If you eat fruits right after your meal the fruits will not be able to reach your intestines due to the food you’ve already eaten.
If they stay in your stomach then they will begin to spoil and cause the food you’ve just eaten to be spoilt as well.
That’s why it is best to wait for an hour before you eat any fruit, or eat them before your meal.
But the most suitable way would be to eat fruits on an empty stomach in the morning so your body can properly digest them and use the energy they provide throughout your day.
You shouldn’t loosen your belt after your meal
There’s a lot of dogma regarding this rule. Most people think that loosening your belt will cause your bowels to twist and turn, but, the real reason why you shouldn’t do this is entirely different.
The reason is that if you are loosening your belt then you have probably eaten a lot of food, which is inherently bad for you. If you loosen your belt, you will feel free to continue indulging in your meal, which is definitely not a good thing. That’s why you should never loosen your belt, so it can remind you of how much food is enough for you.
You shouldn’t smoke right after your meal
Smoking right after you have eaten is a definite no-no! Studies show that when you smoke after you eat it has the same effect as smoking 10 cigarettes, which is never a good thing.
You shouldn’t drink tea after your meal
Tea leaves are full of acids that can make the proteins you consume to be hardened and very difficult to digest. That’s why it is better to drink tea at least an hour before you eat.
You shouldn’t go for a walk after your meal
Going for a walk right after you have eaten will cause acid reflux in your stomach, and only make your digestion more difficult. That’s why if you are planning on taking a walk after your meal, you should at least wait for 30 minutes before you do so. Furthermore, if your reason for taking a walk is to burn some calories, you should know that the most effective way to do it is to walk after you have done some physical exercise.
You shouldn’t take a nap after your meal
Taking a nap after you have eaten will only cause difficulties in your digestion, which might cause other gastric problems and intestine infections.
You shouldn’t take a bath after your meal
After you take a bath the blood circulation in your hands, feet and upper torso will increase, while the circulation in your stomach area decreases, resulting in weaker digestion. That’s why baths are best taken 1-2 hours after meals, or before them.
