I do indeed.... It's shocking to find out how much is in food I thought was "empty"!!!

I used to eat loads of fruit, but due to the high cals rarely eat more than 1 piece a day now. I have started eating dried fruit, it can be lower in cals and lasts much longer. Also counts towards your 5 a day :)

I find dried fruit much higher in cals. For a small-ish (clearly have portion control problems lol) bag of mango there's 300 cals! That's a meal!

What dried fruit are you eating?

Otherwise I do love fruit and veg, as I'm a vegetarian they at times make up a large portion of my day.

I count fruit and veg because most days those are half of my daily eaten calories:)
Those are great calories but you know, still calories...

Count them. Especially fruit!! :) I don't count salad really tho. It's hardly worth it!! And it's a bother logging it all so I just log it a basic mixed salad for 25 cals ;) it's probably more as I usually have two goid handfuls but hey ho and extra handful of lettuce won't kill me!!
