Is the sugar in fruit bad for you?  I've been told to try and stay away from sugar as best I can but to also try and eat as much fruit as I can.  I was at the grocery store today and was going to buy some pineapples but when I looked at the nutrition label it stated that there were 24g of sugar!!

oh my goodness....eat what you want! fructose...too much in concentration may cause some diarrhea....there are some who totally have an intolerance to it, but try not to get wrapped up in the fearmongering regarding sugar.

Your body needs sugar for fuel....remember all foods are converted into glucose anyway...

Pineapple is good to eat after a meal because of the enzymes that naturally occur in it.

make sure you wash it firstly before you cut it up, however, but don't put it unwashed on the cutting board you'll be using to cut it...bumpy surfaces can hold all sorts of stuff and you really don't know who's handled it before you have...etc.

Enjoy.

Personally, I dont think you should ever eat fruit after any meal of food, as it will just putrify and rot and turn into alcohol and rob your body of oxygen, and create a nasty enviornment in your gut.. food combining has a lot of scientific evidence and studies behind it to back it up, so its not Just my opinion, but proven..

if yoour in a flair, you may want to get bromelian extract in supplement version from the health food store, as pinapple is acidic fruit/citrus fruit and causes a really rapid detox, so to a sensitive and raw tender colon this may do more harm and cause discomfort..

the fruits you may want to get are papaya, banana, mangos, try blue berrries, they may not be as desirable in a flair tho..

But yes, fruit is the easiest to digest, sinc eit takes very little time to be broken down by the body it is an instant fuel, google food combining, and you will get a better idea of what I am speaking of.
you want to create a good balance in your digestive tract, not an abundance of bad bacteria. so food combining I think would be desirable for everyone with IBD.

OMG....one would NOT want frementing rotting bodies. I thought that only happened when one was dead....

well, make up ones one mind rather than the body rotting-mongering then.

Bromelain is a good supplemental enzyme to take after eating, however...I wouldn├Ęt concern myself with the fruit-fear part..

The word is flare...not flair....although one could flare with flair!

I ate pineapples for a few days in a row, and that did not sit well with my gut! But when I eat it occasionally, I don't have any problems. So start off slow and make sure it doesn't bother you.

Actually eating pineapple, kiwi, mangos or papaya after each meal will not have any negative effect it will infact aid with breaking down the meal you ate (the natural digestive enzymes in those particular fruits are naturally designed for that purpose) it makes less work for the intestines therefore making it easier on your system to aid with food digestion.

After each meal if you eat any of the above mentioned fruits it'll aid with your digestion.

The first paragraph has been deleted because of disrespect toward another member.  Flaming and disrespect are against the Forum Rules. 
And, again believe what you want, but food combining has been around for a long time, researched, studied, there is much evidence that Your body produces different digestive enzymes depending on what you eat, starchs, proteins, fats, sugars, etc. etc.

When you eat fruit, regardless of what kind, it only sits in the stomach for about 20minutes or so, sweet fruit, 30 - 45 minutes, watermelon 20minutes, sub acid and acid fruits 20 - 30 minutes, it then goes to the intestines for absorption. When you eat a steak, and some potatoes, with some cheese, these sit i your stomach for hours. your body cannot digest protein, and dairy at the same time, let alone protein and carbs like potatoes etc. etc.
When you pile those things up, and then eat a fruit, papaya, kiwi, pinapple, No it does not aide in digestion any longer, it sits there, rots, turns into alcohol, steals oxygen from your cells and brain, basically a poison sitting in your gut. Now if you eat those fruits on an EMPTY stomach, then yes, it will aide in cleansing your bowels and your digestion. You will feel really good, this information has all been studied for so many years, its not just somthing I am throwing out there, you can research it yourself. But telling people that it is not true, that is only miss informing them, and causing more harm by giving them ideas of eating those types of foods and then piling fruit on top of there meal.

Believe what you want herbalgerbal but While doing research on enzymes I found out that Papaya and Pineapple are the top two fruits for enzymes due to Bromelain. Bromelain has widely been investigated for its' digestive enzymes. These enzymes particularly target the breakdown of protein which eases digestion. A raw cup of pineapple is full of this goodness. Pineapple enzymes are also good for the blood and are thought to be anti-inflammatory. It is suggested Pineapple enzymes limit the tendency for blood clots and also improve circulation through the arteries.

I'll try to make it easier for you to understand, as I said before pineapple, kiwi, papaya and mango are the specific fruits that aid with digestion I didn't say all or any fruits. Have you ever heard of the supplement form of digestive enzymes?

BTW, I never said pile them on either after a meal, about 1/2 cup is sufficient, don't twist my words around, if you're confused about what I'm saying simply ask rather than assume.

