Fruit & Fat

YES Fruit is high in fiber, low in fat and calories and is a good source of vitamins and minerals.

BUT if your goal is to LOSE FAT, then FRUIT is not your best food choice.

Here is why:

Most fruit is abundant in fructose aka fruit sugar.   The problem with fructose is that it bypasses the enzyme (PFK-1) to convert carbohydrates into energy and therefore is shuttled directly into the liver and converted to FAT, then into the bloodstream and on to be stored in your FAT cells.

This enzyme that it skips (PFK-1) is responsible for determining if sugar gets stored as fat or glygogen.  Glycogen is your energy source and once those are full the spillover is then converted to fat.

If after reading this you still desire to eat fruit, then eat it in the morning and not past noon.

And if your goal is to lose BODY FAT and become LEAN, then FRUIT is not your friend: (
