View Full Version : Servings of fruits per day

I am currently working on maintaining my weight, and possibly doing a slow bulk soon. But I usually get in around 4 servings of fruits per day. Is this too much you think or would that be fine for someone who is maintaining or doing a slow bulk?

Nothing wrong with fruit if it fits your macros. Just remember you're not getting much from it except some vitamins and minerals, it's mostly fructose.

I'm currently shedding some unwanted body fat and my ratio is 4:1 veggies:fruits. That normally means I get one helping of fruit per day and I try to keep it after I work out. It also means I keep to fruit that is giving me more nutrients per serving like berries. Really I would pay attention to your body and if you start to gain weight too quickly put veggies in where your fruits are and see if that makes a difference. Unless you are trying to get really lean or you are eating pounds of them I doubt they are making a huge difference.
