Fruit eating mistakes
1.Eating fruits after meal
We love eating sweets after meals but when we are health conscious we prefer fruits as a sweet dish.
But did you know that doing this you are actually messing up with your digestive system.
Let’s say you eat 2 chapatis then a slice of fruit. Now the problem will arise because the fruits are digested by body much faster the Slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestine, but it is prevented from doing so due to the chapati being taken before the fruit.
The minute the fruit comes in contact with the food and the digestive juices in the stomach the entire mass of food biggest to spoil. Why because it starts fermenting.
This is the reason you might have heard people complaining ::
I feel bloated after eating an orange, I feel like running to the toilet after eating a banana But why is it so? It says that you eat fruits after meals.
2. Cutting and storing fruits
In today’s fast life we like eating on the go.
We cut the fruits at night before and store it in the fridge for the next morning in a box.
Because we don’t want to eat anything unhealthy outside.
But did you know, that eating fruits long after cutting them takes away most of the nutritional value! yes true.
Fruits when cut should we consume within 20 minutes or else they start losing their potential.
Not just these fruits which are otherwise alkaline when eaten this way cause acidity in the body.
Doing this daily May make your blood little more acidic which in turn causes skin issues greying of hair and even hair fall.
So its great that you choose fruit as a snack options, just make sure you do not cut it, take the whole fruit along.
3.Not eating local fruits
Exotic fruits are in fashion.
Nowadays Indian Supermarkets are full of Kiwis, berries, avocados which when wrapped travel the Seven Seas to reach the shelves.
People are switching to foreign fruits and Bitching the local produce thinking the former to have some magical nutrients.
This is what intensive marketing does.
However the reality is quite the opposite, there is a reason why only a certain fruit grow in a particular region and a particular climatic condition.
Fruits which are local,ripe and eaten in the proper season and climate serves as the pure nectar for the body.
The absorption of nutrients from the local fruits is much higher than that from exotic fruits.
No doubt kiwi and berries are very nutritious, but for the people who live where it grows naturally.
We should take to our very own banana, orange, papaya etc. More over exotic fruits are heavily over priced.
So you not need to ask anybody what fruit to eat? Whatever is in the season, Just eat It. By doing this you not only get better nutrition from the local fruits but also you will directly help to local vendors and country economy.
4.Drinking fruit juices
Do you always prefer fruit juice over whole fruit?
Well drinking fruit juices is ok, but eating whole fruits is much better.
The reasons are many.
First of all, when you drink fruit juices you miss out on a very important constituent of fruit called the dietary fibre. We all know how important the dietary fibre is for proper digestion and for smooth bowel movements.
Secondly since foods are high in sugar and the people who thing that suits hinder the fat loss process should definitely eat whole fruit.
The fibre present in fruits make sure that the fruit sugar does not spike the blood insulin levels.
One more thing in which most of us are unaware of is that when we crashed the fruits in the mixer, the excess heat generated may also destroy some of the vitamins and minerals present in the fruit.
You can drink fruit juice sometimes but mostly prefer eating whole fruit.
And when I say fruit juice I mean fresh fruit juice not the Packed juices which hardly have any nutritional value on the contrary, they are loaded with added sugar preservatives and artificial flavours.
5.Combining fruits with milk
We Indians can’t do without evening cup of Tea.
And when we get diet conscious, outgoes s the bhujia and incomes the fruit.
However the least that we realise that the combination of fruits and milk is not a healthy one.
Fruits especially which are sour like the oranges should never be combined with milk, doing so irregular reaction takes place in the body, the ill effects of which can be seen on the skin.
Only the fruits which are very sweet like the ripe bananas and ripe mangoes may be combined with milk.
6.Eating fruits at night
Many people think that because fruits for healthy they can be consumed at any time of the day.
Well that’s not true it is recommended not to eat fruits post sunset as the body’s ability to simulate the nutrients from the fruits diminishes.
As fruit are high in sugar it may also lead to gain in weight.
Moreover fruits when consumed later in the evening may also cause acidity and made disturbed sleep cycles so make a habit to eat fruits before 6:00 p.m.
. these were some of the most common mistakes that people do while eating fruits.
Let us get clear on how when and what fruit to eat to get the maximum benefits.
When to eat fruits?
fruits should ideally be consumed in the morning empty stomach. If you start eating fruits in empty stomach it will play a major role in detoxifying the system. Also the nutrients in the fruits get properly absorbed in the body.
Fruits can also be consumed in between the meals as the morning or evening snack options just make sure to keep a gap of 2 hours before and after the meals.
How to eat fruits?
As discussed before if you want to get the maximum benefit from fruit avoid juice and start eating them as whole.
If at all you want to drink fruit juice do not just sculp it down in your throat, drink slowly so that your saliva also gets mixed along.
What fruit to eat?
Make it a rule, the fruit which grows locally is fully ripe and in season that fruit is best for you.
This will not only your body will get the required vitamins and minerals but also you can enjoy a variety of fruits throughout the year.
Truly fruits are the sweetest gift of nature all you need to do is, eaten the right way.
