3. Using too much fruit
The fruit bowl might seem like one of the safest places for clean eating. For years, you’ve heard the saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but does that saying apply to bananas, pears, and strawberries? Unfortunately, fruits are loaded with natural sugar, so you must eat them in moderation. Reach for fruits that are high in fiber and antioxidants, such as berries, kiwi, and grapefruit, and you’ll get more bang for your buck.
