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.

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.

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!
