Not talking about fructose from corn starch but about the one which is considered to be evil by some elite nutritionists of the boards :D

Fruit will NOT make you fat, nor will carbs, unless consumed in excess.

Yup.

But, the thing is, the body can only handle a very small amount of fructose per day so you have a much higher potential for gaining fat.

As long as you don't have purely fructose as your carb source you should be fine. Treating yourself to some fruit with breakfast, mid-day, and maybe a little before bed shouldn't hurt.

During my mission last winter to 6% bf, fruit was a big part of my diet. During the day(8 meals) I'd eat 2 oranges, 2 bananas, and a cup of grapes. It didn't seem to slow my fat loss, in fact it seemed to help. I don't know that it helped for sure though, so I'll just say that it didn't seem to hurt. I was shedding fat just as fast as I had prior to the addition of fruit in my diet.

fruit is not that high in fructose. it still has other sugars present in it as well. and how much is to much for the body to handles as well as the human races years ago ate a lot of fruit.

As long as it's consumed in small portions and it's low gi,it can only aid in cutting,if you consume any carbs as well..

thats right, a bannana blended in with your malto or dextrose after training tastes great and provides a slightly longer lasting energy source!

Iment to say not all fruits are created equal as avacardo is very different to other fruits, with bananas higher in carbs than strawberries etc.

"Btw,while the topic is about fruit and we talk about alcohol " a thread that gets over ten post long is never ment to finish on the topic it started about.
i do like the fruit vodka over the plain while we are on the subject of alcholic fruit drinks.
chicken, cackerot will soon start drinking hooch and diamond white and white lightening. - this joke is for the british audience out there.

to get fat on fruit you would have to be eating in the region of a least 6 kg a day and for mosyt fruits this would give 2,400 kcals. most poeple do not eat anywhere near tha level. also the amount of energy required to metabolise the fruit will take it some of the energy as well.
