User :   Hi ! I have been trying to eat a healthy diet for some time now. So, I have egg-whites, whole wheat toast, almonds, variety of fruits and fresh juice for breakfast. Also, lemon tea without sugar. Common sense wise this is very good, enough fibre, protien, omega-3 and vitamins and minerials.
But I read a few articles on the net which say that fruits should not be taken with other foods. Have them empty stomach and then after a gap eat breakfast. Is this true ?? i find this difficult to do as this takes a lot of time and i get late for work. Any advice ?
