I get so confused when it comes to the myths v. realities of eating fruit. I understand that some types contain more sugar than others but how much is too much? And isn't the fact that since fruit is found in nature its a whole food and okay to eat? Even if you have more than one piece a day? Is it true that it "rots" in your stomach, produces gas and shouldn't be eaten with other foods, rather as a snack by itself?
fruit is nature's candy. and with candy, moderation is key. i'd say keep consumption down to 1-2 servings of fruit a day.
fruit contains a LOT of sugar and is pretty acidic. while the sugar is good b/c it's natural, you still don't want to be eating a ton of it. and too much fruit is very corrosive to your teeth! just ask raw foodists who eat fruit all day.
