Eating Fruits

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..

What is the correct way of eating fruits?
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.

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 please 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 all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!

Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will not happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.
You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

KIWI:  Tiny but mighty. This is a  good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E
& fiber.  Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

APPLE:  An apple a day keeps the doctor away?  Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

STRAWBERRY:  Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

ORANGE :  Sweetest medicine. Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away,  lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve  kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

WATERMELON:  Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene - the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation.  Papaya  is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

I had a nutritionist tell me that Cherries were a wonderful fruit because of the iron content.  And that they are also highly nutritious.  

Thanks for the information!

I'm a huge fan of strawberries and kiwi!!
611067 tn?1458595083
I wish I could eat kiwi - but the last two times I tried, my mouth swelled up inside.  So, I think I've developed an allergy - and it's not fair!  LOL!!!

I read recently that Kiwi fruit has ben put on the super food list along with Blue berries. they are cheap aswell I get 4 for $1  blueberries are horribly expensive .

Blueberries are outrageous here too.  Kiwi's just started showing up in the stores again here.  39 cent each here.  But still, pretty cheap.  I've been making my hubby a fruit salad everyday for lunch.  He's been eating it first then waiting a couple hours before he eats the heavier foods.  He's been noticing a big change in how "efficient" his "system" works now. LOL!!

I just love fruit, thanks for the info on how to eat it and such, I will remember that.

I think also, since one of my docs wants me to detox, I will do the fruit detox, I know I can stick to that.

I used to love Bananas, but one time I ate one and it burnt the heck out of my tongue. I have not had that happen since, but, I am a little leery of them.

Great post!!!!

Oh yes, in Washington state, Berries are very popular, they are really great antioxidants, so, I try to eat them when I can.
