When it comes to our favorite chocolates, chips, or any type of high-calorie food, experts emphasize that indulging in these unhealthy habits in moderation is acceptable. However, did you know that the same principle also applies to certain habits typically deemed healthy? Surprisingly, even some ostensibly healthy habits can become unhealthy habits when taken to extremes.
In an intriguing piece, Siddithi magazine delves into the topic of unhealthy habits, drawing insights from a report published in ‘The Sun.’ This report uncovers vital information about the impact of human diet and daily routines, shedding light on the nuances of unhealthy habits in our lives.
Use of vegetables
According to the report, eating too many vegetables also has negative effects on the body, especially for people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.
In this regard, the World Health Organization says that adults should eat at least 400 grams of fruits and vegetables daily to reduce the risk of non-communicable diseases. Although these high-fiber foods are important for your overall health, consuming too much of them can lead to serious health problems.
Many people complain of bloating, gas or diarrhea after eating vegetables like cabbage and broccoli, says Andrea Burton, technical advisor at BioCult. He further said that although raw vegetables do not affect the digestive system, due to the abundance of fiber in them, their continuous consumption can affect digestion.
Andrea added that items such as mushrooms, celery, broccoli and onions are listed on the ‘top food map’ of foods that trigger these symptoms.
In this regard, experts have advised to follow a ‘low food map’ program for a short period of time to keep the digestive system healthy without any negative effects on physical health.
Foods that are high in histamine
Histamine is a chemical that activates your immune system and primarily plays a role in triggering allergy symptoms.
This chemical is found in foods we think are healthy, such as dried fruits, avocados, and dairy products.
Nutritionist Hana Brai says that an excess of histamine can affect the cells in the body that keep the immune system active. He further said that in the above mentioned case some problems like motion, fever cough, difficulty in breathing and blood pressure problems may occur in addition to headache symptoms.
Use of dietary supplements
Nutritionist David Weiner says that along with a balanced diet, it is important to take certain vitamins so that the body’s system can function well and detoxification can be done in a good way, but moderation is best.
Too much vitamin C in the diet, which is often found in fruits or vegetables, can cause nausea, stomach pain or digestive problems.
In this regard, nutritionist David says that vitamins should not be used in excess of the prescribed limit and contact the physician when symptoms appear so that appropriate solutions can be obtained.
Frequent use of water
By the way, by keeping a water bottle with you, you remember to drink water and can easily drink from time to time.
However, Andrea says that it is better to drink tap water than bottled water because sometimes it is not known exactly when it was filled and what is the ratio of chemicals in it. So in some cases it can be harmful.
Andrea further said that before using bottled water, it is important to know the information on the bottle to know when the water was filled and from which source, besides the information about filtering it is also written on the bottle.
Food experts further said that people should use their tap water after filtering it themselves so that there is no doubt.
Avoid fatty foods
Although excessive consumption of fatty foods is not advisable, it is also not correct to avoid them continuously. Before buying such food, it should be ensured that the fat and calorie ratio is mentioned on the label of the food and drink being bought so that the food is consumed accordingly.
Fats contain twice as many calories as carbohydrates and proteins, but there are healthy types of fat that can be very beneficial.
Nuts, seeds, avocado, and olive oil contain healthy fats that are beneficial to human health and protect healthy cells and hormones.
The benefits of exercise
Exercise is very important for a strong and healthy body as well as a healthy mind which also protects the body from wear and disease.
In this regard, nutritionist David said that physical exercise should be done step by step and regularly in a proper manner, doing more can be harmful.
Chewing gum, especially sweet gum, is very beneficial for people who consume chicken feed, as chewing gum between meals naturally allows air to enter the stomach, which makes the stomach feel full. And there is no desire to eat.
Chewing unsweetened chewing gum is not recommended as it adds artificial sweeteners that are not easily digested and cause flatulence (bloating).
Sanitizing hands frequently
After the epidemic of Kovid-19 or Corona, most people have adopted the habit of sanitizing their hands on a regular basis, for which they always carry a sanitizer with them.
Although antibacterials are essential to keep germs at bay, overuse can throw the skin’s microbiome system out of balance, which can affect the natural immune system.
