    I cut out fruit completely as part of cutting out sugar. I might very occasionally have fruit, just as I very occasionally have sugar. Recently I had both with a glorious baked apple at a high-end restaurant. But 95% of the time no sugar and no fruit is the rule for me.

    Interesting. Though with my schedule it is very hard to make it from one meal to the next without some sort of snack. Breakfast is at 6am, lunch is anywhere from 11:30-1:00 and dinner is 6:00pm or later. So that's an average gap of 6 hours, tough when I'm just starting to incorporate the new diet and have no concept of IF yet.

    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.

    Can't do the bacon, rarely ever eat it though I love it, doesn't really seem like a snacky thing for me anyhow. But I'll probably switch over to the nut type of snack. Maybe get some nuts and seeds in bulk and make some trail mix type of thing to take with me.

    It wasn't that long (maybe 6 months ago) that I was eating 2 cantaloupes for breakfast and 6 mangoes for lunch lol. My skin was horrible! Everything was horrible. Once I made the switch to eating fat as fuel instead of fruit, my skin quickly cleared up and the acne I had for the last 15 years disappeared. It didn't take that long to get rid of, maybe a month. 1 month... I wish I knew that sugar was the cause of my acne 15 years ago, I coulda had alot more fun in my youth.

    I do fine with a cup or 2 of berries in a day, and maybe 1 of those mini bananas in a smoothie. I still think the low sugar fruits are great and I will eat as much as I can tolerate.

    On new years, I stayed out late and the buses weren't running and I had a long ass walk ahead of me and had no energy left. I found one of the only convenient stores open and the only edible thing in there were these sun dried figs. They gave me the fuel to get home, but they also made me breakout not long after. Especially when I finished the pack a couple days later lol. So I definitely have a fruit threshold that I must be aware of.

    I would cut fruit out completely for a little while and see if that's the cause of your skin issues. If it is, then you can start adding back fruit and see how much you can tolerate before you break out, and eat less than that.

    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 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.

    About the only fruit I eat on a regular basis is a banana. Some might think its too sweet, but for my carb needs its working and doesn't work against my objectives.
