Five things you should not do after having a full meal - you won't believe what it is!

3 South African meals you have to make this Human Rights Day

Is there anything nicer than a nap after a full meal? We don't think so! However, that is not a very healthy habit to have. 

Here are a few things that you should never do after a full meal.

1. No sleeping - The meal has not digested and you will not feel relaxed after a nap. 

2. No smoking - Smoking after a full meal is equivalent to 10 cigarettes. 

3. No bathing - Bathing after a meal delays digestion. The blood around the stomach flows to other parts of the body during a shower instead of helping with digestion.

4. No fruits - Eat fruits first and then the meal. Fruits digest at different speeds. 

5. No tea- Tea leaves are acidic and will affect the digestion process. Avoid tea one hour before and after meals.

What do you do straight after you've eaten?
