Food is an important aspect of our life. It nourishes our body and a person is what he or she consumes. The moment we wake up and become absorbed in our daily activities, we tend to forget the importance of eating nutritious food and eat whatever is available on the go. Surely, that’s not an ideal way to start the day. Food is important the moment you wake up, so never skip on your breakfast and avoid eating the following foods as advised by Varanasi Hospital on an empty stomach as they will do more harm than good.
Take a look at what never to consume when your stomach is empty.
1. Hot caffeinated beverages
We all love our adrak waali chai and it is our favourite guilty pleasure when the sun rises from its horizon. But did you know that tea or coffee inside your empty stomach can cause acidity and bloating due to the courtesy of caffeine in coffee and tannic acid in tea. Also, it affects the metabolism so enjoy your favourite cup of hot beverage after eating something.
2. Spicy foods
Our country is blessed with spices but that does not mean we should savour on them the moment we have brushed our teeth. Eating spicy food or food loaded with chillies is a surefire way to damage the health of your digestive system and result in stomach burn. So, refrain from adding spices and chillies to your beloved kachori-sabzi, and stop asking for achaar.
Many people in our country have a habit of eating laddoos in the morning. It is certainly not a good breakfast option as eating sweets on a vacant stomach raises your blood sugar levels. Tell us, would you really like to start your day by eating something so unhealthy? You surely would rather not, so control your sweet cravings by opting for healthier alternatives.
4. Citrus fruits
Sure, fruits are healthy but there’s a right time for eating anything and early in the morning is not the one. Citrus fruits are acidic so consuming them first thing in the morning should be avoided to never see the face of acidity.
The moment you leave your bed, drink warm water to activate and detoxify your body and mind. Eat soaked nuts, dates (khajur), and soaked black gram (kala chana) when your stomach is empty. Also, come to Varanasi Hospital, the best hospital in Varanasi for health-related consultations.
