Including chewing gum.. Things that should not be done on an empty stomach • Al Marsad Newspaper

Al Marsad Newspaper: Starting your day in a healthy way will help you stay active throughout the day. From a healthy breakfast to exercising, you can take a number of steps every morning to boost your overall health. It is important to choose the right foods when you wake up in the morning so that you do not have digestive problems later in the day.

Nutritionist Pooja Makhija shared a video on Instagram to explain things you should not do on an empty stomach, according to Sputnik.

1. Caffeine

Many start their day with a cup of coffee or tea. “Think twice about making it the first thing you consume on an empty stomach. Drinking coffee on an empty stomach leads to acidity, which stimulates the secretion of hydrochloric acid,” says Makhija.

2. Chewing gum

Chewing gum on an empty stomach is not a healthy practice because when you chew gum, your digestive system produces more acid. Since there is no food in the stomach, this acid can affect the lining of your stomach, increasing the risk of stomach ulcers.

3. Shopping

“Two studies conducted by the Cornell University research team indicate that people who go shopping on an empty stomach not only shop more than necessary, but also tend to buy more high-calorie foods and more junk food,” Makhija explains.

4. Argument

If you feel angry early in the morning, blame your hunger pangs as this may be due to anger caused by hunger.

“Next time you have a fight, you may want to eat something first before discussing anything else,” Mukheija says. “Studies have also shown that when you are hungry, your blood sugar levels drop. In such situations, having a snack can help combat anger.”
