There is nothing wrong with eating alot of fruit. Its full of good stuff.What kind of bread are you eating? It should be whole grain. The white stuff is just empty calories and will probably add chunk where you dont want it.

Thanks Zevi. Well, I'm eating whole grain bread but I eat like 15, 16, maybe 17 servings a day of grains. Is that going to add unhealthy weight anyway? or "chunk"? I'm confused about "healthy" weight gain. LoL. And im super confused about sugar vs. natural sugar. So do you know what types of foods put on "healthy" weight and which ones just put on chunk?

LoL Fairy...i feel really bad for asking questions on your board! So how much fruit do you eat in a day? how bout grain servings?
[QUOTE=fairycake]Thanks for the replies everyone.

GurlyGurly - feel free to ask as many questions on this thread as you like, the more info the better! :)
I usually eat about 4 portions of fruit a day which isn't that much, I know, but I just got worried when I started adding up the sugar contents. I have a very small appetite so I'd have a hard time maintaining a healthy weight without eating some grains every day. In a typical day I'd say I have about 4 servings, but only 1 being bread (the rest are oats or rice) and I only ever eat wholegrains. Also the bread I eat doesn't have any sugar added to it.[/QUOTE]

Thank you so much fairycake!
It sounds like you have a VERY balanced diet. Good job!

So I just wanted to comment further on my grain intake...lol I wanted to clarify it...I don't eat 17 PIECES of bread a day (lol), my bread tends to be more than 1 ounce a piece so i count it as more than 1 serving. My bread also doesnt have any added sugar. I eat about 6-8 pieces of bread a day, plus a bowl of barley, and two bowls of oatmeal. I'm trying to gain weight, but if all these grains are going to put chunk on just my stomach..how do i stop that and what should I do to put on even, healthy weight?

And I have a question that might help out fairycake as well too (lol), so if I had to choose between a piece of bread and a piece of fruit, which should I choose?
