Hi Leila,
Yes, I'm trying to watch my carbs more. What do you think about this week's WW tip to eat more fruits? I'm trying to watch the sugars.

Hi Donna!
I can definitely understand your concern. Some fruits are higher in sugar content than others (there's a link below with more info). Fruit sugars would also be of great concern if you're diabetic. That's something to definitely be careful with. Otherwise, I think that daily intake of fruits would be beneficial as they provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, AND they fill you up. I have at least one banana, one orange and one apple per day, especially since being in the medical profession, it's easy to carry and I can eat on the go. Hope this helps!

Great information Leila, thank you for sharing. I've just glanced at the articles tonight but will read more thoroughly tomorrow. What do you do in the medical profession? My field of work is in biomedical research compliance.
