What's up with the fruit?

So what is the deal with fruit?
Some people love it, others can't stand it and others find it good but not as the first choice... I personally love fruit.

Anyways how should you deal with fruit when you're trying to lose weight?
Fruit is good for you and goes under the food category greens or fruit & vegetables. It is recommended that you eat 600 g a day or 6 a day as those wise (wo)men says, but this is the part where a lot of people gets confused including me at first.
When I first read 600 g I thought well okay then let me find some bananas, some apples or whatever... I thought I could get my daily g in fruit instead of vegetables. Not that I don't like them I just didn't really bother making dinner for just one person (me) at the time, so fruit or something would do it for me.
Oh well... then I discovered (learned) that, that was actually not that good and it is "recommended" that out of the 600 g you eat about 200 - 300g should be fruit and the rest is vegetables..
With that being said I have to be honest I still don't always follow it cause Im that big a sucker for fruit... but then again I once used to be "addicted" to chocolate so loving fruit instead is that really that bad?
There is still the fruit sugar you have to think about, but I don't think that is THAT BIG of a problem if you are a healthy person and you get some sort of exercise ..
But if you're trying to lose weight you definitely should follow the food recommendations even the not sot visible ones
