Part of what causes much of the confusion is the misunderstanding of recommendations.

Personally, I have made no recommendations about how much fruit you (or anyone in particular) should eat. You may find some general guidelines in an occasional discussion but those general guidelines are in response only to the issues raised in that particular question/thread and may only apply there.

In regard to the McDougall program, the only limitation on fruit I know about is in regard to the MWL and again, my above comments would apply here also.

A healthy diet should be centered around fruits, vegetables, starchy vegetables, intact whole grains and legumes with a minimal amount of nuts/seeds and avocado's.

And, not every single choice has to be the "healthiest" or most nutrient dense. We dont all drive the fastest cars, of the cheapest cars or the most fuel efficient cars. We chose the best car for our particular situation considering many aspects of the car and many aspects of our situation.

My recommendations remain and that is not to go by comments on various website but to do the research yourself.

Nutrient density is only one aspect of food we need to consider. Calorie density and satiety is another.

Therefore, take the CRON-O-Meter and using the above food groups, enter varying amounts of these foods that would satisfy all your nutrient recommendations. In addition, make sure such a diet also has enough food in eat to keep you full and satisfied without having to go hungry.

Then you will have solved the riddle yourself :)
