Fruits in the Diet

So, what is the correct way of eating fruits?


If you eat fruits on empty stomach, 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. 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 due to the bread taken before the fruit. In the meantime the whole meal of bread & fruit 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 at some point heard people complain that every time they eat watermelon I burp , when they eat durian their stomach bloats up, when they eat banana they feel like running to the toilet, any many other different complains.

Actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. They fruit mixes with the putrefying of other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat! 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 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.

Some prefer cooking fruits before consuming them but that only gives you taste but zero nutrients. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.
Eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the fruit juice. If you should drink the fresh juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.
