Hi all. I have a quick questions. Do you all limit the fruit you eat? It seems many people who are eating Paleo limit how much fruit they eat. I eat as much fruit as I want. I would love your feedback on this. Thanks all.

Relying on too much of anything isn't good; a varied diet is best as above posts have said.Try and eat seasonally, too.
