    Too much fruit?

    Hi everyone,

    I've switched from VLCD and did first proper Primal day yesterday, I think I overdid the fruit as I feel off today and have a bad tummy.

    I had:

    1 x Small clementine - morning
    Berry smoothy 180g - mid afternoon
    coconut chunks 40g - late afternoon
    berrys 150g / 1 x banana and cream - after dinner

    I think I got a bit carried away!

    I've eaten salad, veg, fish, eggs and a little cheese in the day.

    My aim is to lose weight, so I don't want too much fruit to hinder that.

    I was going to just cut it out, but thought I'd ask for opinions first.

    Thanks in advance.

    Coconut is more a nut than a fruit so don't worry about that one.

    I try to stick to 2-3 portions of fruit per day max but sometimes have 1 or 0, and usually go for low GI choices - berries are great. I only have bananas when I exercise - usually a 1/2 the night before and 1 after my workout.

    That's great thank you

    I just keeping thinking I'll have to adjust things as I go along to be happy with the food choice but still lose weight too.

    I don't think fruit agree's with me, but then I've always thought that. I love it, but it bloats me and seems to cause problems.

    I'll buy some nuts today, they should help instead of fruit.

    Thanks!

    As long as you eat a variety of veg to get nutrients, fruit isn't necessary - so if it doesn't suit you then don't try to force it. you're right, paleo/primal is great as everyone can find a way that suits them.

    I ate so much fruit last week that I'm having a fruitless week this week.

    Been maintaining under 9 stone on a Primal diet since Oct 2012.


    Commitment and hard work gets you there.

    You can 'diet' and still have a life if you really,really want to.



    Maintaining is easier than the losing.

    Your weight is not going up for no reason. It's going up because you consume more than you burn.

    117 days until Xmas.

    I find it hard because fruit seems to be my only treat as its sweet.

    When my weight loss stalls ill probably cut it out. I only have 2 portions a day anyway

    Good luck at cutting it out :-)

    Thanks everyone, I think I'll have a small orange or banana now and then.. they seem ok, berries are giving me acid but i'll try them again in a few weeks.

    Yes, loads of choice & I'm really enjoying my meals so far!!
