Is There Such A Thing As Too Much Fruit?

The newest dietary guidelines suggest that you should strive to consume 7 to 12 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Only 3 to 5 of these servings should come from fruit. 

Fruits are an essential part of every diet but they should never be your only source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Fruits are a source of simple carbohydrates. When you eat a piece of fruit by itself, blood glucose levels may rise sharply, and this could create complications for diabetics.

Aim to pair your fruit servings with vegetable servings and a lean protein serving. This will be ideal for digestion, metabolism and blood glucose levels.
