Most people think they known what constitutes an appropriate breakfast. There are some foods which seem healthy and should not be consumed on an empty stomach. Let us see which foods need to be avoided and which foods should be taken as their alternatives so that you can start your day healthy.
- Don’t: High sugar fruit juices – the classic juices are high in refined sugar which lead to a sharp spike in the blood sugar levels and leave you less satiated and vulnerable to energy dips and cravings during the day.
- Do: Oatmeal – it creates a protective coating inside the lining of the stomach, preventing hydrochloric acid from damaging the walls of the stomach. Oatmeal also contains soluble fiber that lower cholesterol levels, improves digestion and metabolizes the important minerals, vitamins, and carbohydrates. It will keep you full longer than yogurt.
