Why You Should Not Eat Cold Foods In Excess

There is no clear evidence that suggests that you should avoid eating cold foods altogether. In fact, many foods are typically eaten cold or at room temperature, such as salads, sandwiches, and fruit.

However, according to Healthline, there are some reasons why you may want to limit your consumption of certain cold foods:

Digestive issues: Eating very cold foods can sometimes trigger digestive discomfort, especially if you have a sensitive stomach or suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Reduced nutrient absorption: Eating very cold foods may reduce the absorption of some nutrients in the digestive tract, particularly fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K.

Bacterial growth: Certain cold foods, such as deli meats and raw seafood, may contain harmful bacteria that can cause foodborne illness if not stored or prepared properly.

In general, it's important to maintain proper food safety practices when handling and storing cold foods, and to listen to your body's signals when it comes to digestive discomfort.
