10 Causes of my poor digestion

  1. Taking Heavy meals/Overeating:

    My diet was 2 big meals and many snacks times in a day .Two meals were One lunch and other dinner.Most of the time I watched TV while eating or surfed on internet.And which lead to overeating without my realization.Overeating caused excess load on digestive system.I preferred eating as and when i felt hungry there wasn't any specific schedule for my diet.

  2. Fast food/Junk food:

    Who dose not like fast food ,chocolates,cookies ,chips ,fries . So I am not an exception.I Included these food items in more amount in my diet which created more problem for my tummy.

  3. Drinking less water:

    Water is necessary for proper circulation of nutrients in body .And digestive system needs water for proper functioning .Without water waste in body doesn't get flushed out and causes many health problems. This can be avoided drinking water and I did not drink enough water Which caused worst digestion and also headaches.

  4. No physical exercise :

    There wasn't any physical exercise in my routine. I started my day late in morning after 8 a.m. And then did all household work and didn't give time for exercise.Which is one more cause of my less immunity and freequent stomach infections.

  5. Skipping breakfast:

    Breakfast is the important meal of the day and I skipped it many times.Some times couldn't get time to eat because of morning household work or just laziness for cooking it.I started day with only cup of tea.

  6. Sleeping just after dinner:

    I always took dinner very late after 10 pm in night .And just after dinner preferred sleeping. Which didn't give time for digesting food.Ideally dinner should be taken 2 to 3 hours before sleeping.
  7. Not chewing food properly:

    I was having habit of eating meals in a hurry .So I didn't chew food properly.This made harder for my intestines to absorb nutrients and it caused indigestion. Improperly digested food causes adverse effects on health .By chewing food properly it efficiently breaks down and digestive enzymes in saliva makes it easy to digest.

  8. Outside food:

    I enjoy trying different cuisines so I preferred taking outside food more often.Outside food has artificial colors, additives, preservatives, spices and more oil which are harder to digest.Frequently eating these ingredients caused indigestion.

  9. Never eating on time:
    There wasn't specific time/routine for my lunch and dinner.I took meals whenever I got free time.Which was again one more reason of indigestion of food.

  10. Munching snacks:

    At any time in a day I loved to munch snacks.Many times just after meals I used to eat chocolates,ice creams,chips,nuts.Sometimes as leftover bowl of my kid and other time just to give company to others.Many times I ate without getting hungry .
