I used to work in an organic garden back before I did this diet. I ate fruit all the time while I was working there. Bananas, figs, oranges mostly. And peaches and grapefruit from the farmer's market. I gained a ton of weight, too. In fact, eating lots of fruit is how I got to the weight in my avatar on the left. Not once, but TWICE! That's right, I went for a long hike, lost weight, worked at the garden, binged on fruit, gained weight, stopped working at the garden and went for another long hike, lost the weight, came back to the garden, gained it all back.
I know some will scoff, but I was insulin resistant and needed an intervention to stop the process. Now I'm so much healthier. Today I could probably get away with a once-in-a-while banana or peach or mango binge, but in all honesty, it isn't all that appealing to me anymore. I'll never go back to eating like that. It was a huge mistake for me.
