7 dont's after a meal

7 dont's after a meal

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

* 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.

* 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.

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

* 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.

* 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.

* 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 think some are ok- but all these things not to do- how important are they really? I don't think anyone in hospital with a twisted bowel can seriously blame it on loosening there belt too soon after dinner.

And smoking.. shouldn't it be don't smoke at all?

And does it count for breakfast? And for how long... or can I never drink tea again. I thought the antioxidants in tea aided digestion....

I am with Bafana I just wanna do what I wanna do....

OK, ok, ok. Let's get some of these old "wive's tales" out of the way shall we? Not sure who the "experts" are who say that you shouldn't smoke, but I doubt they hold a PHd in any discipline. Katem was right with not smoking at all.

Should we also add no swimming for a half-hour after eating as well?

Truth is, the majority of these myths have been debunked, especially the one about not eating before bed.
