Every time I've started a diet, I have always loaded up on fruit. Apparently that was the wrong thing to do from what I've been hearing. My diets have never given me the results I wanted and the owner of my gym recently told me that I'm eating too much fruit. So, how much fruit should I eat, if any? Don't they have essential vitamins?

There are no vitamins in fruit that you can't gather through other sources. Fruits generally have much higher sugar levels than people think.

A friend elsewhere recently complained that her diet wasn't going so well and that she had had a couple of weeks with no losses when she was following the plan to the letter... When she said what she had eaten during the week we quickly realised she was adding 600-1000 calories a day just with bananas (6-8 a day Shock and the leader of her group couldn't see a problem with her food diary Shock Shock).

Which according to her diet was fine "free food". She swapped it for vegetables and less calorie dense fruits (apples/and oranges iirc) and dropped 5.5lb this week.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

I try to take the fiber into consideration with fruit / net carbs. Moderation (echo Spacey)


I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

Anything is healthy in moderation. Anything is unhealthy when you eat too much, or put additional unhealthy things over it. Fruit is GOOD! Eating too much fruit is VERY VERY bad. Fruit has so many wonderful vitamins! But, too many of certain vitamins is bad. Too much iron constipates, too much potassium is fatal. It is all about moderation. Look of some dieting websites about what is a serving of different fruits.

Great! Thanks for your comments. I'm learning through this process that I didn't know as much as I thought I did. Definitely going to cut back on the fruit and eat more vegetables.

Vegetables are really great, too. Especially if you are feeling hungry. They are so low in calories and have great vitamins, too. And, remember: moderation.
