P90X - Is Eating Too Much Fruit Bad For Me?
So I guess I should start by saying that I'm 19 years old and pretty average weight (145). I'm on week 3 of P90X and I'm trying to stick to the nutrition plan as best as I possibly can but one thing I find myself constantly breaking is the fruit serving. According to the chart, I'm only aloud 1 fruit per day, but I end up eating 2 - 4, I don't think I'm breaking my overall calorie count (1800 a day) but I want to know if eating this much more fruit than I'm allowed is hurting me at all?

Gotta ask if you are a Man or Woman and what are you trying to accomplish?
Loose weight? Gain muscle...... how much?

The basic answer on fruit is that fruit is good for you.
The reason fruit is limited in the first phase is to cut your sugar wwwwaaayyy down. It's fruits one small downside. Sugar. Even though its natural good sugar it limits your bodies ability to start to shred.
So instead you end up pounding vegetables which really is a good way of getting your body to lean up.

If you are within 10 lbs of where you want to be, and you eat healthy and clean, fruit will be fine for you.
But if you want to lose more, it's vegetable central.

I'm a male and kind of a mixture of both, I want some muscle but not too much and I want to get more lean as well.

As a 19 year old 145 lb male I wouldn't restrict calories as long as they're clean calories.
Remember, you're still growing, unlike most people on these boards. You should be able to eat more than 1800 cals as long as they're quality goods. Stay away from processed foods, eat vegetables and fruit, beans, nuts, fish and lean meat. If you do that and kill your workouts you'll lean up and muscle up all at the same time. Don't get concerned with the scale. Judge how you're doing by how you look and feel.
