Drinking water while standing
– Most of us drink water while standing in the kitchen or when we are out hanging with friends or even randomly just anywhere. Even in the wildest of your dreams you could never have thought how immensely dangerous the consequences can be in the long run. Drinking water while standing makes the movement of water through the organs brisk and rapid. It flows at such great speed that it doesn’t filter the harmful particles and carries it along only to deposit it in the lower organs of your body like kidney or bladder. It can cause stones to develop in the kidney and cause a lifelong stomach and heart problems. It can also cause incurable knee pains. Although it might take several years but when that happens, it will become difficult for a doctor to help you.
Long hours in-between food intake
– The work culture and tough life of the working populace make it difficult for them to keep a check on the timely intake of food. Even if they eat healthily, it doesn’t work and at times causes severe stomach ache or a headache. The reason is simple. No matter how healthy you eat if you cannot eat something at an interval of two to three hours, it is bound to cause problems. You will gain weight in spite of eating less and it will also cause gastric issues. On the other hand, if you eat at an interval of 3-4 hours, even if it is something very light, you will lose weight as a result of the thermogenic effect of food.
Taking milk empty stomach
– If milk is the first thing you are taking in the morning then it is advised that you take it with a toast, a biscuit, a fruit or anything solid. Lest, it can also lead to stomach disorders.
