    Definitely no juice, not store-bought, just the juice from the real fruit I have, gripped in my hand.

    Mostly salads. HUGE salads. Lots of greens. Micro greens. Experimenting with no oil dressings. Save my carbs for my evening meal: POTATOES!!!
    Carbs! I tried a no carb diet back in the '90s, I don't think that lasted a whole 24 hours....

    I'm eating green salads in the evenings, use a light oil based dressing, which is all that's really necessary. Every-so-often, I just eat a no-dressing salad, and enjoy it as much.

    I'm convinced that it is sugar rather than fat that is the main cause of the current Obesity/Diabetes epidemic.

    I tend to think so too. A lot of sugar can do a number on your blood sugar levels, up and down, can make you feel like you're hungry when you're not. The same amount of calories of fat makes you feel stuffed. I think it's truly only calories that count in the long run, but most people won't bother with that. Just eat whenever they feel hungry, so they gain weight.

    Overeating i've read can cause pancreatic distress but I imagine it would take quite a bit of fruit to cause that type of reaction.

    That's the way it works for me. If I eat a bowl of oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins for breakfast (I can't hack oatmeal by itself) I will be hungry in an hour or two. If I eat the same number of calories in sausage and eggs I can go five hours easily.

    Just last night, the show "Autopsy: The Last Hours Of (2014– ). Steve Jobs" mentioned that Steve Jobs' determination to cure his pancreatic cancer via holistic means actually exacerbated the situation.
