The good news is, yes! Of course you can!
We know, fruit has sugar in it, but whole fresh fruit also has plenty of fibre and nutrients to help slow down the sugar dump on your liver. Our bodies are designed to metabolise the amount of sugar contained in 1-2 small pieces of fruit a day (ie around the recommended amount of sugar we should be eating per day). However, if you’re also having other sources of added sugar, that’s when you might want to reconsider your fruit intake and up your veggies instead.
We always eat fruit in its whole form and we have it as part of meal, with protein-rich cheese and nuts, or blended up with a tonne of vegetables in a green smoothie. We also try to eat fruit that’s local and in-season.
Is fruit included on the 8-Week Program?
On the 8-Week Program, we remove sugar between weeks two to five. It's just for a short time to help us get on top of the sugar cravings and recalibrate our palate. In week six of the 8-Week Program, we encourage everyone to reintroduce fruit and observe how their bodies take to it. It's intended to be a gentle experiment to work out what's best for you.
Is fruit included on the 7-Day Reboot?
Yep! We include fruit in our 7-Day Reboot meal plans and you'll notice we often use it as a sweetener. We've done this to show you that you don't need all that much to get a burst of sweetness and to encourage you to use fruit as a natural sweetener once the Reboot finishes up.
