Yep, it does! I limit my fruit servings to two a day (I consider a while banana two fruits), and try to eat them earlier in the day. But you are right- too much fruit can derail an otherwise very good eating plan.

Hey Nancy :) No offense at all (if this was even in response to my response). I actually should clarify and say I didn't mean to imply cutting out ALL fruit. I just know some people who tons because it's healthy. And it is... but the high glycemic fruits (which are the ones I love most) always end up in me reaching for more food, so it was more along the lines of things that help me control my appetite. Hope that makes more sense. :)

Er........ I do not mean to offend or belittle, but I'd just like to share that I eat fruit. It really is Okay. If you are in building stage, you might want to watch it in the evenings, but fruit is a healthy and clean food full of all sorts of things your body needs. And the fiber in it helps to negate a lot of the effects of the sugars and assumed insulin spike. I usually try to get my fruit in earlier in the day, just in case a little spike occurs while I sleep. :-)

Hi, I'm new to this team, but thought I'd share. :) I recently started working with a nutritionist/personal trainer and basically get 3 main meals a day and 3 "snack" type meals. The snacks aren't real "meals," but like 12 almonds or 1/4 avocado with a cup of Greek yogurt and meals are usually a protein, veggie and starch. My portions are pretty much defined for me right now, but I honestly feel like I've never eaten so much in my life while trying to get in shape and lose weight. ;)

Be sure you're getting enough protein each meal and cut the sugars back (including fruit). Sugar triggers insulin response, which send signals to your brain to eat more.

Oh, and I'm also drinking 100+ ounces of water a day - that definitely keeps me busy and full too!

I keep healthy snacks (natural trail mix, banana chips, dried cranberries, etc.) at home and use a measuring cup per serving. I have good discipline and admit to slipping and eating a bowl of pecan ice cream instead or a few oreo cooks.

It's okay because I no longer beat myself up, instead push back on sweet snacks.

What do you do to manage your appetite throughout the day? What do you do to control portion sizes so you don't overeat?
