I found FS by accident and I am so glad I stumbled on it. I am waiting for a new WW session to start at work to start my diet but now I don't have to wait. I have been following the Points plus values WW plan and through this website I realized that a lot of my food intake is carbs even though most if the carbs come from 3 pieces of fruit. Need to re-evaluate the zero points plus value in fruit.

Oddly enough, the main reason I joined WW yesterday online is because of the zero points system on the fruits. I love fruits and was curious how you can eat as many fruits as you want and still lose weight! It sounds like a dream come through! I realized that their site is almost and exact replica of this one - the only difference is that here you cannot tabulate points. But, I'm sure that I've seen a point system, or at least someone mentioning on the message board that there is a way to calculate the points on FS. does anyone know? Good luck on your weight management.

If you're on WW, I believe the points system is harshest on things that are high in fat. Because there are only 3 macronutrients- fat, protein and carbs - it goes without saying that if you move away from one, you're going to consume more cals of the other. WW is not a low carb plan and if most of your carbs are coming from fruit, I wouldn't stress it unless something's not working. We've all being brainwashed into thinking carbs are universally bad, much like we were brainwashed into thinking fats were universally bad. Both statements are false and the more important thing to focus on is the quality of ALL the food you're taking in- we all agree that staying away from refined sugars and carbs (ie, white flour) is key.

Adding foods
I find sometimes that if I can't find a food in the FatSecret database, I do an internet search and it comes up there under FatSecret. I don't understand why that happens but it works.

I've been getting raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries which are all lower carb fruits. I just stick to a handful of any of them and it been keeping my fruit wants in control. Good luck!
