Here's how standing while eating affects your health

Here's how standing while eating affects your health

Many people think that eating while standing is nothing to worry about.

After all, many see it as a way to be more active and take even more steps.

But does this way of eating affect the digestion process? AgroWeb.org shows the pros and cons of this habit:

Benefits of Eating Standing Up
For some people, standing up while eating can help relieve acid reflux symptoms.

Acid reflux occurs when increased pressure in the stomach causes stomach contents to back up into the esophagus. This causes a burning sensation in the middle of the chest (heartburn) or in the throat, sour taste in the mouth and belching.

The risk of acid reflux increases when you lie down immediately after eating, because in this position food and acid can easily flow from the stomach into the throat.

In contrast, the standing position puts less pressure on the stomach. This means that it is less common for reflux to occur.

Why can it be harmful? It can cause gas and bloating
Physiologically, if someone is standing while eating, blood pools in their legs and this reduces adequate blood flow to the intestines where it is needed for digestion.

This will cause poor digestion of carbohydrates, which can lead to gas and bloating.

Moreover, people who eat while standing usually tend to eat quickly. And this increases the chances of swallowing more air and causing extra gas in the stomach.

It can lead to overeating
As we know, people who eat while standing usually tend to chew faster and this fast pace can promote overeating for several reasons.

First, standing up while eating is usually followed by movement, which promotes faster digestion and can therefore make you hungry even faster. Second, when you eat quickly and while standing, you're more likely to be distracted. . And when you're not concentrating while eating or savoring every bite, chances are you won't feel full.

On the other hand, the longer you chew, the less likely you are to eat more food. After all, it's your choice to sit or stand.

However, what is more important is to be "mindful" while eating and be in harmony with what your body needs.
