  • Most nutritious fruit? (don't say berries, don't say berries)

    Berries are obviously heavily touted in the Paleosphere (and slammed in other places for having unavoidable seeds), but other than those, what are the best fruits to eat?

    I predominantly eat bananas cos they're so cheap and filling, but not sure where they rank on the nutrition scale. Pineapple, mango, oranges are also a regular feature in my life.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      I would say that the fruit that is in season in your area is the best fruit to eat at anytime. In summer, I eat peaches, blueberries, summer apples, melons, etc.

        I think bananas are pretty good actually. Very good for potassium obviously, but I think they also have some good fats in them iirc.

            They're all great! Seriously, unless you're eating 40 pieces a day, eat what you like

                blueberries, strawberries, huckleberries, cranberries, berries, berries, berries! LOL I just had to

                Seriously, I love just about all fruits. I have no idea which are the best, but we eat apricots, bananas, blueberries, cranberries, dates, figs, grapefruit, grapes, mandarins, mango, melons, oranges, papayas, raisins, and strawberries. I've been aiming for small quantities of a large variety of fruits. Some are fresh, others dried or frozen.

                Here's some Nutritional Information about Fruit that you might find helpful if you want to do comparisons.

                    I eat them all too!! I try to eat mostly in season fruits though. I do know that fruits like bananas, pineapple, and oranges will raise your glucose levels higher then some of the other fruits, but I still eat and love them! I just keep in mind that if I have an orange, it would be good to pair it with an omelet of something if I can, and not eat 3 in a sitting. Bananas (although they do raise your blood sugar more than some of the other fruits) have lots of great things in them.

                      Maybe a very ripe banana if I should choose one fruit only...

                        Do you know how many different types of berries there are? The best is the wild brambles (blackberries) that we gather in the hedgerows in the autumn, though the wild raspberries by the roadsides in late summer are pretty good too!

                          and berries
                          pineapple, bananas and oranges all spike my blood sugar too much

                            I'm having a déjà vu moment here. I do pick wild blackberries in summer. If I can find wild black raspberries, they are the best!

                              I think if you just go for variety w.r.t. color you'll get everything you need.

                              Your preferences are heavy on the yellow. Those are my favorites too but maybe switch it up with some kiwi, watermelon, plum, grapes, apples, (berries...), etc. Or not!
