I just learned it's NOT how much fruit we eat. It's about when we eat it. VERY IMPORTANTE!!! U need to have them with empty stomach. This way all their goodies get into our body. We usually have them after food which our body can't do jack with it. Your feedback along with supporting links
Often we snack when we are thirsty, not necessarily hungry. Fruits can help quench our thirst, while also offering a wonderful source of nutrients and natural fiber. Some fruits, like bananas, are higher in natural sugars, and should be eaten more sparingly if you are counting calories.
According to Dr. Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid Diet, eat "3-4 servings per day (one serving is equal to 1 medium size piece of fruit, ½ cup chopped fruit, ¼ cup of dried fruit)."
Note these healthier choices suggested by Dr. Weil: "Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, oranges, s, pink grapefruit, red grapes, plums, pomegranates, blackberries, cherries, apples, and pears-all lower in glycemic load than most tropical fruits."
Dr. Weil emphasizes that "Fruits are rich in flavonoids and carotenoids with both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Go for a wide range of colors, choose fruit that is fresh in season or frozen, and buy organic when possible." http://www.drweil.com/drw/ecs/pyramid/press-foodpyramid.html (more)
