The Fruit Index: A Handy Guide to Nature’s Candy

Trying to get in shape? Most fitness gurus agree that unless you change your diet, you're wasting your workouts. But fear not -- we've got your back. In addition to finding you this inspirational video, we've put together a handy index of fruit nutrition, largely based on our experience at the Woodstock Fruit Festival. Why fruit? Unlike most supposedly "healthy" snacks, fresh fruits are digested easily and provide a wide array of vitamins and minerals. Additionally, they deliver their sugars (i.e., energy) with a healthy dose of fiber, allowing you to digest glucose without the usual insulin spike and subsequent crash. Of course, it doesn't hurt that they're delicious.
