My #1 Trick for Losing Weight + a GIVEAWAY

I have a sugar addiction. I love sweets and I eat candy often....Unless I have fruit. When I started Weight Watchers I was unsure of how I was going to stop eating chocolate and candy in the afternoon. I quickly figured out that if I packed fruit for an afternoon snack, I would no longer crave the chocolate or sweet candy that I was so accustomed to eating every afternoon. I did not realize how eating candy in the afternoon would make me feel sluggish at night and contribute to substantial weight gain.

 Fruit has been a godsend on my weight loss journey. Because fruit and vegetables (except for corn and a couple of other things) are 0 points on the Weight Watchers plan, I eat fruit like it is going out of style. I love to eat and I love to snack. Fruit has helped me stay on track with my diet while still allowing me the ability to snack throughout the day. Strawberries, bananas, grapes, apples, and oranges are all now my favorite snacks. I rarely eat candy or chocolate in the afternoons and when I do, it is most likely because I do not have fruit readily available.

I am excited to be teaming up with a group of bloggers to offer one lucky reader an amazing gift basket full of delicious fruit! One winner will have the opportunity to choose from 30 gift baskets.
There are a variety of fruit baskets to choose from. Some have nuts and fruit. Or chocolate and fruit. Or just fruit. Here is my favorite basket---full of Ghiradelli chocolates, apples, and oranges. This basket would be perfect to bring to the office or to enjoy at home. Which basket would you choose?
I like that the Gourmet Food Gifts website offers organic gift baskets as well. I love the cheerful butterfly and birdie cookie that is included in this basket. This basket is perfect for spring!
I have some crafty ideas for what I could do with these pretty baskets after eating all of the goodies!
What would you pick if you won?!

I absolutely love fruit and I do the same thing, whenever I feel the need to snack I grab some fruit, sometimes paired with some Greek yogurt. My current favorite is pineapple! xxx

I am TOTALLY addicted to sugar. Whenever I try to cut back on it, I definitely feel I would die without fruit.
