I’ve been trying to reduce my sugar intake which has been extremely hard because I have the biggest sweet tooth..
I’m trying to incorporate more fruits and veggies but I’m worried that I’m eating too much fruit because I’ve noticed I’m a bit bloated?
I feel like I’m doing this wrong?
Does anyone have any idea as to which fruits are the best to help in this weight loss process compared to the ones that may plateau the process?

If you are trying to cut back on sugar, eating fruit isn’t going to help. Fruit turns to sugar in the body once past the lips.
Focus on fat. Fat keeps you satiated and it helps to eliminate cravings.
Focus meals & snacks around fat & protein. I eat high fat/medium protein and low carb. I don’t have constant cravings anymore and just eat when I am hungry.
One more thing, wheat & grains also turn to sugar in the body once past the lips.

Fat is the ADHD brains best friend as our brains are actually 60% fat.

You have to eat a lot of small meals a day, I eat 120 calories of fruit every hour and a half during the day. At night I eat mainly fats like olives, oil, coconut….

I eat 2 servings of fruit a day. I’ve done this while following the Weight Watchers program, and when I don’t follow the program.

I have two thoughts.
First, if you are eating whole, not-dehydrated fruit, this would not be the first place that I stress.
Second, instead of focusing on what to reduce, focus on the other things to increase.
