I’ve heard a lot recently surrounding sugar in fruit. Not only is fruit less condensed with the stuff (who realistically is going to eat 6 oranges on the run??) but while sugar in soft drinks is associated with sugar crashes and even disease, sugar in fruit doesn’t, and the fruit itself has actual health benefits.

Get your sugar from the right place!

I hate when people cut fruit out of there diet! Fruit is good for you! It’s all natural, it will. Not. Make. You. Fat.

Eat fruit!
