tuffguyndc saidwhere do you people get your information? jeeze, the fructose in fruit is more easily digested because fruit has it own enzymes that your body break down the fructose. eating regular fructose does not.
staples_jockey saidJerebear saidAre you losing fat (not just weight) while eating all the fruit that you are presently eating?
If the answer is yes, then ignore the websites and continue on. If the answer is no, then eat less of it and see what happens.
Personally, I eat fruit every day.
I'm losing, but I'm still really bowling ball shaped so I'm wanting to target my gut more. I have been switching off junk food to fruit. I feel great but I just seem to be losing fat from my arms and legs and not so much from my gut. Maybe that's just the way it's going to come off though. I feel like I've plateaued. I'm trying to control my carbs in general but that's actually resulted in eating more things that contain fructose.
Ermine saidI've heard people say to avoid fruits for a while to break your body's addiction to sugar.I've never heard that before, but I did stop ALL sugar intake for a couple weeks when adjusting to a low-sugar diet. Now bananas are about the sweetest thing I eat, and it's a huge sugar rush.
