When to eat fruit?

When to eat fruit?

We all know the benefits of eating fruit.
Most fruits are high in fiber, folate, potassium, vitamin c and many more nutrients.
All these nutrients and minerals help guard against disease, strokes and high blood pressure.

Fruit is a natural detoxification tool and provides us with natural sugars.
When eaten the correct way and time it will cleanse the body of toxins and help the digestive system.
When fruit is eaten, the digestive process works very quickly. Our body uses different enzymes
to digest fruit and it needs to process the fiber and nutrients separately. That is why it is best eaten by itself, first thing in the morning.  You absorb all the nutrients and vitamins and avoid digestive problems.  If you think about it, it is easier for your body to digest one type of food or fruit, then a crazy combination of buffet style food!
Remember how you feel after going to a "buffet" and stuffing yourself with numerous different foods.  I refuse to do that anymore!

When you eat fruit with other foods, it stays in the stomach too long( other foods digest slower) and begins to rot and ferment!  By eating only fruit in the morning and fruit as a mid-morning snack, you will kick your metabolism into high gear.  Great way to lose weight and have plenty of energy.  Everything will be digested by lunch time and you will be ready for a great meal to continue through the day.

Here is a great chapter from Dr. Garth Davis' book "Proteinaholic"
Also a link to a great Rich Roll podcast about a ultra-runner, who only eats fruit!

Here's a link to my Pinterest, if anyone wants to find a great recipe or links to wellness info.

Have a great week.
Be kind.
