Don't have fruits after food
It takes around 20 minutes for any fruit (except bananas) to travel from your stomach and get digested in the intestines. Eating a fruit after a meal gets stuck with the food, thus not traveling in time to the intestines, and getting spoiled as a result, and spoiling the food too!

Don’t bathe
According to Ayurveda, bathing after a meal increases the flow of blood to the hands and legs. Thus the amount of blood around the stomach will decrease. This weakens the digestive system of the stomach.

Both these beverages have benefits when consumed in a moderate amount. Drink them at least one hour after any meal.

Don’t swim Or do physical exercise
It’s best to wait for at least more than 30 minutes to do any exercise after eating food. This is because more blood is drawn to your gastrointestinal tract after eating, which can cause minor cramps.

Don't loosen your belt
Usually, people loosen their belts after a sumptuous meal. You would feel comfortable once again, which means you may continue overeating. Loosening the belt and then tightening it again can cause the intestine to twist.

Don't smoke
Now, this rule is not by Ayurveda, but by modern science. Experiments prove that smoking a cigarette right after a meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes.
