Can eating alot of fruit be bad in any way?

Anything in moderation is good.
When cutting you should avoid every simple sugar.
When bulking 2-3 servings are good.

I think this is too much of a generalisation to be true.

Just to give a romantic tone... :D
It's a general principle though.
In other words:balance.

Yes it can.

just make sure you get at least five portions [in total] of fruit and vegs each day.

08-23-2001, 09:07 AM
5 portions of of fruit is too much.

08-23-2001, 09:17 AM
no, i said fruit AND veg.

Read properly next time you dyslexic big [:D] ass monkey...

The reason is sugar?

Easy to misinterpret, CD.

But I think depending on your purpose you may or may not want to limit fruit intake. (2-3), and substitute with more whole gains and veggies. Just MO.

that's what i meant killa.

5 portions of fruit and veg = either 2 portions fruit, 3 veg or 3 fruit, 2 veg.

What about 5 veg and 3 fruit? Is that too much simple sugars?

I had always thought that you could never have too much veggies.

as far as bodybuilding diets go foos like cack will say no fruit.

If you ask an SRD then they'll prolly go with what i said about fruit and veg.

BTW, fruit are the simple sugas, not veg [depending on the veg.]

radishes and

these are veggies you can eat pretty much as much as you want of...

i never eat fruit...EVER; is there anything wrong with that?? i take multi-vits, and lots of vegges, i just dont EVER eat any sugar, with the exception of post-workout.

08-25-2001, 07:01 AM
For a bodybuilder it's ok.
But if in the future you don't wanna look like you're 50years old when you're 40y.o you should reconsider it.

What special thing does fruit have that you can't get elsewhere?

08-25-2001, 07:37 AM
You need to take a lot of supps to get what a fruit contains.I support science though and I admit that supps may be a good alternative of real food.(to avoid a higher caloric and especially sugar intake which is not so healthy)

American scientists have created a list of antioxidants wich fight free radicals,the list of ORAC Value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity).

Fruits like plums,raisins are listed in the first places of this list.
It's the factor of your appereance after many years,when you will be 30-40 years old.Who wants wrinkles anyway?! *lol*

2 servings of fruit every day are not going to harm you,and if you know when to eat them you are not gonna gain any fat at all.

Veggies like cabbage and broccoli are listed high and can help too.(they don't have the same score as fruits have though.Ex Plums:5,750 units OPAK,Cabbage:1,770 units OPAK)

08-25-2001, 07:41 AM
That's good and all, but you can all of that from supps...right?

08-25-2001, 07:44 AM
I think yes.I don't know if their absorption is the same but theoritically you can get them from supps.

08-25-2001, 07:46 AM
Then I'll just take my supps and avoid the downsides of fructose.

08-25-2001, 07:53 AM
It's up to you.

I don't eat many fruits too.

But I eat avocados,so,I eat my fruit...

eat your fruit. most fruit does not have that much fructose in it. eg a apple(140 grams) will have about 14 grams of sugar which about 1/3 is fructose so eg 3 grams of sugar. so 5 apples then would equal 15 grams of fructose. well you are not going to get fat off 15 grams of fructose. apple is one of the fruits higher in sugar as well. strawberry etc are even low in sugar. and still have lots of antioxidants in them.
as for supps you can get all the antioxdiants etc in them. however there are so many its easier to eat the fruit. also with some the chemical version is not as well as abosrbed. plus fibre is in the fruit as well.
eat noth fruti and supp for extra protection.
