10 ‘Healthy’ Foods To Eat And Avoid On An Empty Stomach

Healthy Eating

Avoid these 6 foods when your stomach is empty:

1. Tomatoes

Tomatoes, although packed with nutrients and high amounts of Vitamin C, also contain high levels of tannic acid which increases acidity in the stomach and can lead to gastric ulcers. Save the tomatoes for dinner salad.

2. Yogurt

The primary reason to avoid putting yogurt on an empty stomach is because the benefits of the lactic acid bacteria found in yogurt is rendered ineffective due to the high acidity of stomach acid. Therefore you gain very few of yogurt’s health benefits when consumed first thing in the morning.
