What Are Digestive Destroyers?
People react differently to food combinations. Digestive destroyers are foods or combinations that result in discomfort after eating. Eliminating – or reducing them from your diet can help you to lose weight the healthy way.
Signs of Digestive Destroyers
They are difficult to digest and may cause:
- Gas pains and cramps
- Acid reflux or heartburn
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Bloating and even nausea
These reactions can be caused by eating to much food at one time, eating fast, or consuming foods that irritate your digestive tract. Antacids and pills to help with indigestion are a big business. Proper eating will eliminate the need for these medications.
Digestive Destroyers and Your Stomach
Your digestive tract, starting with your esophagus and stomach, contains enzymes that break down food. You also have bacteria in your intestinal tract that process what you eat.
A healthy digestive tract has about 85 percent good bacteria, including flora in the intestines. These send food into your body and elimination system. You do not need to overburden this system.
You can overload your stomach with too much sugar, starches, alcohol, and spicy foods among other culprits. While spicy foods are good for your metabolism, you may consume too much of a good thing. Binge eating can easily overwhelm your stomach.
Rich, creamy, high sugar, and starchy foods take longer to break down in the stomach, liver and pancreas. They can wreck your digestion and lead to stomach pain along with obesity and heart disease.
Coffee, other acidic drinks and foods can also irritate your stomach and digestive tract. Alcohol is another digestive irritant for many people.
Any type of stress affects your body. Stress may cause stomach aches, inflammations and irritable bowel symptoms.
Stress management is an important part of healthy living. Eating the right foods will help. Overeating due to stress only makes digestion more difficult.
