        I keep my fruit consumption down to 1 to 2 servings a day, and usually a cup of berries or these days, 1 Spartan apple or 1 pear. Sometimes I'll have 1 banana besides, but not every day.

It doesn't matter if it comes from a candy bar or a piece of fruit (with fruit being just a tad better due to more fiber and vitamins). But that doesn't negate the sugar.
          Comments like this and in this thread were why i was seeking help on my thread about hunger. We all know to avoid veggie oils, commercial/added sugar, and grains. But apparently dairy and fruit and starches are off limits too! Steaks and salads and bacon for life hehe

          But really, is one glass of apple juice the same as one apple? A banana is bad or poisonous for us? Why is a tomato or carrot better for my body than a pear?

            Well, it would take way more than one apple to make a glass of apple juice. Yesterday I made a smoothie with 5 strawberries, a banana and a half a cup of coconut water and it gave me about 10 oz of smoothie.

            Dairy, fruit and starches aren't off limits by the way. And who on earth says bananas are poisonous? Who are you quoting? Someone in this thread? (which by the way is a year old.)

                    So I guess that cavemen who happened to live where there was a large amount of fruit available as a food source were pretty much destined to turn into fat, sugar addicted tubs of lard.

                      A subsistence living is a LITTLE different that what we experience in modern times... dontchathink.

                        They also would have spend many, many hours outside getting sunshine (reduces inflammation) when it was available and doing a lot more moving around.

                          And I'd think that once the cold weather rolled in, the fruit would be scarce.

                            Or when the fish swam by they'd probably throw the fruit away and grab their nets. I know I would.

                              I've increased my fructose intake a lot over the past two months - probably threefold - and I'm really starting to increase my body temperature. I could feel my thyroid dropping from a lack of fruit and salt, and increasing both substantially has done wonders. No more chills after meals from all the meat and vegetables. It's too bad people avoid fructose. I have every reason to believe fruit sugar is very good for you. Less vegetables, more fruit = stronger thyroid, faster metabolic rate, warmer body temperature, stronger lifts, better digestion. And fruit tastes awesome.

                                For you, perhaps, but 30% of the population malabsorbs it in varying degrees. And it totally stops my digestion. The fact that such a large percentage can't make use of fructose (unless it's bound to glucose) would indicate to me that it isn't nearly as important as you make it out to be. Some can handle it just fine, but many have issues with it.
