Correct Way of Eating Fruit

We all  think that eating fruits means just buying them...cutting them...and popping into our mouths.  It's not as you's important to and when to eat these fruits. 

It means...not eating fruit after your meals!  Fruits should be eaten on an empty stomach.  If you eat fruit in this way, it will play a major role to detoxify your system. It will supply you with a great deal of energy...for weight loss and other activities!

Fruit is the Most Important Food

Let's say you eat 2 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 in 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 before your meals.
You have heard people complaining, “Every time I eat watermelon, I burp.  When I eat durian (a tropical fruit) I 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. Otherwise, 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 stomach. 

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 extensive research on this. 

If you have mastered the correct way of eating have the Secret of  Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy, Happiness and Normal Weight.

When you need to drink fruit juices, drink only fresh fruit (not from the cans).Refrain from eating cooked fruit because you don't get the nutrients at all.  Cooking destroys all the vitamins. But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.  If drinking it, take mouthful by mouthful slowly because  you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. 

NOTE:  You can go on a 3-day “fruit fast” to cleanse  your body.  Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the three days.  You'll be surprised how radiant you look and feel.

Recommended Fruits: and papaya.  All are rich in vitamins and have medical benefits for various parts of the body.

“The Correct Way of Eating Fruit”
was written in 1998 by Devaagi Sanmugaam
(a chef and culinary writer who lives in Singapore.

Dr. Herbert Shelton was a renowned health educator and author
who died in 1985.  Dr Shelton held a doctorate degree
in naturopathy...rather than in medicine.

Recently, I read a novel by Rochelle Alers titled...Sanctuary Cove.
From it, I share with  you another important aspect about healthy food.

After her husband's sudden death, Deborah with her two teenagers (Whitney and Crystal), moved from Charleston to her grandmother's ancestral home on Cavanaugh Island (only a ferry ride away or the causeway).  Sanctuary Cove became the new home for her relocated business...The Parlour Bookstore.

Having spent many summers at The Cove previously as a child and later with her family, she knew the lifestyle of the people living here.  She commented to Dr. Asa Monroe (a snowbird from Delaware who was spending the winter months at The Cove Inn)...”This is our Four Seasons and the Waldorf Astoria all rolled into one...and Jack's Fish House is our own award-winning Le Bernardin and Brasserie.  All you have to do is...look around the Cove and I doubt you'll find more than a dozen overweight people.  We also  have the distinction of living well into our late 80's and 90's.  Do  you want to know why?  Because a lot of the food we prepare, especially the vegetables, is grown locally without the harmful chemicals  and pesticides that poison our bodies.  The chickens come from a farm in adjacent Haven Creek...and the pigs too.  Most residents have gardens and sell their surplus to restaurants.  All the seafood comes daily from local fishermen...crabs, oysters and shrimp. 

Fresh air...fresh industry pollution...and the ocean our playground.
Life couldn't be better!”

  1. Fun to learn about Fruits.... a famous quote is...
    A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin;
    what else does a man need to be happy?
    Albert Einstein

  2. Thank you for this bit of humour. I recall having dinner with a management group in Toronto in an Italian was good...but when a violinist came around "table to table"...the meal became So Delicious!