You (herbalgerbals) keep saying that there is scientific proof that food combining works, etc, etc, etc. Can you please post links to some scientific studies to show this? And I'm not talking about a website that says there is scientific proof...I would like to see the actual studies. I'm an agricultural researcher, so for me to believe things like this I need to be able to read a study that was correctly designed and carried out.

It is possible for multiple, even conflicting, scientific theories to be in existence at any one time, each supported by published research.

The fact that the research has been published doesn't mean that a theory has been proved as being 100% correct. Research is published to fuel further debate and more research.

In other words, the fact that you've read about a theory in a book or on the internet doesn't mean that it is right. The best we can do, as educated patients and consumers, is try to discern which theory is most likely to be accurate: in other words, which is the most accepted theory, which has the best evidence to support it and also, importantly, what method of eating seems to work best for our own body.

Please, people, no more bickering.

Mangoes are high in prebiotic dietary fiber.
Pineapple contains a proteolytic enzyme bromelain, which breaks down protein.
Kiwi has high levels of dietary fiber.

Trying to see how those are bad things? How is it that those fruits 'rot' in your stomach if eaten with anything else?

You're also talking about two different kinds of sugars, the sugar in fruit is complex sugar. Way better for you than a candy bar!

pb4 I understand what you are saying, perfectly. I take bromelian, and curcuminoids daily, I also take digestive enzymes, Im not claiming that BROMELIAN causes any disturbance, its other substances in the fruit.. like the Sugars that need to be digested and absorbed quickly...
So, I to am sorry for the confusion, I should of clarified, I take bromelian and digestive support after / during my meals, but eating the entire fruit can cause gas, bloating, and discomfort becuase it doesnt get to the intestines for absorption, instead it sits and rots and putrifies, but ofcourse, believe or do what you think works. Im only here to share my opinions and experiences. =]

fruitgirl, I understand where you are comming from, the only way I could share anything with you is thru the internet obviously, so I have no problem sharing websites etc. that show proper food combining theory, research, studies, evidence, etc. etc. I also have no problem sending you an E-book I have, no charge obviously, wich has pleanty of doctors, licensed in dietary nutrition, medical health, who work with the raw food diet, have helped heal, or sorry I will say bring many patients into remission, following a frutarian diet.. I dont know how else I can really prove any of this to you, other then the studies, research etc. I have read and explored online, I guess its been my experience that what I am claiming and speaking about REally is effective and has helped me greatly.. maybe you can try it as well?
It would only take one day and Im sure you would be able to tell a difference or not..
all I know, personal experience, I have cleared all ulcerations, and all my inflamamtion by following a dominant fruitarian diet, and proper food combining.. as ivy6 stated I agree with her, there is research to both sides of the story.. Ive even read a website called biblelife.com that claims an all red meat diet and very little veggies is the way to cure IBD, ad that fruits and grains and carbs/starchs are unacceptable to the human body.. so I guess its just what catches your eye, and combines well with your experience.. ya know?

I have no problem with fruit. I eat fruit all day till around 3pm, and that is all.. I know there is a big difference between fruit sugar and refined processed sugar..

Im saying, that your body cannot digest protein, fats, dairy, breads, grains, and sugar(fruit) at once...

your body secretes different digestive juices in your stomach, we only have one stomach.. and when you eat different foods, it must digest them, at different rates, with different digestive juices, fruit does not need to sit in the stomach for very long, it goes to the smaller intestine where it is broken down and absorbed, wich doesnt take much time at all, becuase it is sugar. every food is ultimatly broken down into sugar/amino acids and absorbed in the smaller intestine, and held up in the stomach for digestion when there is an excess of food..

when you eat these sugars they sit on top of meat, meat takes 4 - 6 hours to digest thru the stomach and into the smaller intestine, fruit in dark moist place like the stomach will turn into alcohol, and putrify and rot etc.

This is why a lot of people experience bloating, digestive distress, GAS, discomfort and smelly bowel movements..

You can research this all you want a the library, just google proper food combining and you will get a much better idea of what this is about.. but its not crazy, its has Lots of evidence, maybe you just gotta try it for one day, and see how it goes for you..

this is just what someone has written about food combining, I guess its a pretty accurate over view, you can get an idea of what I am talking about, if its interesting to you, maybe you an look it up at the library in some of there many medical books.

I think that what we can tolerate is individual for each of us . I personally am ok with cooked fruit and berries in moderation. However last week I had one of my worst attacks set off by eating a nectarine . Nectarines, peaches, mangos I will be staying away from

herbalgerbal, I speak from experiance as well, I eat pineapple everyday (among all other fruits as well) and I eat pineapple or kiwi after each meal and since dooing so I find that it definitely aids with digestion (regardless of the meal I've eaten) and does not cause any issues you described above.

