I do! But not a lot. Maybe 1-2 times a week. I had a small banana the other day for the first time in 6 months or so. I’m 1 year out. It made me soo full. I try to stick to the berries since they are lower in sugar. But I find I get full quick when eating fruit.

I’m almost 5 months out and occasionally will have a few grapes or a couple pieces of diced apple. No issues at all

I eat bananas and apples daily. Grapes less frequently. I keep portions small and found fruit to be an essential part of my diet. It makes for a great snack.

Pretty much every day. Raspberries and blueberries with yogurt as part of Breakfast or afternoon snack. Tomatoes (depending upon whether one classifies them as a fruit or a veg...) and avocado most every day in a lunch salad. Occasionally tangerines and grapefruit in the salad instead. My overall goal is for ten servings of fruit and veg per day - which I rarely hit but do consistently get 7-8, and 5 as a bare minimum.

I'm ten years out, but it's been that way for at least the past 7-8 years, and lesser amounts but a similar ratio to other foods before that.

I eat fruit a lot. Usually twice a day in maintenance. Blueberries every morning with my rolled oats & then grapes, melons, lychees, cherries, mandarin, apple, etc. after dinner. When losing I ate fruit once a day as a snack but that was after about 3 months. I chose Water rich fruits like berries, melon, etc. to boost my Fluid intake. Only small serves of soft fruit to begin like 2 or 3 mandarin slices, 6 grapes, etc. The little hit of natural sweetness helped with my energy levels too.

Fresh fruit - yes - but to make sure to know how much is 1 serving!

Do any of you sleevers eat fruit?

During weight loss phase, very rarely. If i did, it was like 5-10 berries (raspberries or blueberries) on a salad or with cottage cheese or yogurt.

AFTER weight loss phase I eat more, but probably still not so much compared to others (maybe 0-2 times a week). Also, I expanded beyond berries: apples, grapes. And the very occasional watermelon or mango or papaya or pineapple.

P.S. I'm not counting cucumbers or avocados (which I eat a TON of), nor tomatoes (which I eat sometimes). But these aren't usually considered "fruit" when people ask about "fruit" lol.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
