I'm with many here that say eat it! I lost the most weight when I ate the most fruit. I know not everyone is like this but thats how it worked for me. I lived on cherries in the summer and apples, pears, and clemintine oranges are my choice of fruit now. I have atleast 1 pc of fruit a day, more if I want it. Play around with it and see if you can bring it into your plan without a problem.

Joining the general consensus that it seems safe enough. Personally, when I'm on that rung of OWL I can eat a small apple with no problems. (I go for the kiddy's lunchbox sized tiny ones.) I'd usually combine it with some kind of fat and protein, but even if I don't it doesn't seem to knock my blood sugar for six. Unlike say melon, which even if I eat with fat makes me hungry enough to gnaw my arm off an hour later. I think the fibre makes a difference too.

Junk, I wish I could find "normal" sized fruit around here. The apples around here, thanks to unnatural fooling with mother nature, are the size of grapefruits or soft balls.

WOE: Lotsa veggies and LC
After about 3 months or so of lc I have come to trust my food cravings.
I used to crave hershey bars, now I crave things like organ meat, or a tomato.
I eat what I crave, and notice that after a few servings the craving is satisfied. With the hershey bars, eating one only caused me to crave another one.
So, I say listen to your body, just do so with moderation in mind.
Oh, and the skin of an apple is loaded with nutrients, it's the pulp that is mostly sugar.
why not try peeling the apple into bite size pieces and with a bit of pulp still attached and eating. That way you get all of the nutrition an apple provides while limiting the carby sugar.

i get around that by chopping them up (keep the skin), and roasting them with butter and a little cinnamon and cloves for baked applesauce. then i just take a portion out and eat it with Greek yogurt. i heard someone else mention whipped cream. i'm gonna try that, too. yumm!
