    I am learning that many of you are following Atkins with success. What about the lack of fruit? Is it OK for us to eat fruit?

    Get his book. In the beginning, he does not allow fruit, but it is added in later on.

    The Suzanne Somers diet allows fruit from the beginning, but it must be eatin by itself.

    Also, you need to get a glycemic index, which tells you which fruits cause an insulin upsurge, causing problems, and which do not..like berries (of all kinds) do not produce too much insulin, whereas, ripe bananas are a "no-no"...eventually, on any of the diets you will be able to eat some fruits, so you need to know the distinction between the fruits...

    I haven't had a banana for sooooooo long and they have always been one of my favorite fruits.
