Paleo Diet Allowable Fruits

Paleo Diet Fruits
Fruits are not only delicious, but they’re also great for you. That said, fruits (even paleo-approved ones) contain large amounts of fructose which, while much better than HFCS (high-fructose corn syrup), is still sugar. If you’re looking to lose weight on the paleo diet, you’ll want to cut back on your fruit intake and focus more on the vegetables allowed on the paleo diet. However, feel free to have one or two servings of fruit a day. (We’ll admit, we’re partial to blackberries!)

Apple Avocado Blackberries Papaya
Peaches Plums Mango Lychee
Blueberries Grapes Lemon Strawberries
Watermelon Pineapple guava Lime Raspberries
Cantaloupe Tangerine Figs Oranges
Bananas*      

*While these starchy foods are great for energy replacement for paleo diet athletes who are spending long periods of time exercising and who need some of the starchier foods to sustain their energy levels, if you’re trying to lose weight on the paleo diet, you’ll want to limit the quantities of these that you’re eating.

Eat high-sugar fruits in moderation. They’re great for you, but it’s easy to overdo it. Remember, your caveman ancestors didn’t have access to Florida’s orange groves 24/7, so you probably shouldn’t try to eat a bushel of oranges in your next paleo diet meal.
