There are different opinions regarding whether a person should eat fruits before or after a meal. Some of their opinions are based on their personal diets and while it is true that fruits should be taken on an empty stomach is a myth, professionals still recommend that a person should eat fruits around 30 minutes before a meal since fruits contain sugar which takes time to break down and be digested hence, if it is taken shortly before or after a meal, the nutrients that we can get from fruits will be wasted.

This recommendation is based upon the fact that fruits taken after a meal can cause digestive problems and fiber, which is one of the nutrients which can be found on fruits, helps slow down digestion.
