    Thats what I mean; it's all good in moderation, but people seem to think 'oh, fruit and veges are good, eat as much as you want' when eating healthily is eating in moderation, not going overboard with the one food because it's 'healthy'.

    Fruit is full of sugar, so are carrots and iceburg lettuce. You NEED protein daily to be healthy, add some beans to your diet, technically they're legumes (aren't they?).

    I have friends who are 'fruitarians' fatter than fat, the two of them.

    I agree about the protein from beans (lentils are a great source per oz).
    I wouldn't worry too much about the iceberg lettuce - you're talking about 1gram of sugar per cup (2g carbs) - but that said darker green lettuce is perferable to iceberg.

    It went fine for a week and then I broke and cheated for couple of days but now I'm all fruity again I have lost a 2 pounds. I eat lots of apples, tomatos, organic soye milk and yogurt.

    Erm, sorry to say it but tomatoes aren't great for sugar either. By all means have them but not too many. Things like cucumber and celery are better, also dark green veggies like broccoli, zuchini, spinach, cabbage, green beans. Avoid pumpkin and potatoes and peas.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
