Be Careful How You Eat Fruit
Fruit helps detoxify your body, provides immune building antioxidants, and gives you wonderful uplifting energy- But only if you eat it correctly.
Yes, there is a correct way to eat fruit. If you eat it with other foods, you may be doing yourself more harm than good.You may think that eating and getting the amazing health benefits from fruit is as simple as popping a piece of delicious fruit into your mouth. Not so, says many health experts, including Dr Oz.
Fruit should be eaten on an empty stomach and should not be combined with any other foods.
Fruit digests differently than other foods. Eating fruit with other foods can promote gas and bloating.
Because the sugar in fruit digests very quickly and then moves on to the intestines, if you combine it with your meal, it actually has to hang around the in the stomach until it actually turns acid and interferes with the digestion of your other food. Eating fruit with food on a regular basis may lead to irritable bowl syndrome, diarrhea, constipation etc. When fruit turns acid waiting to pass through the stomach, you can enjoy the detoxifying benefit of fruit. Instead, you may be doing your body harm.
So, enjoy fruit- its good for you when you eat it correctly
Eat it before your meal ! Don't mix it with other food.
Remember: eat fruit alone or leave it alone!!
Kiwi: Not only does it have twice the vitamin C content of an orange, it is also a good source of potassium, magnesium, Vitamin E and fiber.
Strawberry: Very high in antioxidants which helps protect the body from disease causing free radicals. Buy organic strawberries for best results.
Watermelon: High in lycopene, Vitamin C, potassium, and glutathione.
ANOTHER HEALTH TIP:
NEVER DRINK COLD WATER AFTER A MEAL
Cold water turns oil ( from your food) into a solid. This slows digestion, which can produce a sludge like condition in the stomach which can create disease.
Instead drink hot tea after a meal instead to help digestion and clean the digestive tract.
