Green and yellow vegetables are too low in calories to serve as the centerpiece of your meals, but can be added without restriction. Fruits – because they are high in simple sugars – should generally be limited to 3 servings a day as they’re tasty and easy to over-consume. The sugar in fruit is fructose which, for some, causes triglycerides and cholesterol to rise. People with these concerns should limit fruits even more.
