Fruits are packed with vitamins and minerals, however they also can contain high amounts of fructose (a type of sugar).  You can eat fruits in moderation if you are metabolically fit.  Below is a table listing the  healthiest fruits that will help you attain or maintain your metabolic health. A list fruits you can consume often, the B list fruits eat in moderation (2-3 times per week), and the C list fruits are best avoided or eaten 1-2 a month. Generally, eating fruit as it is in season is not a problem. It is best to avoid all fruit juices and eat the fruit.  Fruit juices contain very little fiber and are concentrated in the fruit sugars.
