柿子 六項提醒 必看 

 

 

 
吃柿子雖然有很多好處,但有幾點需要提醒:
1.
空腹不能吃就可避免胃柿石的形成。
 
2.
柿子皮不能吃  
 
3.
不要與含高蛋白的蟹、魚、蝦等食品一起吃
   
中醫學中,螃蟹與柿子都屬寒性食物,故而不能同食。從現代醫學的角度來看,含高蛋白的蟹、魚、蝦在鞣酸的作用下,很易凝固成塊,即胃柿石
 
4.
糖尿病人勿食
   
柿子中因含 10.8% 的糖類,且大多是簡單的雙糖和單糖 (蔗糖、果糖、葡萄糖即屬此類),因此吃後很易被吸收,使血糖升高。對于糖尿病人而言,尤其是血糖控制不佳者更是有害的。
 
5.
適可而止
   
柿而會影響食欲,並減少正餐的攝入。一般認為,不在空腹的情況下,每次吃柿子不超過 200克為宜。
 
6.
吃後漱口
   
柿子含糖高,且含果膠,吃柿子後總有一部分留在口腔裏,特別是在牙縫中,加上弱酸性的鞣酸,很易對牙齒造成侵蝕,形成齲齒,故而在吃柿子後宜喝幾口水,或及時漱口。 
 

 

Although there are many benefits of eating persimmon,  

but there are a few points that we must be aware of: 

1. Persimmons Cannot Be Eaten On An Empty Stomach.    

  Contains more tannin and pectin, in an empty stomach under the effect of gastric acid, lumps of various sizes will formed, if these lumps can not reach the pyloric intestine, it will remain in the stomach to form gastric persimmon stone.  The stone original is as small as apricots and persimmon seeds nu, but will tend to get larger if naturally expelled from the stomach, it will cause diospyrobezoar the digestive tract obstruction, resulting in upper abdominal pain, vomiting, and even vomiting blood and other symptoms. During surgery, persimmon stone as big as a fist was found in the stomach. If the food in the stomach then the persimmon stone formation in the stomach can be avoided . 

2. Persimmon Skin Should Not Be Eaten   

Some people feel that eating persimmon fruit together with the skin taste better than just eating the flesh by itself.  Scientifically this is not advisable because the vast majority of persimmon tannin in concentrated in the skin. If eaten together with its skin the formation of gastric persimmon stone is easier, especially when the astringent process is incomplete, as its skin contains more tannic acid.  

3. Do not eat persimmon together with high-protein crabs, fish, shrimp and other foods  

  In Chinese medicine, crab and persimmon are considered “cold foods”, therefore they cannot be eaten together. From the perspective of modern medicine, crab, fish and shrimp contains high level of protein and thus under the effect of the tannic acid, it is easy to solidified into blocks, namely, stomach persimmon stone.  

4. Diabetics Should Not Eat Persimmon    

  Persimmon has 10.8%  sugars content, and most are simple pairs of sugar and simple sugars (sucrose, fructose, glucose is such), which can easily be absorbed by our body after eating which may result in hyperglycemia. For diabetic people, especially those with poor glycemic control, it is even more harmful. 

5. Enough is enough   

The tannic acid in persimmon together with dietary calcium, zinc, magnesium, iron and other minerals form compounds that cannot be absorbed by the body so that these nutrients can not be used and therefore eating persimmons can easily lead to a lack of these minerals. And because there is more sugar in persimmon, eating the same amount of persimmon compared to apples or pears will make one fill full faster hence will affect one’s appetite, and reduce the intake of meals. Generally, with an empty stomach, it is advisable that not more than 200 grams of persimmon should be taken.   

6. Mouthwash after eating   

  Persimmon has is high in sugar and contains pectin. After eating persimmon there will be some of the fruits remaining in the mouth, especially in between the teeth. With the acidic properties of the high tannic acid it is easy to cause tooth decay, the formation of dental caries. Therefore after eating persimmons it is advisable to drink some water or to rinse our mouths.    

  

 

EATING FRUITS the right time

EATING FRUITS …….

fruits

It’s long but very informative

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 watermelon 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!
