I don't digest fructose very well, so I don't eat fruit on a regular basis. And knowing what I know about fructose, I see fruit differently than before--and prefer to get my "sugar" treats from chocolate.
I'll give you that. May I suggest fattier snacks that will actually do something to curb hunger then? some bacon, nuts, beef jerky, etc.
I agree, fruit just makes me hungrier if I have some for a snack without a fat present. I love Barbeygirl's suggestion to make hardboiled eggs and make that your only option for a snack. If you are truly hungry, you will want and egg, if you are not, then boiled eggs probably won't sound all that great.
I tell myself I'm not allowed to eat fruit but I end up cheating and eat about 2 servings a week. I usually make a very small smoothie with so delicious coconut milk with a total of 1 cup of blueberries, black berries and mixed fruit (strawberry pineapple &mango) all frozen from costco I usually drink half or so and give the rest to my boyfriend. I consider that my treat when I get a sweet tooth. I did this after lunch yesterday but noticed It triggered more cravings so I ate nuts and a mandarin orange also after. Nuts are also on my no list for now as I eat too many if I allow them. This is what works for me to lose weight.
wow! was there a reason you were eating that much fruit?
I read this book "Self healing colitis and crohns" by a guy who healed his colitis on a fruit based diet. Nothing I had tried up to that point worked so I gave it a shot. I managed to get off all meds and my digestion improved dramatically! I felt like I was on the way to true health but I had so many lingering symptoms like acne, no energy, feeling very jittery, insane itchiness etc. I knew I had to find another way and continued to research health and diet like a madman! So that book was the starting point that gave me the hope that it was possible to cure this illness through diet. Exactly the opposite of what the doctors were telling me.
So as bad as the dietary advice may have been, it got me pointed in the right direction, and after much experimentation with many failures, I've arrived at a safe zone where I'm finally getting the results I had hoped for and it's a huge relief!
More than you wanted to know I'm sure, but that's why I was eating so much fruit ; )
