Sugars in Fruits After Meal

Eating fruit after a meal, especially a large meal, can be quite problematic. When fruit is consumed following a meal that is rich in fat and protein, the basic sugars in the fruit will remain in the stomach and ferment.

The end result of this process is usually some form of stomach discomfort depending on how large of a meal you consumed. While fruit requires very little digestion on its own, fruit mixed with a large meal can negatively alter that process. Consume fruits 30 minutes before or after meals will be a better choice.
