What Is The Right Way To Eat Fruit?

Fruit is perhaps the most versatile food. It can be eaten as an appetizer, eaten as a dessert, eaten before meals in its natural form, or juiced, but it is most beneficial when eaten in its pure form.

Fruits consumed after the main meal interact with it and begin to ferment and sour. Therefore, it is recommended to take a break after eating for 2-5 hours, depending on what you have just eaten. It’s best to eat fruit for breakfast, before lunch, and in between meals (snacking).

It is good to start any meal with fruit, not the other way around. If you eat fruit on an empty stomach 30 minutes before a meal, the vitamins will be better absorbed and have a positive effect on your weight.

There are no strict rules for eating fruit, but there are a few things you should pay attention to in order to get the most out of fruit.

How to get the most out of fruit?

  1. Do not eat fruit on a full stomach. You can eat fruit at any time of the day, but not after a meal.
  2. After you have eaten any fruit, wait 30 minutes before eating anything else.
  3. Fruits are good to eat in the morning. They will gradually raise blood sugar levels and “wake up” the digestive system after sleep.
  4. Try not to eat fruit with foods that are difficult to digest.
  5. Bananas and avocados are heavy foods, so it’s best not to eat them at night. It is better to eat these fruits as snacks when the digestive system is ready to accept them and has time to digest them.
  6. It is better to eat fresh fruit than frozen, and even more so canned fruit – they contain a lot of sugar and often chemical additives and lose almost all their beneficial properties.

You should also pay attention to the fact that it is useful to eat fruits of the same type at one meal, rather than combining different types. If you want to eat several fruits at once, that’s fine, but it’s better if they are of the same type. For example, you should not mix sweet fleshy fruits with citrus fruits. In addition, you should not combine conflicting foods: you should not eat citrus fruits after yogurt, because such combinations are bad for the stomach and can cause stomach upset.
