Fruits should be separated from meals

Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

Very basic question, which is very important too. I am definitely happy to answer such question

Fruits have to be separated from at least any other food that is fruits to be taken at east one hour before or two hour after meals as nutrients of fruits will not be absorbed properly

Fruits already contains lots of fluid so there in no need to take fluid with fruits

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too.
