This article explains the benefits of eating fruit! It will definitely change your mind if you think fruit is bad because of the sugar and carbohydrates. Remember: natural sugar is great for you! Do not eliminate it from your diet because you need it, darling. Just stay away from refined sugar.
“Fresh fruit offers so much more than the natural sugar it contains. This includes water, vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients—those naturally occurring plant compounds that have wide-ranging beneficial effects on the body. Where else can you get a package like that for about 75 calories per serving?”
