Doctors have named eight foods that are categorically not recommended for fasting. Otherwise, unpleasant symptoms may occur in the body and increase the risk of developing a number of diseases, Actual News reported.

It is not advisable to eat fasting yoghurts. Despite the presence of useful probiotics in the composition of this product, it can provoke the release of hydrochloric acid, which destroys lactic acid bacteria, on an empty stomach.

Do not eat bananas on an empty stomach, since the level of magnesium in the body will increase, and this will negatively affect the work of the cardiovascular system.

Experts do not recommend drinking coffee immediately after waking up. The drink activates the production of gastric acid, which can cause heartburn, and a lack of serotonin will provoke depression and depression.

For stomach mucous membranes, it is harmful to drink carbonated drinks and pears on an empty stomach, and tomatoes and persimmons rich in tannins can cause the development of pancreatitis, colitis or gastritis. Freshly squeezed juices stimulate the production of pancreatic enzymes, so it is advisable to drink them after eating. The last, eighth product that you can’t eat on an empty stomach is sweets. They increase the level of glucose, which the pancreas ‘reacts’ with a sharp release of insulin. This ultimately leads to insulin resistance and increased appetite.
