    Curious as to why you snacked on an apple. I can't fit fruit into my daily carb in take. What's your theory on fruit.

    (I hope I don't sound critical, I don't mean to be, just genuinely curious).

    I always have my shake around 8.00am and lunch approx 12.30pm - 1.00pm and some days I just need a bit of a boost, so I'll grab a piece of fruit. I have 2 pieces of fruit a day, some days I don't. I've heard to not have fruit, and others times I've heard fruit won't hurt. I'll stick with either apple, mandarin or a banana. I'm losing weight, so I figured fruit must not be hurting the diet.

    When I first started my diet, I got my shake powder from the chemist and the lady said she lost 11kg having 2 shakes (one morning, one lunch) and a normal healthy meal at night. There is no way my body could handle that, so I adjusted it and it seems to be working. She said she would have half a bar (One of those low carb bars) to get her through till lunchtime.

    Apples are high in fibre so a good choice, and won't ruin a low carb diet - you need some carbs I believe. I have a banana smoothy each day as my fruit of choice.

    That's great that you are losing weight, you are obviously doing a great job.

    I just looked it up and an apple has about 20g carbs and a banana has about 25g carbs.

    You are probably doubling your daily carb intake in just one piece of fruit. Also, there are other fruits like strawberries that are significantly lower in carbs.

    Once again, not having a go, just thought it an interesting point to discuss.

    Are others on the low carb plan eating fruit?

    You can lose weight easily on 50gm per day and for some people even under 100gm per day so if you're eating fruit and still losing weight more power to you I'll often have a banana coconut milk smoothie for tea.

    Im not eating fruit but if i was craving it, id go the low gi berries, strawberries, black berries, blue berries, raspberries.

    In summer i add a handful of those mixed berries to a vanilla protein shake to make a fruit smoothie. But i just don't feel like it really atm.

    I don't think that is the case for me, but everybody is different. I'm only aiming to lose a couple of kilos so if I ate 50g of carbs per day I would not lose weight.

    That banana smoothie sounds yum though.

    I think for people at the very end of their journey with only a few kilos to go they have to be incredibly strict and go to lengths others dont to shift the last bit.

    When i had got to my last 5 it was near impossible to budge. So i understand fruit not being a possibility for TeBe at this stage

    But for people not at that last stage, an apple isnt going to hinder their success
