+1.

I grow some 20 varieties of exotic (to the U.S) fruits and eat my share of them as well as scads of veg with meals and with cycling my weight is under control, and near where I was in high school.

Things I stay away from are sugary soft drinks, artificially sweetened juices, and beer / alcohol, and chips of all sorts. Being Italian, limiting pasta, breads, cheeses and table wine to once or twice a week have worked well for me.

An ex-gf who was very slim said it best... "eat till you're SATISFIED not till you're full" one of the more sensible things I've heard about weight control.
