Most people think that eating fruit along with their main meals is a good way to stay healthy. Without properly understanding the body's digestive cycle over a 24 hour period, many people consume fruit in a manner that will not bring them any nutritional benefit. Having lots of fruit with your main meals or eating it as a desert after meals is not the way fruit should be eaten.
In order for your body to get the maximum benefit of eating fruit you should follow the guidelines given below.
Fruit is digested in the intestine and not in the stomach. It is also rapidly digested and goes through the digestive system in around half an hour. The brain runs on glucose and fruit is the most efficient source of blood sugar. With sufficient fruit consumption your blood sugar levels normalize, allowing your body's hunger mechanism to be properly regulated and thus avoid over-eating and obesity.
