Servings Of Fruits Per Day

3 posts in this topic

In general, I think fruits are bad for you (fructose causes lots of problems), but I wonder how much is safe to eat?

Probably best to stay away from fruits... but its hard to eat fat all the time, makes me feel weird

Fructose has beneficial effects on metabolism in the amounts found in fruits. Fructose at higher quantities without the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and fiber found in fruits can cause problems such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. But what I just described is basically just soda. Something like 34g of fructose a day has the beneficial effects. So just for the beneficial effects, it seems like one should eat several pieces of fruit a day, say 1-2 at each meal.

Depends on the fruit, but how about 3?


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
