    Default fruit; how much

    In the UK the citizens have been recommended to eat 4 different fruits a day. My diet includes at least 4 fruits a day but sometimes I eat bananas twice or three times a day (if I dont have any other fruit). Is this a problem?

    One trainer pointed out that ppl dont get fat eating fruit and veggies - so dont worry about the calories when you feel hungry just pop a fruit or have a salad.

    One person who might agree is Susan Kleiner as in her book Power Eating her mass building diet plan includes 12 fruits.

    Fruit comes in different forms - such as iced juice bar , pure fruit spread, fruity yoghurt.

    Opinions welcomed.

    Seriously; fruit is high in sugars so if you're trying to burn fat you actually want to limit yourself. Least that's what I've read, so I stick to a couple pieces a day. no limit of course with veggies..
    When it's all over said and done, you're gonna regret the things you 'didn't do', more than the things you did.

    Actually people in the UK have been advised to try and get at least 5 fruit and veg a day; that means combined, so not 5 of each.

    However, there has been talk, for some time now, that people should be consuming around 9-10+ portions of fruit and veg.

    There is nothing wrong with fruit and veg, and the more total calories a person eats, the more fruit and veg should be incorporated. If a female (small) was consuming 1500 cals a day, it stands to reason that she'd eat less fruit and veg than a male consuming 4500 calories a day...otherwise meats and other carbohydrate forms as well as fats would have to be cut out just to permit her to get the adequate recommended portions of fruit (since they can contain higher caloires than most veggies).

    Just use common sense.

    Too much of anything is bad.... if it's in your calorie limits enjoy, but don't neglect your fats and proteins

    I honestly would get tired of fruit if i ate a bunch everyday... except bananas... i have nearly 2 a day on weekdays :-)

    Fruit may be "high" in sugars (fructose) but it is slow absorbing as it is high in fibre. I would avoid fruit juices and eat the fruit - especially berries.

    So the trainer who wrote ppl dont get fat eating fruit and veggies is totally wrong. (thats what I thought). Having 11 fruits a day is all right assuming I dont exceed my calorie requirement.

    11 fruits could be ; a cup of orange juice, 4 tablespoons of raisins, 1 large banana,
    2 cups of pineapple, 1 cup of strawberries, 1 cup of strawberry yoghurt.

    Essentially yes, but i honestly don't think you need that much, but if it suits you, then go for it!

    I eat fruit when I get cravings for sugar (which I assume is an indication of low glycogen levels). I would say if you are worried about eating fruit that is already a good sign in itself that you're taking your diet seriously

    Eat it when you feel like having something sweet. Apples are also great as they are 70+% water and fill you up well.

    The recommended intake of fruits "and" vegetables is five pieces per day, and preferably different fruits and vegetables, as different fruits and veg contain different combinations of nutrients, minerals, fiber and vitamins

    Remember fruit contains sugar.

    The sugar contained in fruit is called fructose. Many people have come to believe that fructose is bad for you and will promote fat gain. This is simply not true. Fructose metabolizes differently than other types of sugar but it is still a great choice for carbohydrates. Fructose will restore liver glycogen levels quickly and muscle glycogen stores slowly. Although fructose is technically a sugar it does not cause a spike in blood sugar like many other sugars. This makes fruit and excellent choice for daily consumption.
