      How to eat better with COPD

      COPD or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a term that encompasses a series of progressive lung diseases such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and refractory (non-reversible) asthma. Though this is a progressive and incurable disease, it can be managed. Here are some ways to get a boost from nutritious foods.

      Get a better breakfast

      When you have COPD, as the day progresses, you might find yourself getting fatigued. Therefore, it’s important to have a solid breakfast. Make sure your breakfast has 25 to 30 grams of fiber every day, it could be a bowl of bran cereal and whole wheat toast. Oats with milk is another great way to start your day. This is filled with fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamin A and adding milk makes it more nutritious. Try topping it with berries instead of other sweeteners.

      Cheese and milk

      Says yes to cheese and milk. Some of the medications prescribed for COPD can make your bones brittle. Cheese and milk will give your body that calcium boost that will strengthen your bones.

      Go for plenty of fluids

      During meals, eat first and then drink, so that more nutrition has entered your body. Make sure that you consume a lot of non-caffeinated fluids. This will thin down the mucus in your airways and help you clear your lungs easily. 

      Increase fiber

      It’s important to consume lots of fiber. Foods rich in fiber include dry beans, bran, whole-grain cereals and breads, brown rice, fresh fruits and vegetables.


      Do you need to increase your calorie count? Give yourself a quick boost by having an egg. However, avoid eating raw eggs.

      Go fresh

      Whenever possible, choose to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. These are not only packed with nutrients, they also ensure that you have a balanced diet.
