I am very lucky to live in an area where fruits and vegetables are locally grown and available year round. We follow the seasons here; starting with strawberries and greens in the spring, then apricots, cherries, peaches, figs, melons, grapes, apples, persimmons, and citrus. Fresh and ripe vegetables are also available from nearby farms. So we eat a LOT of fruit here because it's both cheap and delicious. I fear however that eating so much fruit is hindering my weight loss. What do you think?
