The above chart gives you both the calories and carbohydrates in fruit. Remember that what is crucial is carbohydrates -- rather than calories.

If you restrict carbs and eat plenty of protein and fat from natural sources, it's unlikely that you need to worry about calories.

Mother Nature designed our bodies to flourish with clean water and natural sources of proteins and fats; hence, we often do not handle carbohydrates well.

Therefore, it's generally best to avoid eating high carb (fructose/sugar) fruits.

You may occasionally consume a small portion of low carb berries, which are usually highly nutritious. As you will note, berries are usually lowest in carbs.

Since most fruits are high in carbohydrates, it's usually better to focus more on leafy green "vegetables."
