Physical Effects Overeating

Say you're full after a meal is not just a metaphor, when you eat too much at once you are stretching your stomach beyond its normal capacity. When you sit down to eat, your stomach is the size of a fist. So look before you eat the food on your plate, and compare it with the size of your fist, then feet like the food that enters your stomach, if excessive, it expands like a balloon.

Extending the capacity of your stomach repeatedly through overeating not only causes considerable discomfort, but long-term commitment to your health. If you recognize any of these symptoms, you're probably eating too much at one sitting:

- Running out of breath after eating. Eating fast and much causes the stomach to distend, forcing him to go against the diaphragm and lungs. Your stomach can expand more than three times its size after a large meal, causing difficulty breathing until your stomach starts to shrink.

- Nausea. When you eat a lot, not all the food goes quickly into the stomach. This causes a kind of stuck in the esophagus and its consequence are those feelings of discomfort and nausea, less than ideal to finish a delicious meal.

- Acidity. Eating too much at once difficult for the valve on your stomach from closing properly, causing digestive fluids go into your esophagus and causing reflux. This condition causes severe discomfort, if it happens regularly it could damage the delicate tissue around the esophagus, in some cases this can lead to esophageal cancer.

- Eat food. It is common to feel sleepy after a big meal. While this is partly due to brain chemistry, the food coma is directly related to energy expenditure needed to digest food overdose. The stomach and intestines are forced to process and distribute all the nutrients they are receiving, this causes a large expenditure of energy that leaves the rest of your system in a state as eager to go to sleep.

It can be tempting sometimes eat a lot, especially at family parties or special occasions, but a little common sense can help you overcome and avoid all the symptoms mentioned above. Try drinking a glass of water before eating, so you feel full before and without causing the side effects of which we speak. And test your normal day to five or six small meals every three to four hours instead of two dishes fill three times a day.

With your ideal body there is a healthy and safe alternative to use the science of nutrition in your favor to achieve the changes you desire in your body permanently.
