Now that fruit is free, I don't feel compelled to eat it when before I would have. For example, this morning I had eggs and toast and I grabbed a container of pineapple I cut last night. I always write down and track my food just before I eat it. I had the eggs and toast first, and felt full. I waited a little bit and still felt full, so I decided not to eat the pineapple. It should be a good snack tonight though!
On the old plan, if I had written in a Point for the pineapple I would have eaten it for sure (even though I know I could have added the Point back into my tracker if I chose not to eat it, because that's how my crazy mind works). And I am less protective of my fruit now, I am much more willing to share than if I carefully weighed it all out and so on.
So now that fruit is free, I am much more likely to make good decisions about when to stop eating it than I was before. If I could only learn to apply this to I don't know...chocolate? wine? I would be set for life.
