Fruits SHOULD be eaten on an EMPTY stomach!
Not after you've had your meal. Not as dessert.
Eating ‘dessert’ in the form of fruits has become a habit in many cultures. Not many people realize, however, that eating fruits after meals cause the food to ferment, which in turn causes bloating, or gas. If you eat two slices of bread, for example, followed by a slice of fruit, it will be difficult for the fruit to go straight through the stomach and into the intestines. The moment the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil. The fruit mixes with other foods and putrefy them, producing gas. Hence you bloat.
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. Forget about that fried banana fritter or that fruit tart. Who're you trying to kid?!
