1/2 a mango equals one fruit serving.

You are only meant to have 2 fruit serves per day...

Hope that helps!

I am pretty sure its at least 2 serves per day. Not a maximum of 2 serves.

Mangos have no fat in them.

Unless you have it with ice-cream :P

Four doesn't sound bad at all, its healthy, just take into account the energy value.

Remember losing weight is all about energy in/energy out.

I think it's around 135cal per mango, although it depends on the size obviously...

So maybe 4 is excessive?

I hate mangoes, they are gross hehe

Man, I lived in Qld most of my life and I remember every summber I used to eat like 10mangos a day and that was it!!! Lol, mangos are the best!

I don't think there's anything wrong with eating so many mangos, but (for women) just be careful of thrush!
