Alan, Drew, Glib,
I have a feeling my original post is misleading. My apologies if I have confused many folks…
ANDI scores were first published by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. I have read a couple of his books and in all his books he emphasizes - Eat more fruits and veggies. He recommends at least 4 fruits & 2 pounds of veggies minimum - no upper limit. The more the better. My breakfast most days is a big bowl of fruits always with berries on top with a drink of matcha.
The guidance is to add a variety of fruits to your diet and try to include ones with higher ANDI score. One should not avoid a fruit because its low in ANDI score. Just add high ANDI fruits to it. All fruits and vegetables are naturally very low in calories.
His books show so may folks who reduced cholesterol, weight, blood pressure, diabetes, etc by eating a lot of fruits and veggies. He says - the more you eat the better it is for you! Like Alan says above raw is specially effective!
I sincerely hope the original post does not misguide anyone to eat less of any fruit. I personally eat a ton of fruit (at least 2 pounds a day). That’s what got me so interested in growing fruit.
