Fruit has the highest water content of any of the food groups, and supplies you with vital vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids. Because fruit breaks down the fastest in your system it supplies you with energy that can be used for immediate fuel. Fruit increases your vitality. When you eat fruit follow this very simple rule: eat fruit on an empty stomach.
If you think you’re doing the heathy choice when you go for the fruit salad for dessert, you’re just going to make digestive trouble for yourself. Fruit breaks down the quickest of all foods. If it has to sit on top of foods that take longer to digest it will ferment and acidify the whole meal.
