Eating FRUIT after a meal can cause digestive problems

This is because the fruit digests faster than the meal, as the body HAS to deal with the fruit sugars immediately.

It travels straight through the stomach into the intestines however as the meal takes longer to digest it blocks the fruit’s passage. The fruit lingering in the digestive tract then ferments and turns to acid. When the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to rot and ferment, and turning to acid as soon as the fruit and other digestive juices in the stomach make contact.

This can cause serious bloating gas and discomfort which in turn reduces your ability to absorb nutrients.

Therefore fruit should be consumed on an empty stomach, or at 2- 3 hours after a meal or 30 minutes before a meal.

The best time for fruit digestion is in the morning.
