Five things you should never do on an empty stomach…

Some things are not good to do on an empty stomach, so a safer option is to start the day with a healthy breakfast.

How you start your morning will affect your energy level throughout the day.

However, sometimes people develop habits that can lead to unwanted physical and emotional effects. If these habits have become part of your routine over time, they can affect your health. It is best to avoid these things, especially on an empty stomach.

Consumption of anti-inflammatory drugs

Medications such as aspirin, paracetamol and other anti-inflammatory medications should not be taken on an empty stomach as they can lead to serious digestive complications. The substances contained in these drugs can cause an imbalance in the gastric mucosa and in severe cases lead to gastric bleeding. To reduce the negative effects of anti-inflammatories on the digestive system, it is best to drink them with a little milk or a lot of water.

Drinking coffee

If you are one of those who like to drink coffee in the morning to wake up, you should be aware of the negative effects of drinking coffee. Although coffee is a drink that can give you energy, drinking coffee on an empty stomach can be a harmful habit. Even if coffee is decaffeinated, it increases the production of stomach acid and can cause heartburn and reflux. If you want to avoid this, replace coffee with tea or fruit yogurt, which can give you energy and is healthier than coffee.

Drinking alcohol

Drinking alcoholic beverages on an empty stomach can be harmful to the liver, heart and kidneys. The body absorbs alcohol twice as fast on an empty stomach. In addition, the elimination of its toxins is slower, which causes a higher level of alcohol poisoning and a stronger hangover. If for some reason you drink alcoholic beverages on an empty stomach, be sure to eat a light snack immediately afterward. Also, avoid combining alcohol with coffee as both contribute to dehydration.

Intense exercise

There are many myths about exercising as soon as you wake up. Some believe that exercising on an empty stomach helps burn more calories. However, it is unlikely that an empty stomach will affect the number of calories you burn. On the contrary, intense exercises in this case can reduce muscle mass. The body needs nutrients to start each day, and because of the intense exercise before breakfast, the body will use energy reserves to maintain strength. Replace intense exercise with one that doesn't strain your body too much. Also, try to eat at least one fruit before exercising, and if you have any digestive problems you should eat well before exercising to prevent complications.

Drinking lemon juice

Lemon juice contains many vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients that are important for the body. Despite these benefits, drinking lemon juice on an empty stomach can irritate the stomach lining, especially in cases of gastritis or problems with the digestive system.
