EATING FRUIT 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? IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS! * FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH . 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 empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining - every time I eat water-melon I burp, when I eat durian 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?

Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium. 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. Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can u believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE': (THIS IS NOT A JOKE!) Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive... A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life. Read this...It could save your life!! 'HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE': Let's say it's 6.15 pm and you're driving home. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself. Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, deep and prolonged, as when producing

sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. This allows the heart attack victim to get to a hospital.

Ik heb te veel cholesterol: welke voedingsmiddelen kan ik best vermijden?

Wanneer je cholesterolgehalte te hoog is, kan je best de 'slechte' vetten vermijden en meteen op zoek gaan naar een dieet dat arm is aan cholesterol. Het spreekt vanzelf dat dergelijke maatregelen niet steeds gemakkelijk vol te houden zijn. Je vindt hieronder verklaringen en argumenten. Voedingsmiddelen vermijden die cholesterol bevatten 'Slechte' vetzuren vermijden

Voedingsmiddelen vermijden die cholesterol bevatten
De eerste maatregel lijkt heel logisch: vermijd voedingsmiddelen die zelf cholesterol bevatten. Het gaat uitsluitend om producten van dierlijke oorsprong. Al wat plantaardig is, bevat

fytosterol, dat in de darmen de opname van cholesterol belemmert. De voedingsmiddelen die de meeste cholesterol bevatten zijn: -eigeel -orgaanvlees (hart, lever, nieren...) -vetstoffen van dierlijke oorsprong: boter, reuzel, slagroom, ganzen- en eendenvet, spek -fijne vleeswaren -schaaldieren: garnalen, krab, langoest, langoustine, kreeft -volle melk en afgeleide producten zoals kaas die allemaal rijk zijn aan verzadigde vetten. -vlees.

'Slechte' vetzuren vermijden
De benaming 'slechte vetzuren' groepeert de verzadigde vetzuren en de vetzuren in levensmiddelen die industrieel werden bereid. Al deze vetten verhogen het risico op hart- en vaatziekten. De verzadigde vetzuren Zij hebben de eigenschap te stollen op kamertemperatuur en zijn moeilijk uit het menselijk lichaam te verdrijven. Zij hebben bovendien de neiging om zich vast te zetten op de wand van de slagaders. Zij verhogen de viscositeit van het bloed en dus ook de kans op de vorming van bloedklonters in de slagaders. Verzadigde vetzuren vindt men voornamelijk in de volgende voedingsmiddelen: -vet vlees: ribstuk, ribbetjes, schapenvlees, fijne vleeswaren -zuivelproducten: boter, kaas, room, gebak op basis van zuivelproducten -sommige plantaardige producten: palmolie, kokosolie, cacaoboter. De frituuroliën De hoge temperaturen tasten de vetzuren aan, zodat deze uiterst kankerverwekkend worden en schadelijk voor de slagaders. Vetzuren en hydrogenering Hydrogenering is een industrieel proces waarbij oliën stollen in contact met waterstof, wat hun behandeling vereenvoudigt. Zo worden onverzadigde vetzuren die normaal vloeibaar zijn en die heilzaam zijn voor de hart- en bloedvaten omgevormd tot voor de gezondheid schadelijke verzadigde vetzuren. Vetzuren en shortening Plantaardige oliën worden aangelengd met verzadigde dierlijke oliën en vervolgens

gehydrogeneerd tot een vast vet. Deze methode vereenvoudigt de bereiding en verbetert de stevigheid van industrieel bereide taarten en gebakjes. Vetzuren en isomerisatie Deze vetzuren ontstaan wanneer plantaardige oliën rijk aan meervoudig onverzadigde vetzuren gehydrogeneerd worden. Deze methode wijzigt de structuur van de vetzuren en verhoogt hun hardheid. Zij stollen dus ook op kamertemperatuur, net zoals de verzadigde vetzuren. Maar zodra hun structuur gewijzigd is ? zij worden dan transvetzuren genoemd ? krijgen deze vetzuren andere eigenschappen: er treedt een stijging op van de 'slechte' cholesterol, een daling van de 'goede' en de kans op de vorming van bloedklonters in de slagaders verhoogt. Opgelet, de transvetten worden niet verplicht vermeld op de verpakkingen. Zij worden beschouwd als onverzadigde vetten, terwijl zij hun eigenschappen verloren hebben en omgekeerd de eigenschappen van verzadigde vetzuren aangenomen hebben. Voedingsmiddelen die 'slechte' omgevormde vetzuren bevatten (hoge temperatuur, hydrogenering of isomerisatie): -margarines -in frituurvet gebakken frietjes, oliebollen, gepaneerde voedingsmiddelen -patisseriegebakjes, aperitiefkoekjes -industrieel bereid gebak (cookies, muffins, patisserieroom,...) -industrieel bereide croissants, chocoladebroodjes,... -vet vlees (schapenvlees, varkensvlees, sommige stukken rundvlees) -bereidingen op basis van industriële vetten.
