We all love fruit right? In efforts to make healthy choices, sometimes it’s a lot more tempting to reach for a juicy mango then a stalk of celery. But according to some nutrition experts, fruit is best eaten on its own. A lot of people complain that when they eat fruit it gives them stomach pains, or worse, the runs. That’s because fruit is so easily digested, if eaten with other foods its pathway is blocked and it begins fermenting, causing the unpleasant rumblings.
There’s not much research to prove whether this is true or not, but enough anecdotal evidence exists that it’s worth considering. How your own body feels is always the most important factor, research or not.
Have you ever experience that type of reaction when eating fruit? No need to raise your hands (embarrassing right? : ), but if you have, try experimenting with just eating it by itself.
For breakfast, try eating only fruit. You may feel hungry fairly soon, but eating the fruit by itself, because it is so easily digestible, could help you avoid embarrassing mishaps later in the day.
