body.
Undeniably, to kick start your day, and especially for your mind it works as a relaxant, but as far as the health aspect is concerned, sipping down on coffee or tea can actually lead to bloating, acidity, gastritis and in the long term can lead to liver issues and a few other lifestyle disorders.
Here are a few foods you must avoid eating on an empty stomach
Many people wake up to a hearty cup of coffee and their day seems incomplete without it. This idea is so deep rooted that changing this habit might take eternity, but the sooner, the better. No wonder, it gives you that instant kick to start your day, but at the same time it leads to secretion of hydrochloric acid in the digestive system, which further causes gastritis, bloating and acidity.
There are many people who gorge on leftover delicacies in the morning before heading to a long day of work. The problem here is not with the leftover food rather what can lead to a bad stomach day is the spice content in the food. Eating spicy and rich food early morning can make you feel bloated and can irritate your stomach lining. The presence of too much spice in the first meal of the day can lead to acidity and stomach pain.
Sugary drinks and foods
Many people drink fruit juice on an empty stomach, which overburdens your liver and pancreas with excess fructose. After long hours of rest, the pancreas is active and the more sugar you eat, it overloads your liver. Hence, avoiding sugary foods and drinks in the morning is the key to good health. Moreover, processed foods with sugar should be avoided as they can spike sugar levels instantly and overload the liver.
Eating citrus fruits on an empty stomach can increase the production of acid in the body. Apart from that it can also lead to bloating. The presence of fructose in the citrus fruits can impact your digestion. Avoiding too much of citrus fruits and fibers will leave you feeling full for the entire day.
