Fruit is really something special. It’s hydrating. It’s sweet. It’s typically juicy and delicious. The best time to eat it is in small quantities, as a break from fasting or 30-minutes preceding a meal. This is so that your body will absorb the nutrients and you will enjoy the benefits optimally.
Eating one or two strawberries upon waking (after your initial dental-care routine), can help encourage your body for a successful and content day. I also like a few slices of chilled apple, or a selection of juicy blueberries.
Then, if you have spent some time sweating or if you plan to, having another small dose of fruit in the middle of the afternoon can be refreshing. For optimal results, you’ll want to eat fruit on a relatively empty stomach. What most people need to avoid, is eating large amounts of fruit and eating fruit after large meals. You want to avoid combining fruit with meat.
For some people, it’s best to eliminate fruit for a designated period of time, especially if you have weight loss goals, sugar sensitivities, or diabetes.
