Bravo on this reply! Even my doctor says everybody is different. A nurse once told me that if fruit is a real problem for anyone they can get virtually the same nutrients from veggies.

Gill, if someone is gaining weight from eating fruit, they may be well advised to have their blood sugar checked as excess carbs not burned off will be stored as fat. I do have a blood sugar issue but am able to enjoy any kind of melon except watermelon and any kind of berries except grapes. I didn't learn until recently that grapes are berries.
