Avoid These Foods on Empty Stomach

Every individual might have a different opinion regarding what to eat and what not to eat and most of us eat in the way what we feel like. The first thing that we have in the morning is a very important meal of the day on which your whole day depends. But you might not be aware of what food items you should eat and what food you should avoid on an empty stomach.

Here, we have listed some of the food items that may not do good to you if you are having them on an empty stomach.

1. Citrus Fruits

Most of peoples love to have oranges and grapefruits in the morning as they wake up, but do you know they could actually cause the problem to you. These citrus fruits can irritate your lower oesophagus if you eat them on an empty stomach.

2. Bananas

Bananas are everyone’s favourite, but it might surprise a lot of people that they are actually not good if you eat them in the morning. Bananas could cause a sharp increase in the amount of magnesium in your blood which could harm your heart health.

3. Yoghurt

Do you know what happens when you eat yoghurt on an empty stomach? The lactic acid bacteria found in the yoghurt becomes ineffective due to the high acidity of stomach acid. Therefore, when you consume yoghurt in the morning it provides you small benefit only.

4. Pastries

Pastries

via: Well+Good

Though Shortcrust and pastries sound delicious, it can cause a lot of problems to you when you have them on an empty stomach. These foods contain a type of yeast that irritates your stomach lining causing flatulence. Besides this, they also contain lots of processed sugar which can cause your liver to become overloaded.

5. Pears

Grabbing a piece of Pear seems to be a healthy choice but let me tell you it isn’t that healthy as it seems to be. Because having a pear on an empty stomach can injure your mucous membranes due to the presence of high fibre content in them.

6. Cold Carbonated Drinks

Who doesn’t like drinking soda or cold drink? But it isn’t the idle choice to have them in the morning during your breakfast, but most of them have it just because they have lots of caffeine content in them.

But the problem is that when you have carbonated beverages on an empty stomach they can cause damage to your stomach’s mucous membranes leading to indigestion.

7. Spicy food

Undoubtedly, spicy food is tasty but if they are eaten alone on an empty stomach they can cause indigestion. Because they are responsible for triggering the release of gastric acid which further creates the possibility of developing gastric disorders.

8. Sweets

Food items like candy or sweetmeat contain lots of sugar content and they could cause a sudden increase in the insulin levels in the blood. If you keep on consuming them over a long period of time, it might have a bad effect on your pancreas.

9. Tomatoes

You shouldn’t eat tomatoes on an empty stomach, especially if you have a problem related to stomach ulcers. Tomatoes are high in tannic acid which can increase the acid levels in your stomach causing discomfort.

Eat Dhoklas instead of Heavy and Oily Samosas

You must be aware that dhoklas are so healthy and nutritious as compared to Samosas. In spite of snacking on those oily Samosas stuffed with boiled potatoes try having dhoklas when you want to eat something light.

Having dhoklas rather than Samosas will help you reduce your calorie consumption to almost half. Dhoklas are very light, sweet in taste and are a perfect snack to satisfy your appetite in a great way.

2. Eat Roasted Makhanas instead of oily and fried Potato Chips

Makhanas is popularly known for its high fibre content found in it. They are a great alternative to fried and oily Potato chips which is very unhealthy and harmful for your health.

3. Eat Rasgullas instead of Suji Halwa

Eat Rasgullas instead of Suji Halwa

Undoubtedly, Suji halwa is almost everyone’s favourite sweet after Gajar halwa. But do you know that it is so harmful because it is very heavy and it consists of lots of fat and so many calories which are not good for your health? Try eating Rasgullas when you want to satisfy your sweet tooth.

4. Eat Idlis instead of Medu Vadas

Eat Idlis instead of Medu Vadas

Idlis are better when compared to those oily, fried and heavy medu vadas which have more fat and calories. While Idlis are a perfect choice over fried vadas when you want to have something lighter during your snack time. And, yes they are healthy too!

5. Eat Bhelpuri instead of Chaat Papri

Eat Bhelpuri instead of Chaat Papri

Bhelpuris are best known for their tangy and spicy flavour. Instead of trying that unhealthy street food like chaat papri tries to binge on bhelpuris which are more tasty and lighter and yes it is very light and much tastier than chaat papri.

6. Eat Idli Sambhar instead of Aloo Puri

Eat Idli Sambhar instead of Aloo Puri

I know Aloo Puri must be your favourite all-time food but to let you know it is very harmful to your health as puris are prepared after deep frying them.

And, Idli Sambhar is a much lighter and healthier option when you feel hungry and also they are low in calories and higher in protein.

7. Eat Tandoori Chicken instead of Butter Chicken

Eat Tandoori Chicken instead of Butter Chicken

Tandoori chicken is better when compared to that heavy and buttery butter chicken. The main difference between both the chicken dishes is the fat content present in them.

Tandoori chicken is not deep fried so it does not contain any amount of fat. While butter chicken is being prepared using lots of masala and dry spices which is tasty but unhealthy too.
