Is fruit healthy?
Weight loss hypnosis clients frequently ask me, “Is fruit healthy?” Fruit is an important part of a healthy diet as it contains many essential nutrients that are strongly linked to good health. In particular, the health of the heart and blood vessels: potassium, magnesium, fiber, and polyphenols.
WebMD tells us that, “You can eat too much of anything. But the truth is that it’s hard to get too much fruit. In fact, most Americans don’t eat enough of it. Adults should eat at least 1 ½ cups of fruit every day.
However, a “fruitarian” diet, in which you eat almost nothing but fruit, can keep you from getting enough nutrients from other foods. Experts recommend that 25%-30% of your diet be made up of fruit.”

Fruit is healthy
Most sources recommend five servings of fruit per day and a serving size of fruit is is 1/2 – 1 cup of fruit. For weight loss, three one-half cup servings per day works well for most people.
But, you can definitely drink too much fruit juice. You may be surprised to learn that fruit juice – even 100% fruit juice – can contain as much sugar as soda. In addition, many juices have added sugar and other additives.

Does eating fruit cause an insulin spike, and should it therefore be avoided by diagnosed diabetics or those at risk?
By Nelson Huber-Disla December 5, 2022: Research published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) used data from the Nurses’ Health Study, “to determine whether individual fruits are differentially associated with the risk of type 2 diabetes.” The hazard ratio (a measure of risk association) of type 2 diabetes for total whole fruit consumption was 0.98, suggesting not a risk but a slightly protective association between whole fruit and diabetes. When it came to individual fruits, greater consumption was associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes almost across the board. (However, greater consumption of fruit juice was associated with a higher risk.)
In another large study, involving 0.5 million Chinese adults, researchers investigated fresh fruit consumption’s effects on the risk of diabetes, plus the risk of death or vascular complications among already diabetic individuals. Their conclusions supported the healthfulness of fruit: “higher intake of fresh fruit is potentially beneficial for primary and secondary prevention of diabetes… [And] for individuals who have already developed diabetes, restricted consumption… should not be encouraged.”
There is even evidence that consuming fruit in combination with sucrose (table sugar) results in a less severe insulin spike, in effect delaying the digestion of sucrose and slowing the absorption of glucose.
