Eat fruits

It's long but very informative

We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?


If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

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

So please eat your fruits on an emptystomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining — every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian, (an Asian fruit) my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc — actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat!

Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these will NOT happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

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

But 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. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

KIWI: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

APPLE: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

GUAVA & PAPAYA: Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

Silva taunts Maia - UFC 112

"Saturday's Ultimate Fighting Championship show in Abu Dhabi broke ground in more ways than one. First outdoor show. First trip to the Middle East. First loss for BJ Penn as a lightweight in eight years. Lowest point in Dana White's tenure as UFC president. The lightweight title fight has been repeatedly dissected for the judges' scoring, the middleweight title fight roundly criticized for the champion's posturing."

"AS: I don't feel like I owe anyone an apology right now. Sometime's fights turn out good, sometimes they turn out bad.

- Anderson Silva at the UFC 112 post-fight press conference via Ariel Helwani.

So there you go. Despite his apology directly after the fight Anderson has gone ahead and pulled a 180. Silva also went on to spend a lot of time at the presser discussing the fact that his intention was to "punish" Demian Maia for "disrespecting" him as a fighter. Despite repeated requests to explain how he was disrespected by Maia, Silva did not give an answer.

One can only assume that the issue in Anderson's mind is that Maia acted "too superior" to the champion in terms of the ground game during the pre-fight interviews. Silva is a high level black belt and may have felt that Maia was not giving him an appropriate level of credit in that facet of the game.

The performance Silva gave certainly did not impress UFC president Dana White who sounds soured on the idea of the Silva/Georges St. Pierre superfight that was being pushed heading into today. Again from Ariel's tweets of the post fight festivities comes this quote from White:

"I don't want to see GSP vs. Silva after tonight. Silva might be the first champion fighting on a prelim. I don't want to see that shit."

Dana White "Embarrassed" by Silva's performance

Disappointing fight? Yes, but was well worth going to the event.
