COPD Eating

>> Friday, April 23, 2010

While I haven't done a LOONNG post in forever, this is related to the series I started about COPD. It's short and sweet. Because COPD affects your breathing, it can also affect how you eat. I was very pleased when earlier today, Health.com posted an article on how you can enjoy your meals more when suffering from one of the many conditions under the COPD blanket. Eating is super important because, according to the chief medical officer for the American Lung Association, COPD leads to hypermetabolic states. This means burning of excess calories leading to weight-loss and undernourishment.

Many of the tips may seem like common sense, but people may need to be reminded of these things. People with COPD should first and foremost quit smoking. Also, drinking anything while eating can be a bit tricky. Another good tip is to eat your largest meal early in the day and try to eat many smaller meals. The list includes many other helpful tips so if you or someone you know suffers from COPD, you may want to check it out. There are 15 very easy tips in all.
