I think that you are on the way to becoming a Fruitarian! Now as you will have noticed from my articles and answers to queries, I am a great proponent of fruit and regard eating 3-4 portions of fruit plus 3 portions of vegetables a day as ideal. However, humans are omnivores and we also need protein, B vitamins, essential fatty acids like omega-3, calcium, iron, - the list goes on and on - to be healthy. It is, therefore, better to eat that fruit together with other foods at each meal - yoghurt or milk and grains or cereals at breakfast plus an egg or cheese and Lite margarine, for lunch combine fruit with cottage cheese or thin slices of lean meat or tuna fish and some wholewheat crackers with Lite margarine and for supper eat fish or meat with a starch (starch does not make you fat - overeating and excessive fat intake do) plus vegetables and a fruit. Click on 'Diet' and 'View old diet & food site' and read the articles on 'Balanced Diet I-IV' to get more info. Your craving for fruit may be due to the fact that you starve your body of carbohydrates.
