What not to eat for breakfastBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/what-not-to-eat-for-breakfast1
In order to be healthy and prevent the development of many diseases, you should refrain from eating certain foods on an empty stomach. Some of them cause irritation of the gastric mucosa, others disrupt the acid-base balance, and others contribute to the development of diseases such as diabetes mellitus and gastritis. We suggest you find out what these products are in order to be always on the alert.
Oranges, tangerines and lemons eaten on an empty stomach can provoke allergies and contribute to the development of gastritis. Therefore, before drinking a glass of citrus fresh, it is recommended to have a hearty breakfast of oatmeal.
Bananas were included in this list because they contain a lot of magnesium, which can affect the activity of the cardiovascular system. Uncontrolled consumption of this fruit on an empty stomach is fraught with risks of violation of the calcium-magnesium balance.
Raw vegetables contain acids that irritate the gastric mucosa in a matter of seconds. Therefore, tomatoes, cucumbers or cabbage eaten on an empty stomach in the morning can bring a lot of problems to people with poor digestion. Tomatoes, in turn, due to the high content of pectin and tannic acid contribute to the formation of gastric stone. The same, by the way, applies to pears and persimmons.
It may seem strange that yogurt was on this list, because how many advertisements say that there is nothing more useful than a jar of delicious yogurt for breakfast. However, you can argue with this. In the morning, the body does not need the help of yogurt bacteria, it copes quite well without them. Therefore, the benefit of a product eaten on an empty stomach is zero. It is better to have a snack with yogurt 2-3 hours after breakfast or eat it for dinner.
In general, yogurt and other dairy products are not so much harmful in the morning as useless, because the main value of these products lies in the beneficial microflora, namely lactic acid bacteria. When eating yogurt or kefir on an empty stomach, the bacteria contained in the product immediately enter an aggressive acidic environment and instantly die, even before reaching the intestines. Therefore, there is no point in drinking fermented milk products on an empty stomach.
This product, eaten on an empty stomach, can cause heaviness in the stomach and bloating, exactly those that are mentioned in advertisements for enzymatic drugs.
They say that it is useful to drink a glass of water in the morning on an empty stomach. But it should not be ice water from the refrigerator, as it is not able to properly start the digestive process at the beginning of the day. It is better to replace a cold drink with barely warm, at room temperature. The very process of taking water in the morning "warms up" the gastrointestinal tract before breakfast, and cold drinks can cause irritation of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines.
In addition, in the presence of chronic diseases of the digestive tract, cold drinks drunk on an empty stomach can cause an exacerbation of the disease. Also, cold liquid leads to narrowing of the vessels of the stomach, which worsens local blood circulation and the process of digestion of food. Interestingly, cold drinks drunk in the morning on an empty stomach can provoke menstrual cycle failures in women.
Sweets are harmful in themselves, and even more so on an empty stomach. This is due to the fact that immediately after waking up, the pancreas is not able to produce the proper amount of insulin, which is fraught with an increase in blood sugar and as a result - the occurrence of eye diseases and the development of diabetes. A large dose of sugar that got into the stomach in the morning makes the pancreas work hard, and a long craze for sweet breakfasts puts the pancreas out of order.
Many people cannot imagine their morning without a cup of coffee, and some will not even sit down for breakfast if they do not drink a black invigorating drink before that. However, it is worth taking care of your health and giving up this habit, since morning coffee on an empty stomach irritates the mucous membrane, increases the secretion of gastric juice and contributes to the development of gastritis. If your breakfast consists of one coffee, be prepared for the fact that bitterness, which has choleretic properties and provokes a useless discharge of bile, can make you suffer from pain in the morning.
This is a rather heavy product, especially in the morning, when the body, without gaining energy, is not yet able to cope with so much protein. Therefore, it is better to postpone the use of complex animal proteins for lunch.
Although advertisements say about the benefits of a morning breakfast of sweet flakes for the health of the body and a slim figure, in fact, these products do not bring any glorified benefits. On the contrary, being a rich source of carbohydrates, fast breakfasts dramatically increase blood sugar levels, as a result of which at lunch you will be tormented by "wolfish" hunger, which can lead to overeating. The result is an increase in weight. So don't believe the ads and eat only healthy and healthy food.
The composition of sausage and ham includes many harmful components, some of which are the most harmful carcinogenic substances that provoke the formation and development of cancer cells. Such sandwiches are especially harmful in the morning on an empty stomach, when a poorly protected empty stomach is simply not ready for such a chemical attack.
It is better not to have breakfast with dishes seasoned with garlic. Garlic contains the substance allicin, which irritates the walls of the gallbladder and stomach. As a result, their motor activity is disrupted, and gastrospasm may also occur.
