And why can't you have it post workout? I always though fruits were so good?

Who said you couldn't?

The only thing i could imagine being bad would be the excess fiber.

Perhaps you are talking about HFCS, and not fructose.

HFCS just sucks period.

Fructose is worse than HFCS. At least HFCS is half dextrose.

Fructose sneaks into your house and sets fires at night. That's why it is bad.


Use the search function.

That's pretty bad but I tried searching someone just give me a summary please.

I want to know how much fruit I can eat.

How much fruit do you want to eat? If you're eating a few pieces a day, that's just good for you. Berries are particularly wonderful - the brightly coloured fruits tend to be high in antioxidants.

Eat fruit. Just don't drink it. And keep it away from the immediate post-workout meal.

Ok that's pretty much all I needed to hear.

I usually do, but mine are about only good for shakes any more. Structural integrity problems with ripe ones until I get more.

Have a pre-workout shake.
