    Too much fruit??

    Hi

    Im a lil curious as a fellow SW member at work has said that I am eating too much fruit. Can that be right?

    Im eating a medium sized tupperware box of cut up fruit so for example today i had a quarter of a honeydew melon, 6 strawberries, a handful of grapes, 1 clementine and 1 banana.... This is throughout the whole day.

    I dnt think thats too much fruit but he seems to think thats the reason why i gained 2lbs last week.

    It's certainly possible to eat too much of just about anything, but that's definitely NOT too much! Sounds lovely, in fact.

    I agree. I would eat 1/3 fresh pineapple, big handful if grapes and a large banana just for breakfast. That's on top of a large apple with my lunch. Beyond that my superfree tends to be veg but what you describe is NOT too much. If it was you would be on the loo all day!! Although fruit has more natural sugar than veg I can't imagine its physically possible to eat too much, except maybe bananas? Even then that would be so filling you would stop before it became too much of an issue.

    the fruit in the sugar can cause weight gain, it has happened to me when I've eaten A LOT of fruit... But you're not eating a lot off fruit...

    Do you drink enough water? replace some of your teas/coffee with peppermint tea to ensure you're getting rid of any bloating and excess water. And if you're bowel movements aren't regular that could be a cause too.

    Your fruit box DOES sound yummy! And, as other posters have said, it's definitely NOT too much fruit - fill your boots!

    I eat lots of fruit but also eat lots of veggies as snacks too to keep the sugar from fruit levels down :-)

    Good luck in your weigh in x

    No. Most definitely not. Fruit will not be the cause of your gain.
    It says nothing in your books about restricting fruit intake.

    This is something worrying me also, as I am aware fruits can contain a lot of sugar. But while ever I'm still losing I'm still going to eat as much as I fancy, I guess the sugar in fruit would be far less than that in a choc bar or something else naughty I'd say fill your boots
