The whole point of carb-backloading is to do it with glucose or starch which is essentially chains of glucose, not fructose. Since glucose will elicit an insulin response, in order to shuttle glucose and amino acids into the cells, it is... (more)

nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.

My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?

Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of? Raisins should be avoided because they have astronomically high sugar levels, and half of that sugar is fructose. Fructose is toxic. The body can dispose of it safely in small amounts but... (more)

after a heat stroke it is normal to desire potassium, magnesium, water, and vitamins. I would not function properly these days without my 1/4 watermelon. Just eat in season fruits, rather than apples, which are out of season and vitamin/mineral poor. (more)

In a word, fructose. Fructose signals our bodies to pack on stores for the winter. Fructose is available in large amounts only at the end of summer, when ripe fruits are abundant. So we pack on the fat to be able to survive the lean times. (more)
