Is Fruit Really Bad For You?

August 18, 2013

I have read so many conflicting things about whether or not fruit is really bad for you. Some folks say most fruit passes right through you or digests in 90 minutes or so while other foods take much longer so that’s supposed to be good. Other people say it is nothing but sugar and should be avoided at all costs because sugar is bad. I’m having a hard time fighting the cultural beating-in of the notion that, well, fruit is good food. I’m really looking for some comments here, I certainly feel better when I have some fruit in my diet (bananas and pineapple specifically) but I really don’t want to sacrifice all the weight loss work I’ve done by eating stuff I think is good for me but really isn’t.  Thoughts? Am I just being overly obsessive here? Probably.
