[[i]b]This information was sent through email if this is from a website sorry i do not know..i just want to share this helpful with you guys..pls. take time to read [/b][/i] THE CORRECT WAY OF EATING FRUITS We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it,and just popping it into our mouths. It's not so easy as you think. It's important to know how, and when to eat. What is the correct way of eating fruits? * 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 THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD. 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 water-melon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat bananas, 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 a 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?

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. Drinking Cold water after meal = Cancer! Can you believe this?? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down, and be Absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats, and lead to cancer. It is best to Drink hot soup, HOT TEA or warm water after a meal. A serious note about heart attacks HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE': (THIS IS NOT A JOKE!) Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea, and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive... A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life. Read this ...It could save your life!! Let's say it's 6.15 pm and you're driving home. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm, and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself. 'HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE': Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly, and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly, and Very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, deep, and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath, and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart, and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. Tell as many Other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!

It's such a long post.. lol =D Actually fruits is a form of carbohydrate too.. Fruits can be a meal, but it cant totally replace rice.. Fruits and just the same like other food, they need certain food and things to react with each other, in order to trigger the real effect of the fruits and as well as food ^_^ UNless one is very health consious, if not, normal eating and will be ok for the body with eating of fruits with moderation everyday ^_^

hi kaesy a lot of that stuff about fruit is purely hog wash and goes against everything that the American Diabetes associations doctors have to say about fruits. rots in your stomach is old old myths,and not true. this is just deplorable 'as a lot of people will read this and think it is true. I and many hundreds of people have been eating fruit as dessert and have never had it rot in their stomachs or any of that other crap.also drinking cold water after a meal does not lead to cancer nor do any of that other crap. you should verify this stuff before p;osting it,this is pure garbage. all of that stuff has been disproved by doctors and medical experts not by some idiot who makes up stuff and puts it in an e mail. now the stuff about heart attacks has been badly copied out of american medical journal.

Got a new info..you might want to read this http://www.fredericpatenaude.com/fruit-article.html Eating fruit before meals and other food combining rules Natural Hygienists have known for a long time that fruit doesn’t combine well with other foods. The reason is that fruit contains simple sugars that require no digestion. Thus, they will not stay for a long time in the stomach. Other foods, such as foods rich in fat, protein and starch, will stay in the stomach for a longer period of time because they require more digestion. So if you eat fruit after a meal, the fruit sugar will stay for too long in the stomach and ferment. This is why people experience digestive trouble when eating fruit that way. They then blame that particular fruit for their trouble and claim that they are “allergic” to it. Natural Hygienists have been recommending for a long time that fruit be eaten alone with no other foods. They have also recommended eating melons alone and avoiding mixing acid fruits with sweet fruits such as bananas. These are great recommendations, but can be definitely be simplified. Many people have a difficult time eating a meal of fruit alone. They’ll eat a meal of melon and not so long after they’ll be hungry again, for the simple and obvious reason that melons are not calorie dense. Eating a small cantaloupe (200 calories) is not going to sustain you for very long. But because they have read somewhere that mixing melons with other fruits is not allowed, they’ll try to wait until the next meal to eat something else and then will often in the meantime overeat on dried fruits and nuts to compensate. The solution to this is very simple: since fruit digests so fast, it is possible to eat fruit before any other food. You can, when you are hungry, eat as much fruit as you care for. One type of fruit only would be ideal. Then wait a little bit, like 5-10 minutes, and have any other food you desire. This can be a salad, a little avocado with tomatoes, some nuts, or anything. It can be cooked food too. If you’ve been trying to follow food-combining rules without success, this new information could be very valuable to you. The same goes with mixing other fruits together. You can eat all the melon you want, and then, if you are still hungry, eat another type of fruit to satisfy your appetite. It is not necessary to eat melons alone if they are eaten before another foods. You can even have melon and then have an avocado after. The only thing that is important to remember is to have the fruit first - not after, and ideally only have one variety at a time. Fru

this is still hogwash as I onlyh go by what real doctors and real medical experts say not by some quack hygenists, I do not belive every thing that naturalists and other quacks say. My doctor has told me that you can eat fruit with a meal, before a meal or after and it will not rot in your stomach.to begin with the moment food gets into your tummy the various secretions that digest our food start digesting it. I even called a nutrionist for american diabetes about this rotting in your tummy she is a registered dietition and knows what she is talking about and she said that is nonsense spouted by people who want to make a buck on the internet. I go by qualified people when it comes to food and my health.

that was a long information on how to eat fruits.. I remember way back college, my teacher in chemistry also told me that eat first the fruit, before you eat your meal.. because the vitamins that you'll get from the fruits wouldn't take effect on you.. thank you for that.. hhmm.. I don't want to eat fruits in to three consecutive days.. there's a tendency for me to have a stomach ache.. anyway, I find this post very informative..thank you so much.

According to Yoga and Ayurveda , the idea is to not eat fruits on a full stomach ... fruits provide energy but will interfere with digestion of the food had during a meal ... so a good time to eat furits is an hour before meals. Also, it is always advisable (not compulsory) to eat seasonal fruits.
