The berry season is in full swing, and sometimes we can't resist its variety. But you should understand that eating kilograms of certain berries all the time is not always good for you, and sometimes it can even be harmful.

Nutritionist Viktor Mandzyak explained why we shouldn't get carried away with berry therapy and how to use these products correctly on his Instagram page. According to him, in fact, you just need to follow two rules, but at the same time, adequately assess all the factors under which they are used.

How many cherries can you eat a day.

Rule 1: We should derive about 50% of our energy from carbohydrates. For instance, two kilograms of cherries will provide approximately 50%. "But, believe me, if you end up with 60% instead of 50%, neither your figure nor your health will suffer," the nutritionist assured.

Rule 2: Consume no more than 50 grams of fructose per day. Two kilograms of berries give us about 100 grams of this sugar. However, even this won't pose a threat if you consider all the factors listed below.

Mandziak explains that only systemic overeating of berries will have negative consequences. This doesn't occur for most of us since we consume these products only during the season of their ripening. We're talking about the same cherries, strawberries, etc.

"But still, on the day of berry anarchy, given the liver's assault by fructose, it's better not to consume sugar by tablespoons; let fruit be the only source of 'fruit sugar' on this day," the nutritionist summarized.

Regarding overeating, he says, it's unlikely to happen as berries are quite satiating.
