Diet by Eating the Fruits at the Right Time
Five Color Fruits
Eat Fruits At The Right Time
Eat right, sleep well, and exercise regularly, those right ideas may not be enough to keep you healthy and fit if the timing is all wrong.
Fruits are good for you. However, taking them at the wrong time causes you more harm than good. Some people like to have fruit for breakfast, thinking it’s a healthy way to lose weight. The truth is that some fruits should not be taken on an empty stomach, such as banana, tomato, strawberry etc.
So what is the best time to eat your daily fruits? I suggest taking them in the morning, one hour after breakfast, or two hours before lunch. That’s the time you need some extra sugar in your body to help maintaining your energy level throughout the morning.
I, personally, take about 3-5 different kind of fruits daily (Five Color Fruits as I call them). Not only the platter looks prettier, each color also represents the rich nutrient it carries. Below are some examples of the Five Color Fruits:
White Color Fruits
Apple, pear, white peach, etc.
Green Color Fruits
Yellow Color Fruits
Orange, Pineapple, papaya, etc.
Red Color Fruits
Watermelon, Raspberry, Cherry
Black/Blue Color Fruits
My daily fruit platter contains 6 cherries, half an apple or pear or white peach, a kiwi, half an orange and 15-30 blueberries depends on the size of the berry.
Control the daily intake of fruits is also important. I once read in the World Daily Journal that a little girl loves to eat orange. She normally eats 6-8 daily. At the tender age of 13, she develops type 2 Diabetes.
Remember to wash the fruits thoroughly and place them in a clean container and the most important of all - wash your hands before eating.
Next time, I will talk about the right time to go to bed and exercise.
