8 Foods That Can REALLY Harm Your Stomach

8 Foods That Can REALLY Harm Your Stomach

Did you know that each year, close to 25% of people are affected by abdominal pain, heartburn and indigestion? This is caused by a bad diet. Let’s talk about 8 Foods That Are Harming Your Stomach! Should I cut bread? How about processed meat? Do I really have to stop drinking alcohol?

1. French fries 

Professionals will go on all day about how French fries are loaded with salt and can make your blood pressure skyrocket. But do you realize what this famous fast food side is doing to the inside of your gut?

2. Pizza 

Okay, this is going to be a controversial one. Perhaps the most troublesome of all of our picks on this list. Afterall, an estimated 3 billion pizzas are sold in the U.S. each year. Heck, 1.5 million are said to be eaten on Superbowl Sunday alone!

 I hate to rain on your parade, but too much pizza is terrible for your stomach. 

3. Watermelon 

While watermelon is definitely among the most delicious summer snacks, your stomach thinks differently. Have you ever heard of fructose? Fructose is a natural sugar that doesn’t fully absorb into your digestive system. When too much is had, something occurs known as fructose malabsorption. This can lead to bloating, gas and abdominal pain. Not to mention possible fatigue and vomiting. 


4. Beer 

Put the drink down! Now! I’m kidding, you don’t need to stop drinking beer that urgently. Just know that the beverage has some pretty negative effects on your stomach. The average bottle of Corona carries with it 148 calories, while a Budweiser has as many as 200. These beers can carry a minimum of 13g of carbohydrates.

5. Ice Cream

To put it simply, ice cream has lactose. Did you know lactose intolerance effects between 30 and 50 million Americans? While we’ve all heard of this “lactose intolerance”, many aren’t educated as to what lactose actually is? 

Lactose is a distinct sugar that is only found in dairy products, and it can be really harmful to your stomach. Similar to beer, if all your consuming is ice cream, your stomach may begin to bloat. But that’s not it. 

Dairy products in general are known to have significant effects on your gut’s microorganisms.

6. Chips

Like French fries, potato chips are another salty side you can easily lose track of.The average bag of chips contains 274 calories along with 24 g of carbs and 262 mg of sodium.And that’s just regular potato flavour.

Think about all the other garbage you’re putting into your stomach when eating salt and vinegar or barbeque!

While calorie and carb intake is important, we need to discuss saturated fats. ‘Cause chips…They have a lot.

There are almost 19g of fat in a single bag of potato chips.Let’s say you were to eat the equivalent of two bags -- Let’s face it, that’s easy to do.

The saturated fats would be hard to digest, eventually sitting in your gut and wreaking havoc on your midsection.

Overtime, your stomach fat will build up, resulting in a belly.Enjoy your cheat meal.Hopefully, it will be your last one for a while.

7. Eggs

This popular breakfast choice is one that may be hard to shake for many of you.It certainly is for me.
While eggs straight from the chicken may not be harmful, farm-raised eggs are a different story.

These eggs may not be equipped with the proper antibiotics known to be found in regular eggs.

You may also want to check if you are allergic to eggs.Sensitivity could lead to abdominal pain and poor digestion.

If you have extreme intolerance toward eggs, you can also experience nausea and vomiting,but those are in extreme cases.

8. Corn

At this point, you’re probably thinking, “Hey, corn is delicious and healthy for you.

How can it possibly cause harm to your stomach?”

Well corn is a vegetable, so obviously there are going to be benefits.The problem is that corn contains cellulose, an organic compound found in plants that may not digest if it isn’t properly chewed before swallowing.

In the case of improper digestion, corn can cause the usual pain in your stomach, along with gas and bloating.

I don’t mean to sound like that annoying parent, but you’re not a baby anymore.Chew your corn!
