If it weren't for fruit, I don't know that I could have achieved this significant weight loss. I can't think of anything else that is so naturally delicious AND good for you, too. It doesn't even need to be prepared!

My favorite fruits are:

pineapple, mango, strawberries, grapes, apples, watermelon, melon, peaches, plums

I also love dried fruit--especially pineapple and apricots. But I have a tendency to binge on them, especially the pineapple. That usually has added sugar.

And nothing beats a banana for breakfast! It's as filling as bread, but without the refined carbs.

What are some of your favorite fruits?

Hello Elissa

I agree, fruit is fabulous.

My faves are:

Wild Blueberries
Charentais melon
French Apricots
Hass Avocado
Fragola Grapes

My sister's in-laws have a farm in the south of Italy, with a large orchard where they grow wonderful fruits. They also have a lot of olive trees.
Around September-time, the fruit is ripe, the harvest is coming in and everyone is a picture of radiant health as they have been gorging themselves on the produce all summer long (& getting plenty of exercise in the fresh air).
Even the dogs eat fruit and, by the end of the summer, the old ones are behving like puppies and looking much better than before.

What perfect food.

And what a great topic, Elissa .

Love and Hugs

You are so right!!!
Fruit is the best dessert and a great snack!!!

I love peaches, apricots, melons, apples, oranges, blueberries, plums, the list goes on and on!

Fruit is a perfect food;- non-fatning, nutricious, satisfies the sweet tooth, good for digestion, etc.

I try to eat mostly lean meats and fish, skim milk and yogurt, nuts, and fruits and vegetables as most of my diet.

Frozen raspberries, tangerines, grapes and plums to the max!
