1. Spicy Food
Avoid eating spicy food in the morning as it creates acidic properties in your body which is not good for your body.
2. Black Coffee
Coffee contains caffeine which is acidic in nature that might cause heartburn and other digestive problems so it is better suggested to add some milk to it which will nullify its acidic nature.
3. Lemon Water
Again lemon is acidic in nature so it is not advisable to take lemon water on an empty stomach.
If taken without eating anything, the rate of alcohol absorption in your body will increase. And if this happens, then the alcohol may put a severe effect on your heart, kidney and liver.
5. Taking pills
Never take pills on an empty stomach rather it is advisable to replace water with milk. So next time if you take medicines then take with milk.
6. Cold Beverages
We are always told by our parents to start our day with some warm milk or tea but we instead we take ice tea or cold coffee which is totally wrong. These drinks may damage your digestive system while warm milk can boost your metabolism.
7. Sugary foods or drinks
With the stomach being empty, sugar in the form of fructose in fruits can cause an overload on your liver. Processed sugar is even worse, so avoid breakfast desserts or overly sweet smoothies.
8. Raw Vegetables
Never eat raw vegetables on an empty stomach. As they are full of fiber which puts extra loads to your stomach. So eating raw vegetables is not so a good idea.
