    It appears if I eat two fruit servings a day I am over my sugar intake for the day. I don't plan on eating a ton of fruit usually my max is 2-3 fruit servings a day, but should I be overly concerned about this? I figure I am not eating candy or sweets so should I cut down to one fruit a day? If so Iam running out of snack ideas!! Any help on this is appreciated!

    Hard pretzels are a great snack food, the nugget ones...one serving is about 120 calories, and they are very dry, so when you drink fluids with them they expand and make you feel super full. A bag of them lasted me about two weeks. Beef jerky is another one, although it'll get you on sodium intake if you're not really careful, but the protien helps you feel full longer after you eat it. Veggies like baby carrots and celery sticks are great snacks too, and you can dip them in fat free ranch for some yum! Best of luck, hope this helps.

    If you have weight issues, you should limit it to 1 fruit a day. and stick with low carb fruits like berries, rather than sweet ones like watermelon or strawberries.

    I just saw a nutritionist and she told me to eat 5 small fruits per day. I had to go into settings and edit all of my numbers to bring them into line of what my nutritionist told me to do.

    I figure that I can just use this website to help enforce what she told me to do.

    Fruits are nothing to worry about. I hate that myth.

    I've been eating more fruits this week than I used to and I lost 2 pounds. I feel better and healthier since i started eating more fruits so I think 2 to 4 fruits a day is perfectly fine :)

    The first few days I was almost 4 times over my sugar, I've whittled it down by changing out two of my fruits a day for veggies. I made a veggie salad that lasts a few days in the fridge and I can take to snack on it at the office. It's shredded carrot, jicama in chunks and cucumber. Then i add the juice of maybe 2 limes and just a touch of olive oil. My husband loves this will habanero as well. It takes the edge off at the office and although it adds some carb it also adds fiber and keeps my sugar down, although I have to admit I'm still over sugar every day, just not 4x over. :)

    Whole fruits are filled with nutrients & fiber, not just sugars. They are good for your body. If you are having trouble losing, look at all of your calories & play with servings of different things until you begin to see a loss again.

    I really hope that I can continue with eating (more than one piece of) fruit, I just can't imagine my life without it.

    Serious fruit lover chiming in. I would live on fruit if I could. I hate to say it, but when I limit it to the almost unbearable SK suggested amounts, I start to see muscle definition that I have been waiting years to uncover. I didn't quite realize just how fast the sugar was adding up with all my "healthy" fruit. Dried fruit is especially dangerous for me -- have to keep it out of my house.

    Really enjoying fresh veggies with my own mayo-based dip as a snack. Also, coffee and tea -- sometimes I am just wanting something in my mouth, not necessarily more calories.

    Nutritious snack

    Eat regularly throughout the day is a good way untu repel lethargy. Snacks keep our metabolism to continue working, which means we will not be hungry when it is time for us to eat our main meal. Hunger is one of the causes of overeating. Also, if we are having a busy day and we can put some snacks in our schedule, lunch time lost will not seem difficult for us. Even so, what we choose to be a snack is essential to our diet. Berkut are some strategies to help you enjoy a snack in between meals without feeling guilty.

    1. Enjoy every bite
    If we eat in a hurry, while we work or even while watching television, food will run out without us knowing. Take the time to sit down, turn off the computer when possible, and concentrate on enjoying our snack. We'll eat more slowly and feel more satisfied.

    3. Choose protein
    For lasting energy, eat protein-rich snacks such as small pieces of chicken or a handful of nuts. This will make us feel full longer than eating starchy carbohydrates, such as bread, potatoes, pasta.

    4. Pick the right time
    Do not eat a snack just before eating. In 2002, researchers at the University of Minnesota found that mengosumsi snack half an hour before meals means we will be eating more food than if you eat a snack lebiih early. The reason new body sends satiety signals to the brain after having enough time to absorb food.

    5. Do not make yourself hungry
    We had to eat when feeling lapr. Hunger is the body's way of saying that it requires fuel. Always better to eat so feel hungry, rather than overeating later from starvation. Also, when we feel excessively hungry, we tend to lose control and take over unhealthy choices. Eating little and often will help us avoid this situation.

    6. Choose healthy
    It is important to choose the right foods, because foods high in fat or sugar, such as chocolate or potato chips in between meals to increase calorie intake very quickly.
