3 Antidotes to Overeating

By Amy Paturel, "3 Antidotes to Overeating," May/June 2008

These 3 foods will help fix the damage of a rich meal.


READER'S COMMENT:
"If you just "over" ate...should you really be hungry? So you really need to eat fruit after a big meal? Adding vinegar to your meal, because you know that you are going to "overeat"? ...Maybe plan on not overeating...instead of planning...

Are there any particular fruits recommended for diabetics in regards to these findings? I understand that all berries are the best as they do not contain as much sugar as say a banana or an apple. Are there any other fruits to look out for that do not have too many sugars in them?

I've heard and read that eating fruit with such dissimilar foods, as a dessert, makes digestion somewhat uneasy--even to the point that such a meal induces more fat storage than otherwise: Perhaps the practice is similar in some ways to eating heavy at night.

So, many experts disagree--they indicate that raw fruits (possibly excepting apples) are better as snacks than in meals. Fruits certainly are very high in fiber and in certain nutrients the body needs: Nonetheless, some experts wish for us to limit fruits (and alcoholic beverages) even more stringently--even to the point of elimination from one's diet--they indicate that the sugars aren't worth it....

I think I do better without the mentioned fruits, and most others, in meals....
