    There are some fruits that are particularly high in natural sugar and if eaten to excess can negatively affect your losses. So I would recommend having a good variety of different fruits and vegetables. But that said even a banana is only 80 calories and far better than a bar of chocolate!

    What do they say? Each meal should be a rainbow on your plate!

    Try the SS fruits in your Optimise book, they are the lowest density ones, that if any will help speed up your weight loss x

    I eat lots of fruit everyday and according to the plan we should be able to do this and enjoy! I am trying to make sure I eat the superspeed varieties this week especially though and am cutting down on grapes as was going a bit mad with them! But it was better that I ate grapes than a lot of other things that were around over xmas etc!

    now I am going to go against the grain here, but I am a grazer, in fact I think I could eat 12 hours a day, and since being on SW I thought I was choosing wisely by eat fruit, I am talking alot of fruit, more out of habit than actually needing it. I found my weight loss stopped, I didn't actually gain, but wasn't loosing either, the only thing I could pinpoint it to was the fruit grazing and in fact when I made a point of trying not to graze I started loosing again. I am in the process of reining the fruit hoovering back in again, I really don't need to eat 12 hours a day!

    Just thought I would add that to this thread, that even though fruit is good for you, and a darned sight better than a bar of choc, remember to only eat it if you a genuinly hungry. NOTE TO SELF:- Am I really hungry do I need to eat it?

    I think this could be partly why since xmas I haven't lost as much as would like/have in the past because I was eating constantly all be it the right things and out of habit like you say and maybe now I have got to this point I can't eat as much as I could before and lose. Good luck with reining it back in :)
