There are 74 calories in one cup of strawberries.

If you are looking up the calorie count of strawberries, it is likely you are looking at how they fit into your overall diet or nutrition plan.

This can be a confusing process, especially with fruit. Most people agree that one can and should eat an unlimited amount of green vegetables.

With fruit, some say eat all you want, while others point to the high fructose content, and say you should limit your fruit intake.

A very important point, that you likely are not aware of is that some fruits are higher in overall nutrient value than others.

According to a ranking system developed by Dr. Joel Fuhrman Strawberries are the fruit that is highest in overall nutrient density.

For a complete list of rankings of common fruits and vegetables you can read this article.

For those of you following the PEERtrainer Cheat System, organic strawberries are among the foods on the left side of the list.

The high nutrient density of strawberries is the reason that they are on the left.

A Tip On Using Nutrition Guides:

A very quick way assess the nutrient density of any food is to take a quick glance at the vitamins and minerals on the nutrition label, like the one that you see above. If you see a number of entries with measurable percentages, it is likely that the food contains powerful health properties.

Strawberries are particularly high in Vitamin C, Manganese, Iodine and Potassium.

Without getting into too much detail, there are a pile of studies that associate strawberry consumption with lower rates of cancer, heart disease and asthma.

The calorie content of a strawberry is relatively minimal compared to the massive health and weight loss benefits. We have written the following article that describes why Strawberries and other fruits and vegetables help you lose weight and control hunger:

How Strawberries Turn Off Your Hunger

It has also been shown that Strawberries help promote eye health. We usually hear that carrots are great for our eyes, but it turns out that strawberries and other fruits help as well.

Strawberries also contain properties that help fight inflammation. PEERtrainer has published this article that outlines the research that shows how reducing inflammation leads to better health.

In particular they have been shown to greatly help in preventing forms of arthritis because of the strong anti-inflammatory properties.
