Default I hate fruit!

Does anyone know, if I drink 12 ounces of 100% fruit juice every day (for my 3 servinges of fruit per day - gold plan - 4 oz. = 1 serving, is that bad to do? Same with applesauce? I hate most fruits, and it is getting harder and harder for me to eat them. Any of them.

I had that thought too, when I first started - I tried to drink all my fruits... the COD said that 1 juice a day was fine, but they prefer I didn't do all of them that way. I think all natural applesauce (no sugar added) would be fine - just figure out how much of a serving equals one apple.

I did buy into the LAWL mixed berry smoothie - and now have one almost every night with my kids (they really like it, and have one also)- we usually throw a half cup of mixed berries in and that kills two fruits with one serving. Top w/ FF cool whip, make with milk instead of water and it's pretty darn near feeling like a cheat!

The biscotti counts as a fruit and a starch. You can use that for one fruit a day.

Also, you might try cooking the fruit. I like it better that way. You just slice an apple or pear. Cover the slices with nutrasweet and or cinnamon and broil it for a little while. I have seen other recipes that add more things.

I too have a problem with fruit and veggies even. My center has allowed me to do 100% juice not from concentrate and even 100% fruit leather. They did not tell me I could only do it for one fruit a day. I also do LS V8 juice for my veggies. I figure that its gotta be better than just eating celery every day 4 times a day. My center knows that I do this. JMHO but I would think its better to get them in than to not. My center said the fruits had to be around 60 cals per serving. I found this all natural fruit leather at costco at 45 cals per bar and they said that was great!

remember it is not just 100% juice you can have...it also has to be not from concentrate. for example juicy juice is 100% juice, but many of their juices are from concentrate. Tropicana, and florida natural make not from concentrate OJ and Indian summer make not from concentrate apple juice.

Frankly, you'd be getting all the fruit sugar and none of the fruit fiber. A bad weightloss strategy in my view.
Instead of going this route, why not branch out and try some new fruit?
Seedless mandarins
pear
berries (blue, black, rasp, straw, etc)
apples
star
asian pears
cherries
oranges
mango
papaya
melon
plum
kiwi
By the way, organic produce has MORE flavor (I did my own taste test ). If it's not in season, check out the frozen section.

You may find that your tastes will change with time on your eating plan (mine did! ), so keep checking those "I hates" to see if they hold true.

I'm not crazy about fruit either. They changed my plan to add more veggies and dairy to reduce my fruit.

100% Not from concentrate juice
No sugar added applesauce
Raisins

I still have a hard time with fruit. I don't use any of their products.

They are so close, only one carb different. I think that I am not going to stress out about getting not from concentrate anymore. I wonder if they do stuff like that do keep people who don't get 100% juice part from screwing stuff up. You know, like fruit punch and stuff like that.
