Berries are a great fruit. I try to eat an apple a day too.

Double check the serving size. When I first entered a banana, it said something like 150 calories. Then I saw that I had entered "one cup, mashed," once I changed it to "one, small, 6 inches or less," it was less calories. Regardless, I try to eat raw veggies more than fruit. Good luck tracking!

WHOLE fruit. I don't drink fruit juice often. Only a sip here or there. (Also I only buy 100% juice), I eat one banana in the morning, one or two pieces of fruit (like pears or apple) in the afternoon. That only is like 300 something calories.

is it whole fruit or juice? it is often recommended that whenever possible you have the whole fruit instead of juice, since the juice is so concentrated and full of calories. What kind of fruit are you eating?

I restarted my Spark Trackings today. (Because of intermentant tracking in the past) With a renewed commitment I started tracking today. I noticed most of my high calories (not fats) are coming from FRUIT! Not sure how much this matters, except that it eats away at my daily calorie allowance. Not sure what to think...I don't want to be discouraged from eating fruit.
