Daily bathroom habits with less fruit

Recommended Posts

Ok, I know... what a topic! But kind of struggling here, no pun intended. Im wondering about fruit, which in the past has seemed to keep me "regular".  Is one piece of fruit a day too much? A  little fruit with each meal? Ok? On the whole 30 I am questioning what is considered too much versus risking not enough. The book suggests occasionally adding a "serving of Fruit". Does this mean to each meal or each day.. or not every day?  I feel like I need more to keep things moving...  Has anyone else experienced this problem with so many vegetables and less fruit?

Hi @1of3isme, fruit is wonderful, and you should keep eating it! The one point that W30 makes is that eating fruit on its own can lead to a spike in blood sugar, or even sugar cravings in many people. With that in mind, eating fruit as a part of a meal is great, and can add flavor and/or texture to your dish. For example, I love adding fruit to salads, and there are some delicious recipes out their that incorporate things like apples and pears to hashes. Only you will know for yourself how much of any kind of food is too much. I don't get sugar cravings from eating fruit on it's own, however, it's never a good snack idea for me because it doesn't solve my hunger the way protein and fat does. Good luck!

Seconding @ElizabethG - I don't get sugar cravings from fruit, especially not when I eat it the Whole30 recommended way (with a protein and/or as part of a larger meal) but if I have it on it's own, it tends to just make me hungrier after. Apple alone is good, but I'll be hungry again in 30 minutes to an hour. Apple + prosciutto or banana + nut butter, etc is a really satisfying snack to tide me over between meals if I need it.

I eat about 1 or 2 fruits per day, and again, just never a piece of fruit on it's own. Fruit helps keep me regular too, particularly apples it seems, so I get where you're coming from!
