    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.

    I bet frutarians would disagree with you. They eat lots of fruit. I love it, too. I don't eat too much of it though because the ole stupid doc says I am pre diabetic. I may start eating more anyway because the doc has proven to be stupid in many instances. I love bananas, strawberries, blueberries, apples, pears, nectarinenes, kiwi fruit, and most fruit!

    Fructose, Lactose, Maltose, Dextrose, Sucrose, they're all good for you and they're all bad for you.

    I don't care what foods contain them...I eat 'em for taste!

    Yes, I love all of those, plus the apricot tree planted several years ago is pumping out fruit. The apple tree will be ready in a couple months.

    And that's one reason why some of don't buy "factory farmed" animal products.
