We all eat on an empty stomach. It’s a revolution down there when you are hungry.
Remember that it’s important what foods you consume. Whether it’s full of nutrients or just with carbs and fat.
Eating what’s right will lower the concern of endangering your health and suffering a disease.
The goal of being healthy is not just eating food that’s good for you and hope for the best.
It’s more like a lifestyle. You need to follow every change in your body. Being the master of your temple (body) is figuring out how to get enough of every food you eat.
My husband calls it “knowing what your body needs every time.”
Absorbing exactly those nutrients your body needs at the moment is the goal you would want to achieve in the upcoming period.
I’ll give you a month. Is that enough?
Here is a little help. I’m going to tell you four foods you need to eat on an empty stomach, and what to avoid.
Let’s do this.
What to Eat on an Empty Stomach?
The fruit is packed with vitamins, fiber, water, and nutrients. Eating fruit at the right time allows your digestive system to take all significant benefits and improve the whole metabolism.
Fruit-missing your morning means detoxing your system and getting an enormous amount of energy.
All of this helps in your fat loss and lead to energy to focus on your daily activities.
There is a research saying that this is the right way of getting the benefits of eating fruit.
Oatmeal, Cornmeal Porridge, Buckwheat
Please continue eating oatmeal for breakfast. It coats your stomach lining protecting it from irritation that occurs naturally from the hydrochloric acid.
Your favorite oatmeal recipe contains soluble fiber that will lower the cholesterol and aids your digestion.
Cornmeal porridge and buckwheat stimulate your metabolism, as well. They also play a significant role into reducing the cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
Honey will wake up your digestive and immune systems. People suffering from a “lazy bowel syndrome” will feel the most of the honey as it helps by aiding stomach issues.
Even though it’s sugary, the 100% natural raw honey will get rid of harmful bacteria and viruses that attack your body.
My favorite breakfast now and forever. They are amazingly good and provide you with thousands of health benefits when you eat them in the morning.
Eating them in the morning is good because it will leave you full for longer. Studies show how eggs for breakfast will lower the total number of calories you eat during the day and help you with fat reduction.
That’s how these four amazing foods help you improve your overall health and digestion.
What to Avoid on an Empty Stomach?
Tomatoes are a healthy food. They are packed with nutrients and have a high amount of Vitamin C.
However, they also contain tannic acid that will increase the acidity in your stomach and leads to gastric ulcers.
Tomatoes are perfect for dinner when you are home.
The lactic acid bacteria in the yogurt is ineffective due to the high acidity of the stomach acid in the morning.
It’s all about feeling the health benefits. This means that you are going to get less of the yogurt’s health benefits when you drink it on an empty stomach.
Sugar is bad in the morning, during the day, and forever. Processed sugar in the morning damages the liver by overloading it. The whole situation could lead to liver damage.
That’s why a donut for breakfast is never a good idea.
Switch it with a nice green apple that will please your stomach with all of the needed nutrients and vitamins.
Bananas are good for your health. It’s a friendly fruit that belongs to any fat loss diet.
However, bananas contain magnesium and potassium that could lead to a blood imbalance if you consume them on an empty stomach.
This fruit is the perfect example of eating the right food at the wrong time.
Tea and Coffee
Your morning coffee will increase the acidity in your stomach. Keep in mind that your stomach in the morning is acidic by nature.
By pouring coffee in there, you are going to feel heartburn and indigestion through the day.
The same thing goes with tea. Drinking any tee in the morning will suppress the secretion of gastric juices in the stomach while reducing bile and acid.
And you already know that bile and acid are essential for aiding the digestion of foods and play a significant role into getting rid of excess cholesterol from your body.
Drinking alcohol when there is no food in your stomach opens the door for it to travel directly into your bloodstream.
As soon as the alcohol touches the blood it goes everywhere in your body causing:
- Temporarily feeling of warmth
- Decrease of the pulse rate
- Reduction of the blood pressure
- Widening of the blood vessels
It doesn’t take long for the alcohol to travel to your brain. Studies show how 20% of the alcohol a person drinks reaches the brain within a minute.
There you go. Now you know how to start to recognize what your body needs.
