Not all foods are recommended to be eaten on an empty stomach. These four foods should be avoided because they will do you more harm than good when eaten on an empty stomach.

1. Banana

Banana should be eaten after meals because they contain magnesium and potassium which can cause an imbalance if eaten on an empty stomach, thereby leading to heart issues.

2. Yoghurt

Yoghurt is loved by many because it provides endless benefits to the body. However, it is safe to avoid taking yoghurt on an empty stomach because its high acidic content may lead to stomach issues.

3. Pre-mixed oatmeal

Oatmeal is commonly taken for breakfast in most homes, as it contains a number of nutrients. However, avoid taking it on an empty stomach because it can have harmful effects on your body. Rather, take some fruits or a glass of juice before taking your oatmeal.

4. Raw green vegetables

Do not consume raw vegetables on an empty stomach because it can lead to irritation in the stomach, as they contain fibres that are insoluble.
