Someone told me that in order to lose weight I need to avoid fruit altogether, and eat strictly protein and vegetables. Is that true?

Of course not. The foods you personally need to “avoid” are those that provide excess calories in your current diet. For some, that means starch or juices, while for others it could mean cheese and ground beef, and yet others need to cut out fried items. I will agree that making drastic changes by omitting whole food groups is likely to result in a drop in your weight, but that is just a form of reducing calories. It is best to replace high fat/sugar processed foods with wholesome and fresh choices such as vegetables, fish, beans, oats, egg whites, cottage cheese and fruit. - Debbie J., MS, RD
