It’s important to eat all your fruit at one meal, because you are less likely to spiral out of control into a binge, if your fruit intake is just once a day. Fruit can spike your insulin level and make you hungrier, and trigger sweet and starch cravings -so the less often you eat fruit, the less likely you are going to get in trouble. Because you can have up to 2 pounds of fruit (about 4 pieces) once a day on Meat, Fruit & Veg – this big serving can satisfy you for the day. But just once a day. Don’t tempt fate.
