    When u say 75% fruits and veggies, people tend to lean on the fructose and starch (fruit and potato/corn)
    …if sugar is discouraged, maybe not a generalization about 'fruits and veggies'…gotta get REAL specific about the ratio between both.
    Plus, if were looking at sugars, including fats such as dairy is still going to have less sugars than dairy free wi 50% fruits/juices/etc…
    Variety always seems to be key to most 'diets'..because humans are creative by design..desire for variation reflects the ever changing needs of the body..which is a creative expression in and of itself.
