Don't Eat These Foods If You Want To Get Rid of Puffy Eyes
1. Don't Eat Fast Food
Fast food is full of salt and sugar and lunch often contains more than the total amount of sodium you should be eating in a full day (2,000 milligrams).
So don't be surprised! your body will retain water to counteract the high sodium and sugar levels. This physiological phenomenon will make your whole body puffy.
2. Don't Eat Too Many Tomatoes
Tomatoes contain solanine. This molecule is sometimes responsible for inflammation and puffiness.
Patients with inflammatory diseases have seen benefits after eliminating it. So you can also try, although this fruit is just too good to be removed from your diet.
3. Don't Eat Too Many Eggplant
Eggplant, like tomatoes, contains solanine.
So try to remove this veggie from your diet for a few weeks and you may also see benefits.
4. Don't Eat Too Many Canned Foods
Everything that comes from a can isn't as healthy as it seems.
You may want to wash them before cooking to get rid of the sodium sticking to it.
5. Slow Down on Wheat Bread (And Pasta)
Are you gluten intolerant or even allergic to wheat?
You may want to swap bread (and pasta) for a few weeks and see if your eyes de-puff.
6. Go Easy On Dairy Products
Dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt are inflammatory foods. They can cause swelling, especially after allergic reactions.
Try to go easy on the dairy to reduce the puffiness under your eyes.
7. Stop Eating Hot Peppers
I love spicy foods. However, peppers like jalapeños are from the nightshade family (like eggplants and tomatoes) and thus contain solanine.
Moreover, they also contain capsaicin, which causes your body tissue to burn and become inflamed.
And this compound also attacks the area around your eyes.
8. Reduce Sugar
OMG! Reducing sugar in your daily diets will probably be the most difficult task to remove your puffy eyes. It's indeed everywhere and delicious!
However, white sugar is one of the most inflammatory foods you can eat.
So swap your amazing cakes and cookies for fruits and you probably will wake up looking totally refreshed.
