Sugar

Hi Guys,

I'm currently 8 weeks into my diet (Life Change) and to date have lost 12 kg - weight gained after an ACL replacement :-(

Anyway, I am a chocaholic and the only way I manage to not eat chocolate is to eat fruit!  Problem is looking back at my food calendar I am consuming a lot of sugar per day (around 50/60 grams) most of which comes from Apples, Bananas, Cherries etc, etc

Is this OK due to the fact there fruits and natural sugars or should I cut them out too :-( 

I ask because I'm currently stuck at 84 kg and trying to loose this last 4 kg is very very hard.

Thanks in advance...

    The sugar in fruit is fine - I will not discourage you from eating fruit, especially after you've had great results

    yer sugars are fine, they're low GI unlike most simple sugars so there is minimum insulin rush. 

    perhaps post your regime (if you have one) and you diet up and perhaps there might be something else which we could alter which may help with fat loss. May also be able to sneak in some chocolate in your routine ;)

    Sugars in fruit are ok - that's probably the best place to get sugar <G>

    I wouldn't worry about the sugar from fruits,50-60g of sugars from fruit is more than likely around 3-4 portions of fruit depending on the fruit.

    I think you will be better of monitoring your calorie intake rather than worrying about eating fruit which is low in calories.

    If you love something let it go,if it comes back to you it's yours,if it doesn't it never was.
