    I would choose the ones that I enjoy eating and keep me within my calorie goals.

    I personally enjoy strawberries, grapefruits, blackberries, nectarines, pineapple, and apples.

    But I think they're really just another way to eat sweets (albeit one that often includes fiber and vitamins).

    Pretty much any berry or melon.

    Another vote for any of them. Including bananas.

    Any fruits really! I personally like to have more fruits with a lower Glycemic.

    I love mangoes. I have to control myself when they're perfectly ripe.

    I'm not much of a "sweets" guy save for a few select items and if I'm in the mood for one of those items, I'm going to have one.

    I eat 2-3 servings of fruit daily...I like apples, red grapes, pretty much any kind of melon, most berries, and pineapple.

    None consistently. Besides, there's a good number of my favorite sweets that contain fruit, so I just have both.

    Blueberries blended with protein powder. But if I really wanted some sort of sweet, I'd have the dang sweet.

    I do both.
  • rainbowbowrainbowbow Posts: 7,497Member Member Posts: 7,497Member Member
    Because i'm a demon i say.... WHY NOT BOTH?!?! MUWAHAHAH

    No, but seriously, sometimes i just make a big ol bowl of fruit salad (mandarins, strawberries, blueberries, pomegranate seeds, etc.) and sprinkle them with 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar. i set it in the fridge for 5-10 minutes so that the sugar pulls out the moisture in the fruit, and then i toss it all together and go to town.

    Yes. Ideally I'll just stick to berries though I think any fruit is a better choice than sweets.

    Most, as I love fruit.

    I think it's seriously weird to focus on how much sugar fruit has, however.

    Sugar is sugar, whether it's in candy or fruit. Lucky you, if you don't need to worry about it.
