Fall is a particularly festive time, and the onset of Fall is accompanied by the return of some favorite foods and dishes that are specific to this time of year. It won’t take you long to find a storefront or market aisle selling pumpkin and apple related treats. If you are a patient with COPD, however, you need to be especially careful about what foods you decide to eat, and exercise caution when it comes to how much you are eating. Here are a few tips on some of the most popular fall foods for people with COPD.
Despite some advisories against certain traditional “fall foods,” it is still important to maintain caloric intake for energy. According to the American Lung Association, a person with COPD can burn ten times as many calories breathing as a healthy person.
Inogen wants you to enjoy Fall foods. Part of that enjoyment comes from knowing which foods to stay away from, which ones to enjoy in moderation, and which ones to have zero reservations about. As always, please share your pictures at the apple orchard, in the pumpkin patch, on a hayride, or anywhere else where you might be enjoying your Fall season.
