Do You Eat a Piece of Fruit Every Day?
You’ve been hearing it for forever: Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can protect you from heart disease, diabetes, some cancer, and even obesity.
And you don’t even have to eat that much fruit to reap the benefits, at least according to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Uncle Sam recommends just 1 ½ to 2 cups of fruit daily.
Right now—and I’m being completely honest with you here—I just cut up a medium apple and that was about a cup of fruit.
Yet guess how many American adults actually eat 1 ½ to 2 cups of fruit daily? Guess.
