nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.

My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?

Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of? Raisins should be avoided because they have astronomically high sugar levels, and half of that sugar is fructose. Fructose is toxic. The body can dispose of it safely in small amounts but... (more)

Eat fruit seasonally and as appropriate for where you live. For example, if bananas don't grow in the winter where you live, don't eat them.

Everyone is different. In this respect, I recommend trying a couple N=1 experiments where for a couple weeks, you limit fruit and increase your starchy vegetable consumption, and then try the opposite for a couple weeks.

Just eat real food. Strawberries are real, whole food. Just don't add an assload of table sugar to them like most folks do. (Yes, that means I support adding any amount up to an assload of sugar to strawberries.)
