So I've been reading on here about the dangers of fructose, and fruit takes up probably 1/3rd of my diet. I don't really like vegetables, I try to eat them occasionally and I'm working up to them more often...but I just HATE them, I really do.
So, I started using fruits as my snacks. I've already lost over 20 lbs since Thanksgiving going Paleo, and I'm very proud of my progress, but if fructose is keeping me back from more, I'd like to figure out a way to wean myself off of fruit, or at least choose less fructose heavy sources.
I usually eat 1-3 pieces a day, along with a glass of fruit juice. After reading today about the dangers of fruit juice, I'll probably be changing that to tea or something. I normally eat grapefruit, maybe a few dried apricots or dates, mangoes and apples.
Is there a list anywhere of fructose content in fruit?
p.s. Any recipies that have veggies in them that don't TASTE like veggies would be awesome. I specifically don't like wet and crunchy (celery, carrots) or the sweet and earthy taste of squashes. My favorite veggies pre-paleo were corn and potatoes. Ha-ha. I can stand asparagus and zucchini sometimes, but they're the only ones I can think of.
EDIT: I don't know if it's important, but I'm 6 feet tall, I started at 312lbs, and am now at 291. I have another 90 or so lbs to lose, and I'm trying to do that in a healthful way! But yes, I am obese currently, so I know as long as I keep to what I've been doing I'll continue to lose weight, I just want to make sure I'm doing it "right"...as silly as that sounds now that I'm typing it.
