Foods to “do” and “don’t” eat on an empty stomach.
Do – Eggs
Eggs are an excellent choice for a breakfast as they are high in protein and nutrients which boost metabolism and provide high energy levels. Eggs also cut the daily intake of calories.
Do – Watermelon
Watermelons are full of water and lycopene which supports heart and eye health.
Do – Oatmeal
Oatmeal is a great beginning of the day. It prevents damage or irritations of the stomach due to hydrofluoric acid.
Do – Blueberries
Blueberries are rich in nutrients and regulate blood pressure, boost metabolism and improve memory, concentration, and focus.
Do – Cornmeal Porridge
Cornmeal porridge is another perfect choice for starting the day. It will detox the system, eliminate heavy metals and toxins from the body.
Do – Honey
If you start the day with honey, you will boost your energy, shake the organisms, and improve mood, as it supports the production of serotonin.
Do – Nuts
The consumption of nuts for breakfast regulates the ph levels in the stomach and helps digestion.
Don’t – Citrus Fruits
Citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, and grapefruits are high in Vitamin C, but they are not the best choice for breakfast as their acidity might lead to heartburn and raise the risk of gastric ulcer and gastritis.
Don’t – Spicy Food
Generally, spicy foods are beneficial for health, but if consumed in the morning, they can irritate the whole digestive system.
Don’t – Banana
If you eat bananas on a completely empty stomach for breakfast, you will boost the magnesium levels on your blood, and thus lead to heart issues.
Don’t – Green Veggies
Green vegetables are not the best choice for breakfast as well, as they are abundant in amino acids which cause heartburn and flatulence.
Don’t – Sodas and Carbonated Beverages
Sodas and carbonated drinks are one of the worst choices you can make in the morning as they are high in sugar and will slow down the metabolism and lead to bloating.
Don’t – Tomatoes
Tomatoes have tannic acid which irritates the stomach and may lead to gastric ulcers and heart burn, so make sure you postpone their consumption until lunch.
Don’t – Pear
Pears are high in crude fiber which might lead to stomach ache and damage of the mucous membrane.
