    Fresh fruit has lots of vitamins and fiber. It's sugars are less
refined and are offset by the rest of what's in the fruit. Also they
aren't just empty calories (like the caramel sauce that comes with
apple slices at McDs).

    The average American eats enough bread in a day that they can
easily exceed the FDA for fiber without even trying so long as they
avoid the white crap with no fiber and all of its vitamins bleached
out of it.
