We  all think eating fruit means just buying fruit,  
cutting it up and popping it into our mouths.  It's
not that easy. It's important to know how  and when
to eat fruit. What's  the correct way to eat fruit?  


Eating  fruit like that plays a major role in  detoxifying
your system, supplying you with a  great deal of energy
for weight loss and other  life activities. 

Let's say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit.
The slice of fruit is ready to go  straight through the stomach
into the intestines, but it's 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.   

Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal! You've
heard people complain:  Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when
I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc. This will  not
happen if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. Fruit mixes with
the putrefying other  food and produces gas.  Hence, you bloat!  

There's no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic,
because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert
Shelton who did research on this matter. If you  have mastered the correct
way of eating fruit,  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 the  concentrated juice from the cans.
Don't drink juice that has been heated. Don't eat cooked fruit; you don't
get the nutrients at all. You  get only the taste. Cooking destroys all of
the vitamins. 

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! Eat fruit and drink fruit juice for just 3 days, and you
will be surprised when your friends say  how radiant you look!

Drinking  Cold water after a meal = Cancer!
Can you  believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It's nice to have a  cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water  will solidify the oily stuff that you've just  consumed, which slows digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break  down and be absorbed by the intestine faster  than the solid food. It will line the intestine.  Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to  cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
