My 2017 nutrition journey

I am always trying to find the best way to eat for my body and experimenting with new foods and new ways of eating, so my diet is always evolving. This year, my focus was on improving digestion. In 2017, I was finally able to decrease my sugar consumption, I experienced how effective a low FODMAP diet is for bloating and IBS symptoms, I started fasting for at least 12 hours every day and I incorporated more fat into my diet.

Should I eat fruit if I am trying to lose weight and reduce my sugar intake?

I hear "health professionals" everywhere, on TV, in podcasts, or online, say to limit fruit because of its sugar content, and it just isn't true for the everyday person. Fruit has many benefits for the body and the naturally occurring sugar in fruit is quite beneficial for gut health. Find out more about why fruit is part of a healthy diet and how much fruit you should be eating as well as which individuals should limit their intake to 1-2 servings per day.
