100 Calories of Fruit

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love fruit. And it makes me sad that we’ve gotten to the point where people are afraid to eat fruit because of the sugar content.

I purposely did not include macros in this guide. Why? Because people immediately become terrified when they see the sugar content.

100 Calories of fruit

Meanwhile, fruit is SO much more than sugar. Including them in your diet will provide you with so many important micronutrients and health benefits. “Sugar” has become a curse word, but it should never deter you from eating produce. I mean, how silly does that sound?

That being said, it’s always helpful to have an understanding of portion sizes, so use this guide to help you visualize what 100 calories of fruit looks like! Besides being delicious, I love how filling fruit is for such low calories. Sure, maybe one apple isn’t super filling, but you can enjoy a ton of different berries for the same amount of calories. Avoiding fruit while dieting because of the sugar content is just silly considering what you are missing out on!

Serving sizes vary, so these are ESTIMATES. Different types of apples may have different caloric values, and the oranges you’re eating one day may be larger than on another day. But generally speaking, these are the amounts you get for 100 calories.

Apples are one of my favorite foods of all time, and have been for most of my life. I can’t imagine not incorporating fruit into my diet! Clementines have recently crept up as a close second, though.
