“Eating fruit is a really good idea,” says Dr Mike Israetel, PhD in Sport Physiology and cofounder of Renaissance Periodization.
Surprising Benefits of Eating Fruit

Low calorie density
You can eat fruit on basically any kind of diet and/or training phase.
High satiety level
They provide you with a lot of fullness for the amount of calories they bring in.
Full of micronutrients
Fruits are full of micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and fibre.
Sweet tooth medicine
Especially when you’re on a diet, fruits can appease sweet cravings.
How to add fruit to your diet
Make sure you’re consuming fresh fruit as these benefits apply less and less the more you process the ingredient (for example pre-made orange juice).
