I can't stop snacking on grapes. I know its not from lack of carbs because i had a cheat day yesterday (and today, apparently). I tried distributing my fat equally through my meals for more satisfaction and it didnt help.

Remind me again what the fructose is going to do?

i think its cause the liver can only hold so much frutose so if u go over board it goes to fat cells but how many grams of carbs from fruit are u eating? if your eating carbs from other sources(oats,brown rice,yams) and some some portions of fruit i dont think it would harm u but grapes is not the best choice, if u see that your gonna go out of control with fruit try reaching for apples or strawberries.

today was kind of a weird day. In terms of carbohudrates today, i had a loaded breakfast including a big bowl of cereal and 2 cups milk, then veggies at lunch, and now nonstop fruit. I havent had any rice, potato, oatmeal etc. today. Dont know if thats important at all.

why strawberries and apples?

Lower GI, higher in fiber. Actually, in general, the lower GI a fruit is, the higher its fructose content (relative to glucose/sucrose).

It could be a number of things, Jane. Grapes are filling, usually pretty refreshing, and satisfy a sweet tooth. If you had a big, carb loaded day early on, you could be crashing right about now. Low blood sugar often leads to sweet cravings.

As calvin said:"I think its cause the liver can only hold so much frutose so if u go over board it goes to fat cells".
It can't be stored as glycogen in the muscles.

Grapes are great. If they're ripe and cold, they have an extremely satisfying mouth feel and they do satisfy a sweet tooth, unlike apples or oranges. They also have a high water content and decent fiber content, so they are also filling, far more filling than mangoes or apples(too bad because I love apples...)

Basically one grape has one gram of carbohydrate. Do the math.
