When Is the Right Time to Have a Fruit? And Why You Should Avoid It After a Meal?

Undoubtedly eating fruits contribute to good health and provides a range of other benefits for your body. Nevertheless, you must follow some simple guidelines so that you eat fruits the right way. Eating fruits as and when you like doesn't do much good. Therefore, it is essential to know when and how to consume fruits in order to fully benefit from it. 

Right time to eat fruits:

  1. Eating fruits first thing in the morning is preferable as you gain all the nutrients your body requires, which keeps you nourished and energized. Eating fruits on an empty stomach promotes good health and helps you shed the extra kilos. Additionally, it also prevents digestive problems and keeps you in good shape as your body fully absorbs all the vitamins, good carbohydrates and fiber present in the fruits.
  2. Eating fruits between breakfast and lunch is also an option that can help you maintain a proper diet. If you choose to have your fruit helping after breakfast, it is essential to adjust the proportion and time of both the meals accordingly. A fruit helping after breakfast should keep you full for at least two hours, thereby ensuring proper digestion. Make sure you balance your meals accordingly and do not end up overeating. 

Why fruits should be avoided after meals:

  1. Even though fruits have high nutrition value, it also contains calories. If you consume a bowl of fruits just after your meal, chances are that your body may get more calories than it requires. No matter how healthy fruits are, eating them after meals can cause significant weight gain. Also, it is essential to keep in mind to not make your diet fruit heavy as then your body is deprived of nutrition present in meats, vegetables, dairy products and whole grains.
  2. It is of utmost importance that you avoid eating fruits just before going to bed. Fruits contain a lot of sugar which can, in turn, increase your energy levels thereby, keeping you awake when you need to sleep instead.

Less weight does not cause a problem with infertility, unless it is due to illness like tb etc. For 4'11" your weight of 45 is ok. It can be increased by few kg, but less than 50 is best for your height. So do not worry about your weight. At the same time you must worry about your husband's weight which is 112, and he needs to severely start nutrition based dieting and exercises. Your abortion happened and it is just 2 months since then, wait for another 1-2 months and then try again. The back pain, if occasional can be dealth with pain killers, but if it frequent, you may see a orthopedic surgeon. For your infertility seek the help of a gynecologist who can guide you through the conception and then the pregnancy monitoring too.

Can premature delivery be predicted? I have a friend who is very thin and is 5 months pregnant. The doctor has told that the fetus is not developing properly and there is a good chance that the child may be born with some disabilities. The doctor has given the approximate delivery date of December, where as she will be in her 9th month in February. I just wanted to ask whether doctor can predict such premature delivery?

Preterm delivery is birth occurring before 37 completed weeks of gestation. Preterm birth is the primary cause of morbidity and mortality in children especially if this occurs before 34 weeks of gestation. If preterm birth could be predicted and treated accordingly, this would greatly reduce mortality, morbidity and associated costs. There have been many attempts to develop an accurate and efficient method to predict preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) and preterm labor that leads to spontaneous preterm birth (SPB). However, the initial signs and symptoms are most often mild and may even occur in normal pregnancies, making early detection rather difficult. The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the current methods employed in predicting preterm birth occurring due to preterm labor and PPROM. Among these methods are risk scoring systems, cervical/vaginal screening for fetal fibronectin, cervical assessment by ultrasonography, uterine activity monitoring, biomarkers such as endocrine factors, cytokines and enzymes, fetal DNA and genetic polymorphism. SPB is multifactorial, and so it is highly unlikely that a single test can accurately predict SPB. A combination of biological markers is also reviewed in the estimation of the risk of preterm delivery. Inaccurate measurement of cervical length or measurement at the wrong gestational ages has the potential to result in many false-positive results, which will lead to mistreatment and overtreatment of women. We do not want to have another clinical scenario similar to the rollout of fetal heart rate monitoring in which our testing has resulted only in increased maternal morbidity (ie, increased cesarean delivery) without a demonstrated improvement in neonatal outcome. Hence, pay good heed to the technique and timing of cervical length measuremen.

Hi lybrate-user, your pregnancy tests done twice, both negative, so I do not think you are pregnant. But as you are worried, you may go for blood examination for beta hcg or tvs ultrasound for confirmation.

You much check the cause of nipple discharge as this is abnormal and may cause menstrual and pregnancy problems.

It's something that you can have control over. Weight loss can help. Hormonal balance is the key. Weight loss with proper exercises like yoga and cardio are very helpful. Drink water. Nowadays most of the females are suffering from PCOS because of the lifestyle changes. Keeping PCOS in control can prevent a lot of lifestyle diseases like diabetes.
