In this episode, we are going to be covering a topic that I never expected to be a topic of controversy in nutrition: Fruit.

As a result, I have seen more and more people in my practice avoiding fruit. 

To help you better understand the benefits of fruit consumption and debunk those myths and misinformation around fruit.

In this episode we cover these dive deep into these three points:

  • Why fruit is beneficial to our health and some specific examples of fruit compounds that have health benefits
  • Who the small groups of people are who may really benefit from limiting fruit consumption

Make sure you tune in to learn more.
