Why not eating fruit after the meals? The answer is in the book "Fit for life". Because fruit is digested ever so quickly and then it sits on top of the undigested food from your main meal, fermenting, and causing gas, bloating and burning in the stomach from the alcohol produced during this unwanted stay. All the other food takes longer to digest so it won't move to the next part of the intestine for very long.


Thanks for sharing. Question though: Why is it we shouldn't eat fruit after a meal and only before?


you're the best!


You guys do a wonderful job! Keep up the good work!!!


These tips are great. I only wonder if you have any tips for ending eating at 7pm. If I don't have my first meal until midday, this doesn't leave much time for a eating. What kind of eating schedule do raw foodists keep? And there is something so comforting about a bedtime snack. Any help would greatly appreciated.
