Too much fruit??
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.
In fact, eat much more fruit than that!
I eat more fruit than that every day and it has never stopped me losing, carry on eating it x
It's certainly possible to eat too much of just about anything, but that's definitely NOT too much! Sounds lovely, in fact.

That would be my breakfast!! I eat way more than that!! X it is def not too much x
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.

I have a whole melon every morning, and I've lost 3 stone in as many months
Your fruit box DOES sound yummy! And, as other posters have said, it's definitely NOT too much fruit - fill your boots!
Thank you for clarifying that people. I felt a bit stupid asking but thought id better double check. I dnt drink tea or coffee just water really so i know thats not an issue. Ive got my weigh in tomorrow n i will be telling the lady what he said coz he goes to see her but on a different day.
Good luck for your WI tomorrow x
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