Veggies contain sugars as well and cause no issues when eaten with meals either. Like I said before I never suggested piling fruits on top of a meal just eaten, 1/2 cup aprox of pineapple or a whole kiwi (cuz they're pretty small) is sufficient. However for snacks I do eat a large peice of watermelon or bowl of strawberries or bowl of mixed fruits. My diet mainly consists of fruits, veggies, fish/seafoods, chicken, all veggies and on occassion beef (in the form of steak usually), grains, nuts/seeds, water and chamomile tea only so I eat super healthy on a daily basis since altering my diet from junky processed foods to how I eat/drink now. I don't get gassy (as many do, even healthy people) from beans or cabbage. I use only Stevia or honey as a sweetner when needed and consume extra virgine olive oil every single day.

Even with my degree of flaring right now I promise I do not have foul smelling stools and I have very little gas (typically only a little at night time) so I'm obviously doing things right with my diet.

That wiki article actually says that there is basically nothing in biological or medical science to support food combining. I also found this passage interesting:

"With this said, there are thousands of testimonials by people who claim that they have experienced improvements in several digestive related health conditions including acid reflux, bloating, stomach ache, gas emissions, and fatigue experienced after eating. Some of these conditions, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, may have a psychosomatic component in some individuals, and so are particularly succeptible to the placebo effect."

As it's commonly known that stress can influence IBD and that many IBDers have IBS as well, this makes sense to me.

I'm not saying that the only reason food combining works for you is because of a psychosomatic effect, but I really do believe in the power of one's mindset when it comes to health and how one feels.

The liver converts fructose to glucose. A high level of fructose can tax the liver, causing fatty liver.

Bananas, pineapple, and berries are safe for me to eat. They have a low ratio of fructose / glucose. I will also sometimes have water with lemon added to it. Oranges, grapefruit, and kiwis are also considered safe.

These give me diarrhea: honey, apples, pears, peaches, cherries, apricots, nectarines, grapes, melons, mangos, papayas, persimmon, plumes, prunes, raisins, star fruit, dried fruits, fruit juices and jams. They are either high in fructose or/and contain sorbitol.
Joy - 47 yrs and counting; Colitis Dec 06 (also have IBS); Currently in remission

Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

Lexapro (for stress), Probiotics and Vitamins, Anti-inflammatory foods, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, No HFCS, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners -- Fecal transplantation worked, Prednisone stopped working, Colazal stopped working, Asacol stopped working

Then do what you believe works for you pb4, but that doesnt mean I will stop sharing my ideas, experiences, studies, and reads etc.

I find it very useful, and Im not sure if Ive stated it or not, but there is research that leans both ways about food combining. So Im sticking to what I feel sits right in nature..

It boils down to different people will believe different things. Many if not most european countries always follow fresh fruit after their dinner so it's certainly not unheard of nor does it mean it will bother the gut.

Keep in mind herbalgerbals that you're sharing your experiances and what you believe just like the rest of us and that doesn't mean we are all going to be on the same page about everything all the time either so if you want people to respect you then you have to respect back.

When I orignially wrote this.... "Actually eating pineapple, kiwi, mangos or papaya after each meal will not have any negative effect it will infact aid with breaking down the meal you ate (the natural digestive enzymes in those particular fruits are naturally designed for that purpose) it makes less work for the intestines therefore making it easier on your system to aid with food digestion. After each meal if you eat any of the above mentioned fruits it'll aid with your digestion.".....

It was not to argue or prove you or anyone else wrong, it's simply sharing MY experiance and the knowledge I have about it.

pb is absolutely correct and said it very well.  Different regimes may not work the same in other people, whether it's UC or in many other conditions.  The point of HW is sharing experience and knowledge and respecting what other members post.  Being confrontational about posts or trying to contest another member's post is not only disrespectful but against the rules.  If we don't agree with a post or that member, we should ignore the post or ignore the member.  If a member becomes a bully, then any of us (mods or not) can report him or her to Admin.  HW is not a platform for our personal agenda.  We always have the option of communicating off the Forum through email if our email addresses are listed under our member names in the left column.  So, let's hope the posts continue in a positive and information way.  Thanks.

Shadam - I eat all kinds of fruit at random times during the day. It doesn't negatively affect me. I guess just try it out and see how it affects you. If you're flaring really badly, you might want to stick to "softer" fruits like bananas, applesauce, canned peaches and pears, etc. versus stuff with seeds or skins.
