I heard from my sister that her colleague told her today that, eating fruit after 9 pm at night will cause gastritis problem to the owner. Although i seldom eat fruit at night, but i prefer not to eat fruit at night, because i do have a mild gastritis problem. Anyway, it's good to get to know about this news, so i can share with my mylot friends about it. Do let me know, if you ever experienced this type of problem.

Hello myfb. A few years ago, I had some problems with the fruits like apples and bananas. I did not feel good in the stomach after eating them whatever time it was during the day. Out of this reason, I seldom ate them, but now it seems that my stomach is improving and I am eating them more often. I usually eat them in the morning, not in the evening. I agree with you that it is not good to eat in the evening after nine when it is time for sleeping as it needs to be digested in the stomach. It is better for it to be digested during the day when we are moving from place to place without just lying sleeping on bed for it to be digested by the stomach. Take care, friend.

Sorry for my late comment. Yes, i ever experienced the same gastric problem in the evening, whenever i ate apples and bananas. Because of that matter, i felt better not to consume any fruit late in the evening.

As for me, eating apples can even makes me having gastric problem, so i even had to avoid eating apples as well. Now, i prefer not to consume any fruits at night. Happy New Year holiday to all of you....

Maybe yes especially for sour fruits it causes us some trouble because of their acidic contents.

Yeah, i don't eat sour fruits and any fruits that are quite hard to digest. Because they can easily cause gastric problem to me, as i have mild gastric problem. So, the best way is, i avoid eating all kinds of fruits at night.

I really don't think that you should worry about that. It is eating foods such as pizza or greasy chips that will give you the stomach problems late at night, although I am in college and 2 AM runs to Taco Bell usually don't give people problems, haha. So there are worse things you could be eating late at night than fruit!

thanks for your opinion. Yes, i seldom eat these type of greasy and oily food at night. I ever ate once pizza at night during my sister birthday and ended-up having a terrible stomach-ache and had to visit the toilet frequently, until i had to consumed the medicine to stop it.

I dont think that eating fruits late at night will cause gastric problem. But if you have eaten food/s that is contradictory with the fruit, definitely you will have a stomach pain.

I ever ate banana and apple and ended-up having gastric pain the whole night. Now, i prefer not to eat any fruits at night, to avoid having this kind of problem again.

When i do came across this kind of gastric problem before, i will consume bread with a cup of warm full cream milk. I avoid all kinds of oily foods, fruits, and any other kind of food, which is quite hard to digest.

really? after read all of the responds, i think it is true, i always eat fruit at noon after lunch or at night, sometimes eating after supper or eating it before sleeping. as in the daytime, we have no time to eat and our office are large, there are many people in here, so we seldom eat anythings, because it is not good. so after a day working, we would like a large number of fruit and others. it seems that we treat it as a way to take a relax, maybe we are young and strong, so that we have never fell this problem before.from now, it would be better to take you advice. not eat fruit at night. good luck and have a nice day!
