Most people think that eating fruit along with their main meals is a good way to stay healthy. Without properly understanding the body's digestive cycle over a 24 hour period, many people consume fruit in a manner that will bring them little nutritional benefit. Having lots of fruit with your main meals or eating it as a desert after meals is not the ideal way fruit should be eaten.

In order for your body to get the maximum benefit of eating fruit you should follow the guidelines given below.

  • It is best to eat fruit on an empty stomach. You can do this at any time during the day.

  • After eating fruit, you should leave around 30 minutes before consuming any foods besides fruit.

  • After you have had a proper meal, leave at least three hours before you eat any fruit. This will ensure that the previous meal has left the stomach.

  • You should try your best to consume mainly fruit before noon.

  • Avoid eating fruit along with other foods. Fruit should best be eaten on its own.

  • Never eat fruit as a desert, after a meal. This is is wasting much of the fruit's benefits.

  • Avoid fruits like bananas and avocados in the morning because they are heavy foods and tax the digestive system in the morning. These can be eaten after noon when the body is in the appropriate digestive cycle for such foods to be eaten.

  • If you feel hunger during the morning, eat fruit and you can keep eating portions of fruit until your blood sugar level goes back to normal, resulting in your hunger disappearing.

  • Eat only organic fruit to the best of your ability.

  • Avoid processed, cooked, or canned fruit. These contain large amounts of sugars, additives and other undesirables.

Fruit is digested in the intestine and not in the stomach. It is also rapidly digested and goes through the digestive system in around half an hour. The brain runs on glucose and fruit is the most efficient source of blood sugar. With sufficient fruit consumption your blood sugar levels normalize, allowing your body's hunger mechanism to be properly regulated and thus avoid over-eating and obesity.
