Eating Fruits Correctly

Got the following article from an email. So i thought of sharing with everyone here. Most Asian consume fruits after meal while the Westener consume their fruits and salads before their entree. It's difficult here in the Asia i think cos fruits will be always served after lunch or dinner in local eateries. sometimes i'd ask the server to bring the fruits first before the entree and i always got a "?" look on their face. The only fruits picture i have. shot in Matahari supermarket in Jogja (^-^)

"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 as easy as you think It's
important to know how and when to eat..

What is the correct way of eating fruits?


If you eat fruit on an 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.

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 (fruit from Asia with a foul smell yet delicious
flavor) my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana 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

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.

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!

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..
