How much fruit do you have to eat to see healthy results?

I know fruits have lots of vitamins and such in them. Would you have to eat tons and tons of fruit every day to see any kind of health difference? If you eat one fruit a day, will anything change? What kind of changes can you expect if you eat some fruit every day?

  • You should be eating 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables, in at least 3 different colors, every day. This is not enough nutrition, though. You should also eat 6 servings of whole grains every day, eat at least 2 servings of legumes (beans, tofu, nuts, nut butter, lentils, etc.) every day, and drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day.
    You also need to exercise: at least 20 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week.
