Fresh fruit is something that should be eating very often. It is recommended at least 5 pieces or serving of fruits every day. Of course you can have dried fruits as well, but you have to consider that the calories per unit of weight are at least 8 o 9 times the ones of the fresh fruits. If you want to reduce weight you should avoid big intakes of avocados, bread fruit and bananas. Mango is an intermediate calories source fruit and should be included moderately in loss weight plans. The rest of the fruits are weight loss excellent aids. One trick is to eat the fruit at the beginning of a main meal, as a starter. This would moderate your appetite and make you eat less.
Anyway, some people do, from time to time a two or three days of detoxification fruit diet. The fact of including high calories fruits depend on the purpose of the diet. If you want just clean your body, it is good to include some bananas or even avocados, and of course, the delicious mangos. If you are overweight, better eat low calories fruits only. This diet is better that the fresh fruit juice diet. With the first one you get a lot of insoluble fiber (and soluble as well if you take high pectin fruit, as apples). The insoluble fiber maintains your intestines working properly, and the soluble drags part of your cholesterol.
Fruits high in pectin are apples, lemons (skin), blackberries, cranberries, kiwis, wild grapes, currants, gooseberries, boysenberries, gooseberries, loganberries, most plums and quinces. Jams of these fruits are also high in pectin.
Modified citrus pectin is a supplement that supposedly fights cancer.
