View Full Version : Fruit

I noticed a lot of people don't eat fruit, especially on cutting diets. Why is that? Too many carbs?

Should the amount of carbs you take in be more, less, or about equal to the amount of protein you take in? Is it diff on a bulk than a cut?

:D Thanks

yeah, remember, you are what you eat, and you don't want to be fruity.

Your ratio of carbs/protein should depend on your body and nothing else. Follow guidelines for a while then figure out what works for you. Stay away from coconuts, and IMO, pineapples. Strawberries are good, pears(although dense and arent very satisfying), apples, and oranges are also quite the bomb.

Oh yeah, deadlift. Deadlift enough and what you eat wont matter.

The sugar in fruit is partially glucose and partially fructose. Fructose prefentially refills liver glycogen, which puts one in something called the 'fed' state. This causes a decrease in lipid oxidation(As an aside, being in the 'fed' state is necessary for optimal anabolism.) Essentially, this means that your body uses less fat as fuel. So, if you're dieting it's best to keep fruit consumption to a minimum, although a bit won't hurt. One or two pieces is probably not going to be too much of a problem; 6 pieces is probalby a bit much, although it's probably pointless to worry about if you're not already fairly lean.
