That was supposed to say "I would rather eat no strawberries than only 2 or 3 strawberries.

The grapes are delicious right now and I've picked off maybe 4 or 5, during two separate weeks. Absolutely divine.

Fruit tastes so much better now that I have it so rarely. So I will stick to not eating it, but allow the occasional taste like I have and then I appreciate it so much more.
I think low sugar fruit would be ok like berries or a green apple. Guess I'll know for sure soon enough!

Do you check your blood sugar after eating fruit to see how you do?

A couple of strawberries or a few raspberries is a nice addition to a salad, and it makes a nice garnish for a LC cheesecake or other dessert. Also, at a wedding reception or something similar, it's fun to take little bites of everything legal,so that's often shrimp, veggie strips, and strawberries.

I enjoy them.
Same way I eat nuts--- I rarely eat a handful of them alone except if I'm travelling, but I often sprinkle a few onto a main dish salad.

I've heard apples called "sugar bombs" and I personally avoid them. I do eat small amounts of berries on occasion. I also had 1/4 of a tree-ripened peach off our own tree last week, and incorporated that into my daily carb count.

I generally avoid fruit, but it's been harder this summer. The blackberries are beautiful this year, and I've been helping my sister pick berries to make jam to sell. Fresh-picked, still warm blackberries are wonderful! But on the good side, once we get them back to the kitchen, and put them in the fridge, I lose any desire to eat them.

I am dabbling a bit in a bit of seasonal fruit this summer. I was given some organic pristine heirloom apples and enjoyed a few of those while traveling. Likewise, some blackberries. Some raspberries and blueberries and peaches added to my small every other day servings of yogurt, and a few vine ripened tomatoes (small one with bacon for breakfast this a.m.) My portions are small and I am not stalled. I'd like to be able to maintain at these levels of fruits, but I will eliminate for a while if my losses plateau.
Nuts no way. If they are in the house I will eat them all. I sometimes eat nuts from a salad bar, though, as that comes with some portion control.

I have just come the the conclusion that I can no longer eat fruit (berries). They cause me to go on a binge leading to yogurt, nuts, chocolate etc. I hope that the commitment to avoid fruit produces a loss as I have been stalled in the 129-127lbs range for months now.

My husband can eat a small amount of berries, but I cannot eat any fruit accept for olives and avocado. It makes me hungry. I don't eat very much of olives or avocados either. They have too many carbs.
