THE CALORIE COUNTER CHART
If you are able to afford it, organic fruit is the better choice.
The above chart gives you both the calories and carbohydrates in fruit. Please remember that what is critical is carbohydrates -- rather than calories. If you really restrict carbs and eat plenty of protein and fat from natural sources, it's unlikely that you will need to worry about calories at all.
Because Mother Nature designed our bodies to flourish on clean water and natural sources of proteins and fats, they often don't handle carbohydrates well. Therefore, it's generally best to limit consumption of all fruit, even including fruits such as berries that are often highly nutritious.
For this reason, since fruits are often very high in carbohydrates, it's usually better to focus more on leafy green "vegetables" rather than "fruits and vegetables." In many ways, although sometimes prompted with the best of intentions, government programs that have pushed the "fruits and vegetables" dogma have been counter-productive.
In other words, what really matter are not the calories in fruit but the carbohydrates in fruit.
