Some habits develop by ourselves. And among them there are those whoDo not practice at this or that time of the day.
And today we want to tell you about what thingsshould not be done on an empty stomach. Take a note and try to avoid these activities.
1. Do not take anti-inflammatory drugs
Take certain types of medicineon an empty stomachNot recommended. They are just different anti-inflammatory drugs.
Such drugs as aspirin, paracetamol and other drugs with similar characteristicsshould not be taken on an empty stomach.
- The reason why this should not be done in reducing the effectiveness of active substances, as well as in serious health risks: gastric bleeding may develop.
- Milk can reduce the negative effects of taking these medicines, so you can safely drink milk with pills, unless, of course, you have lactose intolerance. And so it is possible and traditionally - to drink water.
2. Do not drink coffee
Coffee - the first thing you drink, barely getting out of bed? I must say that this is not the best scenario for starting the day, since coffee (even if it is without caffeine) stimulates the production of acids.
And if you drink a cup of coffee on an empty stomach, it can cause heartburn and other disorders in the digestive system..
Moreover, if after this cup of coffee you still do not have breakfast normally (because you are in a hurry, etc.), you are at risksurvive and the consequences of a deficiency of serotonin in the body- a bad mood for the rest of the day.
- If it is very hard for you to give up drinking coffee since morning, then at least add some milk or cream to it. Thanks to the fat contained in them, you can reduce the negative effects of coffee on your empty stomach.
- In addition, it is very important to drink natural coffee, and not lyophilized (soluble).
3. Do not drink alcohol
Alcohol can produce a truly "explosive effect" on your empty stomach. The fact is that the absorption of alcohol in the tissues of the body is increased by 2 times when administered on an empty stomach. This is comparable with the introduction of alcohol intravenously.
If you drink an alcoholic drink on an empty stomach, then it will be removed from the body much more slowly, and also cause a strong hangover. In addition, it will negatively affect the condition of your liver, heart and kidneys.
If, for some reason, drinking alcoholic beverages is inevitable in the morning, try at least prefer non-carbonated, in that they are usually served cold and are absorbed more slowly blood..
4. Do not Chew Gum
Chewing gum on an empty stomach is also not a good idea for your stomach, because hydrochloric acid, which It is produced during chewing, it negatively affects the mucous membrane, which ultimately can lead to gastritis.
If you really want to chew gum, choose one that includes natural sweeteners, such as xylitol or sorbitol, rather than sugar, cyclamate and aspartame.
But anyway,chew gum for longer than 10 minutes, not worth it.It's harmful, even if you just ate a good meal.
5. Do not exercise
If you just woke up and have not had breakfast yet, you should not exhaust yourself with intensive training. This will only lead to the fact thatyou will lose your muscle mass.
In addition, it will be very hard for you, because in the morning your body simply does not have enough energy for a full training.
On an empty stomach you can perform only aerobic exercises.
But if you have any problems with the health of the digestive system, it is better to eat something, since any physical activity stimulates the production of gastric juice, and for an empty stomach this, as you know, is bad.
6. Do not go for food
When you are hungry, it is better not to go shopping in the grocery store. End up with the fact that you buy a lot of extra. So thatsince morning on an empty stomach - it is excluded.
It has already been proved that the feeling of hunger makes us buy much more than we really need. In order to avoid such mistakes, always try to go for food well-fed, or even betterwith a pre-compiled list of necessary purchases.
So you will save a significant amount of money.
Another trick is to pay with cash, not a card: you perceive your expenses more realistically, literally, counting bills and coins.
