Default Can fruit really make you fat?

I know on phase 1 its a no-no. But since i started phase 2, i started to add them little by little. and now i have several servings of fruit a day (SBD approved fruit though). Personally I have still been steadily losing but I have started cutting certain things out that i used to eat more of such as nuts and cheese since I never liked them that much to begin with and only ate cause of phase 1. I guess I still find it hard to believe that fruit can make you gain weight, has anyone found this to be true though?

Fruit can't really make you gain weight per se, in my opinion but all that sugar can add up if you eat that in addition to carb loaded meals. The purpose of not having them in phase 1 was to rid you of your cravings, he never really said they would make you fat. We are even allowed to have a medium banana now. I think the whole idea is have it in moderation. I could easily eat three oranges in one sitting but I know I can't do that.

I wish I was steadily losing. I haven't lost for almost 2 weeks. I wish I just knew if it was a normal stall or if I was doing things wrong. All I know is that I cannot add fruit without getting ravenous later, no matter what time I eat it. So maybe that is why, I eat fruit and crave more food in general, thus getting fatter,

hmm fruit doesn't make me have cravings. although one time i had really sweet mango and right after i wanted candy SOOO bad. but after that i was fine.

i had a stall for a couple weeks too. don't sweat it, it happens time to time. but i swear since we got our george foreman grill, the weight has come off easier! its a life saver! plus this week i did the most effective diet of all. the sick diet! i lost 3 pounds! if i can maintain it by tomorrow i'm gonna change my signature soon. yay!

The thing with fruit for me is, I don't crave certain things, or off plan foods, I just get hungrier. Like a snack of fruit will last maybe a half hour and then my stomach feels incredibly empty.

Yeah the sick diet, that usually works! haha
