Weight problems? Avoid too much fruit!

by Hon Lee on May 21, 2014

Everyone knows that you should avoid eating too many sweets when you're trying to loose weight. So dieters try to cut out candies and cookies. But what many don't know is that eating too much fruit can also lead to weight gain because your body easily and quickly converts fruits to sugars.  And consuming excess sweets not only contributes to obesity, but also aggravates diseases marked by infection, e.g., arthritis, cancer, and chronic fatigue.  According to Chinese medicine, excess sweets weaken the spleen, pancreas, kidneys and adrenals.
