Deputy Head of Clinical Nutrition Department at Max Healthcare Saket Delhi Dr. Rasika Mathur It is said that when we mix rock salt or black salt on cut fruits and consume it for 9 days, then it is not that beneficial for us. On the contrary, it can harm heart patients. On the other hand, diabetic patients should not consume sugar at all with fruits because sugar is already present in all fruits. Dr. Rasika Mathur told that salts like rock salt, chaat masala, rock salt, non salt do not contain iodine. This is called non iodized salt. Non-iodized salt is not healthy. It has a high amount of potassium, which causes damage when it reaches the body in excess. Too much potassium is not considered good for the heart. Digestion also gets spoiled by consuming too much of these salts. If you mix normal salt with fruit and eat lemon in it, then it does not harm, but if you use chaat masala or other spices in it, then all these are not good for our stomach. This may cause gastric problems.

Should diabetic patients eat fruits or not?
Dr. Rasika Mathur told that one should not keep fast for diabetic patients. Secondly, even if they keep fast, fruit should not be consumed much because sugar is already present in all fruits. He told that if you have to take fruits, then do not take more than one or two miles of fruit. In this also eat radish, carrot, lemon salad and eat it. By adding sourness to the fruit, there is a slight balance. But diabetic patients must eat once a day. During this, trans fat should not be eaten at all. When the diabetic patient is hungry, then the sugar will come down at that time, but as soon as the food is eaten, the sugar will increase rapidly. Therefore, if diabetic patients are keeping fast, then they must eat at least once a day. If you do not eat food, then you can eat something like sago khichdi once a day. Apart from this, you can also eat cheese in between. Radish, carrot etc. should be eaten
