Mono-Fruiting
There are some, who believe that this method of fruiting is not a safe and healthy method. They believe that the body needs added nutrients that cannot be found in fruits alone. We also need vegetables, meats, fish and whole grains to complete a balanced diet

Willie Fulton's curator insight, September 16, 2014 12:11 PM

When it comes to weight loss, diet and fitness expert Dr. Melina Jampolis warns about viewing fruit as a "free food." She says that "fruit has almost three times the calories per serving as nonstarchy vegetables," which can easily pack on the pounds rather than shed them.

Clearly, every person opts to eat for a variety of reasons. In every instance, though, remember that it's best to choose organic.

It seem that adults are more affected by the lack of fruits and vegetables in their diet than children. The eating of more fruits and vegetables had no effect on cancer, but it helps an individual to be healthier and stronger.
