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.

Fruit has too much sugar so you'll want to keep your fruit consumption down to a minimum: try to limit it to 1-2 servings. If you eat more than that in the beginning of your paleo journey, don't stress. Just try to taper it off and experiment with... (more)

Is there an optimal time of day to consume carbs? Do you run into problems with blood sugar when consuming carbs with meals that are higher in fat than other meals? More carbs from fruit, "safe starches", or a little of both?
