Delicious
(NaturalNews) It is commonly known that fresh organic fruits are healthy and delicious, but most people are not even eating 3 servings a day. People know that they are good for them, but how much should they really eat? Many experts in health and nutrition are giving far different advice than the food pyramid. Doctors like Doug Graham and Timothy Trader - as well as athletes like Harley Johnstone and Michael Arnstein and as well as personal trainers such as Kevin Park - are all saying don't just eat 3 or 9 servings a day. They are saying eat upwards of 30 servings per day! It may sound extreme, but when you consider our primate physiology and check out the fitness results these people are getting, it makes sense. This article will give you the clear lowdown on how to get more fruit in (without having to spend much more money) and on how to transition easily to a healthier diet.

What not everyone knows is that every serving of fruit contains protein, carbohydrates, and fat. In fact, many fruit have more protein by percentage of calories than mother's milk!

Some fruit are so nutritious that simply by eating enough calories, one can meet nearly all the Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs)!

For example: 2000 calories of cantaloupe provides 49 grams of protein, 480 grams of carbs, 11 grams of fat (including a whopping 2.7 grams of Omega-3), 100% of minerals and 92% of vitamins - falling short only on Vitamin B2 (providing 86% of the RDA) and Vitamin E (providing 29%). Simply adding a great source of B2 and Vitamin E like a handful of almonds provides the full range of nutrients.

So how can you do this and save time and money?

Step 1: Sample seasonal organic produce at your local farmer's market to find out what you like best.

Step 2: Buy a case worth of that produce - and make sure you get a solid discount. 25-50% off should be expected - if it is a large scale grower.

Step 3: Eat up meal sized portions of that produce for breakfast.

Breakfast is the best time to make dietary improvements - especially if breakfast comes after a bit of morning exercise. What better way than to start the day by making choices that you KNOW are good for you.

Make sure to get enough calories to sustain you. Many people don't realize that just because an orange and a candy bar might be around the same size, they are not equal in calories. One orange might contain 60 calories, while a candy bar contains 280.

If you need 800 calories to start your day, you can get that many calories from the ripe organic seasonal fruit you buy.

Here's a brief guide to getting 800 calories from various fruits: 8 apples, 12 oranges, 5 big mangoes, 7 bananas, 8 pears, 3 cantaloupes (yes, 3), or 5.5 pounds of edible watermelon.

It may sound like a lot of fruit, but consider that you are a primate and are physiologically designed for fruit before anything else. To make it easier, feel free to make smoothies or to simply lay out the amount of fruit necessary for a meal and continue eating as hungry.

Well, that's all you need to do!
