Fruit is always an invitation to pleasure in eating. Fruit is without doubt, the most beneficial, energy, life enhancing food you can eat IF! It is correctly consumed.
We all think eating fruit means just buying fruits, cutting them and just popping them into our mouths. No, it’s not as easy as you think, it’s important to know how and when to eat fruits, especially the body nourishing ones.
The correct consumption of fruit is very closely associated with proper food combining. What you are about to learn may be met with a certain amount of skepticism as it attacks your believe system about fruit, and that’s all right. It involves a new way of thinking about your body and how you nourish it.
When fruit is correctly consumed, nothing can match its benefits, by its nature fruit affords the body opportunity to cleanse built up residue from the system. In this cleansed state every aspect of your life is enhanced.
What constitutes correct fruit consumption? It is actually quite simple. Since fruit is not intended to be in the stomach extensively. Correct consumption means that FRUIT SHOULD NEVER BE EATEN WITH OR IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING ANYTHING. It is essential that when you eat fruit, it is eaten on an empty stomach.
If you eat fruit correctly, because it has so much water and demands so little energy to digest, it will play a major role in enabling your body 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 you can eat. But if fruit is eaten on top of other foods, many problems result. Say you eat a sandwich, and then you eat a piece of fruit- for example, a piece of water melon. The piece of watermelon 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 people complaining – every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat bananas, I feel like running to the toilet etc. Actually, all these will not arise if you eat fruit the right way- on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with other putrefying food and produces gas, and hence you will bloat. Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, dark circles under the eyes all these will not happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach. It is a scientific fact.
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 M. Shelton, an expert who did a research on this matter:
"If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you’ve got 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 cans. Don't even drink fruit juice that has been heated up. Don't eat cooked fruits, because you dont get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.
But eating a whole fruit is better than the juice. If you drink the juice, drink it slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.
You can go on a 3-days fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fresh fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!
