I have noticed that i eat a lot more fruit now (2 pieces normally but if i have a lot of cravings up to 5 pieces) and wanted to know if this could be bad?

For me if I eat 2 or 3 pieces of fruit I'm okay but if I eat more than that the fruit sugars (fructose) make me gain weight.
Each person metabolizes differently so if it works for you then that's great. :D

A healthy diet is about balance. Perhaps keep a food diary for a week or so and make sure that you are getting a good balance of everything.

A while ago I did this and found that when I snacked I ate fruit (probably because its sweet and easy to grab) but for a balanced diet I should have had a diet yoghurt, or some vegies or some protein.

Snow peas are now one of my favorite healthy snacks and just as easy as grabbing fruit.

Hope this helps,

I generally have some strawberries and banana on my breakky, then some fruit for lunch (at the moment grapes and nectarine).

I'm working on the principle that i try to make most of my food something that grew. So most of my foods are vegies and fruits and simple, unprocessed grains etc. Not a big meat eater.
