7 Dont's After a Meal

Sunday, November 22, 2009

1. Don't smoke- Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher).

I don't smoke and i'm underage to smoking.

2. Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.

I always thought fruits are a dessert to meals and can be taken right after meals.

3. Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

I don't drink tea but i drink coffee.

4. Don't loosen your belt - Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted & blocked.

I didn't know that after meals cannot loosen belt.

5. Don't bathe - Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

Cannot bath after eating? I didn't know that.

6. Don't walk about - People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

This is something i always do especially when i eat outside. Even at home too, after i finish eating, i will just stand up and walk off from the dining table. I've always thought that we should walk after eating.

7. Don't sleep immediately - The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

I know about this but i always do it, especially when i stay up till past midnight because i will tend to get hungry after midnight and i will go eat something then go to bed.
