How much fruit can I consume per day?

I like the trick questions. You can consume as much fruit as you want, it's a free world. However if you have tooth decay you will want to greatly limit how much fruit you eat. If you do not have tooth decay, then I would recommend one serving of fruit per day, preferably at lunch or after lunch.

Many people have the habit of filling themselves up with sweet foods. Sweet foods mask our hunger for proteins and fats. Many of the fruits we have today, like bananas, peaches, pineapple and blueberries are very sweet. In moderation they are okay. What moderation means depends on your specific case. If you have active cavities, then no more than one fruit per day, and it should be eaten with a fat like cream. If you do not have tooth cavity problems, you can have more fruit. If the cavities are very severe, then no fruit at all is ideal.

What kinds of foods to eat, and how fruit is connected with tooth cavities is explained in greater detail in the book, Cure Tooth Decay.
