We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It’s not as easy as you think. It’s important to know how and when to eat.
IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS! FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH. If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.
FRUIT IS AMONG THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD YOU EAT. Let’s say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.
In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil….
So make sure to eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining – “every time I eat watermelon I burp”, “when I eat durian my stomach bloats up”, “when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet”, etc. – actually, most of these issues will be prevented if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. Otherwise the fruit mixes with other food and produces gas and discomfort.
