Below are some tips and facts about fruits that probably most of us may not have known yet…

 

And especially in this health crisis around the world, and apart from just being thankful and grateful that Singapore is still “safe”, we should keep on doing our part to keep ourselves fit and healthy… and be well prepared should circumstances worsen…

 

So, here goes… =)

 Picture2EAT FRESH FRUITS

We all think that eating means simply buying fruits, cutting it and just popping them into our mouths.

 

DO YOU KNOW YOU WILL BE MUCH MORE BENEFITED

IF YOU KNOW HOW TO EAT?

 Picture3CORRECT WAY OF EATING FRUITS

Fruits should be taken in empty stomach……
not as a deserted meal as is often done.

 

If you eat fruits like that it will also serve a major role to detoxify your system, supplying with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities 

 Picture4FRUITS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD

Lets say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit.

As fruits digest faster than bread, the slices of fruits digest quickly and ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but its passage is blocked by the bread which takes longer to digest….

 

….. In the mean time the whole meal ferments and

turns to acid.

Consequently when fruits, come into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

And you can imagine what the whole mass would look like in your stomach…

 

So it is better to eat fruits with an empty stomach, or right before your meal!

 Picture5You have heard people complaining –

☺     “Every time I eat watermelon I burp”,

☺     “When I eat durians my stomach bloats up”,

☺     “When I eat bananas, next thing I feel like running to toilet” etc.

 

Actually all this would not arise if you eat the fruits in empty stomach.

The fruits mix with the other putrefying food and produces gas and hence bloat!

Graying hair, balding and nervous outburst, dark circles under the eyes – all this will not happen if you take fruits with an empty stomach.

 Picture6It is incorrectly presumed that some fruits like orange and lemon are acidic and will enhance acidity in the stomach.

Research however shows that all fruits become alkaline in our body.

 Picture7When you need to drink fruit juice, drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans.

Don’t drink juice that has been heated up.

 

Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get nutrient at all.

You only get to taste.

So stop making ‘durian porridge’ if you want nutrients.

Cooking fruits  totally destroys all the vitamins.

 Picture8Eating the pulp or the whole fruit is far better than drinking the juice as the fiber is good for you.

 

If you drink the juice, drink them sip by sip slowly, you should let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

 Picture9A 3-day “fruit fast” is a very simple and very effective way to cleanse and de-toxify your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juices throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you  how radiant you look after that!

 

During the “fruit fast” you can eat different fruits at different times, although occasionally mixed fruit salad would also be permissible and more interesting.

 Picture10If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

 

Alright! That’s about all for now… =)

 

Wishing everyone a healthy and “FRUITFUL” life!!
