Jan 25, 2015 Sorry but you can eat fruit and luse weight/body fat. There is no "one thing" that will make or break you when eating to lose weight. Fruit is just that... Fruit. I would and do use fruit and so do Many many fitness, figure bikini and every other type of athlete that is looking to get in or stay in shape. It's not the devil if you understand the body and how it uses food.
