Homespun, here is the ext of one of those crazy e'mails which sometimes arrive from well meaning but (I hope) ill informed friends. Mind you I am not promoting or believe much of it but your Vegan wife might get a laugh out of it, a bit of it is probably true.
We all think eating fruits means just buying
fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths
It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat.
What is the correct way of eating fruits?
IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS! * FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.>
If you eat fruit like that, it will playa major role to detoxify your system,
supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.
FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD
.Let's say you eat two 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 into contact
with the food
in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.... So p lease
eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining -
every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian 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. 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=2 0all 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 research
on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits,
you have the Secret of beauty, longevity, health
, energy, happiness and normal weight.
When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up.
Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking
destroys all the vitamins.
But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly,
because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body.
Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!
