hi!
i don't if anyone posted a topic similar to this... but whatever. lol.
so my parents always tell me that i can't shower right after i finished eating my dinner.
i always ask them why??? and they would say its not good for you.
i ask how is it not, when basically i'm just SHOWERING.
but they still say its just not good.
they have been saying this ever since i was little and i never got my answer.
i even asked my sister, but she said she has no idea.
asked my friends, only some had their parents telling them, though they don't know either.
so i was wondering if anyone heard of this from their parents/friends/etc.
or maybe something that is alike....?

The logical explanation is:
after you ate, your body needs all it's blood and such for the digestive system. If you take a warm shower afterwards, your body has to divert blood for the cooling system and a weak individual might faint or get a heart attack. About the same when you eat and then do some serious excercise.

I heard this one. It's something like it'll make the digestion weird and give you a stomach ache. And don't lie down after a meal too, same reason.

@ athlon

So what if the weather is really hot? You are eating inside with airconditioning, after you eat, are you saying you shouldn't walk outside into the hot weather?


Sounds ridiculous to me, showering after eating doesn't seem to be harmful at all, I've done it countless times and I'm still ok.

I don't know if it is truth or not truth. But I would just rest for awhile or an hour after all my food digested then only I would go for my shower. More better is before I eat, I had my shower first. I don't really like to have shower after a full tummy.

It's is true that after eating to take a shower (change in temperature) is bad for you. This is one of the site I've found : http://expressindia....questid=2421103

But about when you are eating inside airconditioned and you walk outside in the hot temp. That's also not good. Some ppl will have a headache or getting sick only even they havent eaten. I think it's different from person to person. Young ppl maybe not that easily, but an older person will have more chance get problems.

A good example is that you need to have eaten 2-4hours before you go to sleep. If you go to sleep after an hour, you wont get sick, but it's still not good for you.

Dude, that's a user comment site. Not a infomational site. It's the same thing as this thread with all the speculation.

This is a myth from the fact that you shouldn't SWIM after you eat cuz you can get cramps and aching.

Showering is fine, i've done it all the time. Nothing happens to you. Nothing like a good greasy meal then having a shower to wash off all that oil from the steam.

the only thing I can imagine about eating and showering is if u bloated youself so bad that the pressure from the shower head made you yak.

Lol my dad has always told me to wait at least half an hour after eating before taking a shower. My mom tells me not to listen to my dad, but he's gotten me scared enough not to try it. I still don't know why.

Yeah alot of older people tell me that too. I think its probably not good to take a shower right after you eat so you can digest the food or something like that. I think there probably is a scientific reason for it so I listen and I dont take a shower right after I eat. No matter what the reason is I usually dont like to do things after someone warns me because I am pretty superstitious. I dont think anything very bad can happen if you shower right after you eat but why not be safe than sorry and just wait a little bit after eating.

yea same thing what my parents told me, never shower right after i ate in my life, and u r suppose to rest after u eat to let the food digest, showering is consider exercising since u r moving your body to scratch ur head and wash ur body

That you have done it all the time and nothing happened doesn't mean that everyone can do it without consequences. I will search for more informational sites to proof this.

Yup. It's about digestive system stuffs. It's better to let your food digest you shower or sleep or something like that. I can't believe some of your parents didn't tell you. My mom told me about the shower thing. And I learned from school how you shouldn't lay down right away after you eat. It's just better for your digestive system. It depends on how strong you are. But I always eat and then sleep (all those late night studies, etc). It's okay to do it, but not good if you do it too frequent. Your digestive system will suffer for it, that's all. I think this is more of a health issue than the "unexplained". :lol:

parents told me this too. reminds me of the 'dont swim on a full stomach'

Not interested enough to find an answer, it just seems illogical to eat after showering

another shower one my parents told me is to not get your skin wet (take a shower) if it is sweaty.

So I zip home on my bike not stop pedalling 20 mins, i come home, my back is sweaty, i think a warm showering will wipe the sweat clean off.

I've never heard of that before. The only reason I can think of is that it exposes your stomach, and if you have a sensitive stomach you may get sick. Other than that I don't know why your parents would say such a thing.
